For years I bought Harlequin Presents books at every thrift store and yard sale I could find them at. I mostly stopped that probably close to 10 years ago, and I mostly stopped reading them several years ago.  (So these are mainly from the 80s and 90s.)

I had 50+ on my unread shelf that I’m finally trying to clear out to make room for other books. Since the stack that I read and kept is even larger, that stack should be more than enough if I start reading them again!

Here’s the deal, good only for Harlequin Presents:  Order one from my shelf, pick 6 more from my shelf and/or the unpostables list below.  (Please provide the numbers, as that's the easiest way for me to pull the right books from the actual shelf.)  Multiple orders are fine!  7/1, 14/2, 21/3, etc.

Please post here with your choices, and PM me. I’m online fairly often. 

See unpostables list below.

ETA: deal now over!

Most of these are unpostable due to either the cover paper being split at the edges, or the bottom right corner of the front cover being cut off (larger than the allowable in the rules). When going through them, I did not see any with mold. There’s even a few that might be postable, but I’ll err on the side of caution.

All the Presents on my shelf do have their numbers, covers, and descriptions available here.

If you are, I'll take you up on the offer and make it easy. I ordered # 688. Throw in any other 3 from your shelf you want to get rid of... and 605, 1131, and 1452 from the unpostables.  If you have finished the deal, could you let me know so I can cancel the order before it goes to someone else? Thanks. I'll send  you a pm also.

Kristin
