What am I supposed to post?  the books I "have" that are unpostables, or the ones I "want" that I will "accept" even when they are unpostable?

Please have patience with me, I'm still new.  :)

I have these 2 books that one member is wishing for:

The Body Book: Recipes for Natural Body Care by Anne Akers Johnson

Friendship Bracelets by Laura Torres

Both of these are unpostable because they don't have the extra things that go with them it just the books. They are free with anything from my shelf.

Happy Hollisters at Pony Hill Farm by Jerry West - Mine's a first edition from 1956, so it's been through the mill.  A few scorch marks, random stains, the back cover has some paper stuck to it.  Still very readable, though.

The Lost Constitution by William Martin - cover's ripped, first few pages are ripped but not where the text is, page 625 has a small rip, but still readable

Lady Chatterly's Lover by DH Lawrence - quite a few mystery stains, but still readable

Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and the Middle Class Do Not by Robert Kiyosaki - in good shape, but a whole lot of highlighting

Personal Financial Planning by Lawrence Gitman and Michael Joehnk - Has a little bit of water damage on the edges of one corner, pretty minor and barely visible on the pages; otherwise postable as textbook quality

Hello!

I have an unpostable CSI Miami book Cut And Run  by Donn Cortez free with an order from my shelf.  There are 11 wishers for it as of now.  It's unpostable because somebody here sent it to me, and the last page has the top corner torn off.  Some words are missing, but  don't pertain to the story, and you can pretty much infer what it says anyway.

I have a hard cover ex-library copy of Victoria Victorious by Jean Plaidy (#4 of the Queens of England Series).  I was on the fence about whether it was postable or not so I'm offering it free with any order from my shelf.  It appears that when the book first came out the flaps of the dust jacket were glued to the inside cover of the book.  Well over time (the book is 21 yrs old) the glue wore off leaving yellow marks on the inside of the cover where the glue used to be and on the dust jacket where the glue was.

I don't want to risk posting it so its free with any other order from my shelf.

I have Sarah Strohmeyer's The Cinderella Pact. 100+ wishers for this copy...ISBN 9780451221247. About the last 50 or so pages have minor water damage along the top. It's still perfectly readable, in fact the water damage doesn't even reach the wording on the pages. Free with any request from my shelf.

I have Katherine Stone's CAROLINE'S JOURNAL - Hardback copy, ex-library in very good condition except it looks like some pages might have gotten too near some water.  You can't tell by just looking, you have to go through the book to find them.  ISBN 0788323315.

 

Free with any book from my shelf.  Just PM me.  Pat
