I have not started it yet but would be interested in some opinions of the book. http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781401301910-1453+The+Holy+War+for+Constantinople+and+the+Clash+of+Islam+and+the+West

I got a bunch of these cheap and have been posting to the WL. I did not see it on anyone's WL here but if anyone wants one let me know.

No, I've not heard of it, but it sounds good.

I have more than enough. They are new overstock books a friend got cheap. I will post to your WL as soon as the current book posted gets claimed.

Patti, did you find these at a Dollar Tree store? I have found so many remainder copies of wishlisted books at Dollar Tree stores. You can't beat buying a brand new, HC book for just a buck! I went two weeks ago and bought three WL'ed books to post.

A friend gets all sorts of overstock stuff. I am not sure what the whole process is. He gets food, clothing, makeup, toys and sometimes books. He sells the stuff cheap for gas money and donates most of the food. He sold me a case of this book for a dollar each. I am hoping it is a good book. I have not tried checking the Dollar stores around here yet. I have looked at the books for my own reading but not for WL books.

The WL que is gone. That was fun, granting all the wishes on the list. I do have more copies left if anyone else wants to read it. Next step is to read it!

Just received my copy! Getting a brand new hardcover book in the mail is always great!

Hey, since we all are going to have this book, maybe it should be our first ever N/F BOM?!
