I guess we have not started an available book list for August

I have

The Heretic's Wife by Brenda Rickman Vantrease

Avalon:: Anya Seton

You can either buddy me a credit or put on your WL. They do not have to go together.

Oh Alice I'm so glad that you started this thread since I have: Nothing Now - these are all taken and I can't get the darn thing to cross them out

The Kitchen House :: Kathleen Grissom
ISBN-13: 9781439153666 - ISBN-10: 1439153663
My Name Is Mary Sutter: A Novel :: Robin Oliveira
ISBN-13: 9780143119135 - ISBN-10: 0143119133
A Red Herring Without Mustard: A Flavia de Luce Mystery :: Alan Bradley
ISBN-13: 9780385342322 - ISBN-10: 0385342322
And an unpostable of Calico Palace by Gwen Bristow. The reason it's unpostable is that it is quite an old copy with a price of $1.75. The cover has been taped, apparently to protect the corners and otherwise, the book is very readable. Free with any order above or from my shelf.
 All gone already!
