TAKEN

Hope this is the right place for this.

I have an unpostable Child of the Phoenix (Barbara Erskine), different ISBN from the wishlisted ones.

It has a small smudge at the top of one page (not on the text) and there are a couple of small 1/4 inch tears at the bottom of the binding cover over which I have applied clear tape.  Other than that it's in great shape..(all 922 pages)..I bought it new (remainder mark present) from BookCloseoutscom

asking a credit.                     PM me, will post to your wishlist.             This is my book:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Child-Phoenix-Barbara-Erskine/dp/0007280793/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1272835707&sr=1-2

I have Grave Goods by Ariana Franklin (72 wishers) available if anyone wants it.  You can take just that one, or as part of a three for 2 deal off my bookshelf.

Deb was quick on the draw!

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

 

I have a soft cover version of the original HB version of Caesar's Women by Colleen McCullough ISBN 068809371X but the PBS system lists this particular version as HB which it isn't.   I don't want there to be any misunderstandings, but if you would like this book just PM me.  I just received a gorgeous HB version from a fellow PBS member, so I don't need my old one.   Taken, thanks!
