  The book is totally readable but has some grease spots on the first few pages.  Pm me if you would like it and I will send it to you on my next trip to the post office.

TAKEN!

I have all six of the Lymond Chronicles looking for a new home. Gently read, the editions I have are at the top of this Amazon page. I'm only interested in the postage expense (have to weigh them first to see how much), not a bunch of points. Amazon GC in exchange for postage costs welcome.

I have an unpostable copy of Barbara Kingsolver's Prodigal Summer. It was a PBS swap to me, but as I read it I noticed 3 or 4 torn pages---does not affect readability at all but I won't repost it.

Don't know if anyone would be interested but I have a couple old books from a 'retired' cowboy & his wife.

"Ghost Towns of the West"  A Sunset Pictorial, a pictorial guide to towns and mining camps that opened the West, 1971 (big heavy book)

"South Pacific Coast", by Bruce A. MacGregor, 430 illustrations, Roster, Maps, builder's drawings, 1968 (big heavy book)

"Letters of a Woman Homesteader" by Elinore Pruitt Stewart, True Story, 1961

I have hundreds of other books but have my shelf closed due to health problems. These are some I had in my eBay pile...but I so hate eBay...

Thanks!

Hi Christa - if you still have Alinore's (SP?) book may I get it from you? Do I just buddy you the credit?

I'm off to see what other treasures on your shelf.

Thank you,

debbie

I have a perfectly readable but unpostable copy of Sarah Dunant's In the Company of the Courtesan--free if you want it.
