Back To Top

If you are desperate for "The Other Boleyn Girl" just order something else off my shelf and I'll happily send you my ratty old copy of this Wishlisted book.  Its my first time doing this "free with anything from my bookshelf" thing so I'm guessing you just IM me and let me know you want this one too as part of the deal.

Here's the damage scoop:

I did most of my reading in the tub, plus I have a kid, and two dogs, and I smoked all over the poor book.  Well, if you are desperate for a totally readable, but not all that asthetically pleasing copy of this book, let me know, and I'll send it for a credit.  Basically, it has some water damage, smells like hell, and the corners are messed up.  Oh, also, I did not know about PBS when I read this, so I wrote my name inside the book and I flagged some pages.  I guess the good thing is that the book was really loved.  There are probably food stains too.  Really, I make no guarantees about the book other than saying it is all readable.
