Sorry, if there was already a thread for this.

I have City of Shadows by Ariana Franklin ISBN 9780060817268. Due to a swap I participated in, in the Game Forum I need to list this book in the FIFO or send it to a friend. So I wanted to offer it here before the FIFO. If anyone wants it let me know or i will list it in the FIFO Monday night (May 7).

I have an unpostable Madonna of the Seven Hills--happy to just send it along. Perfectly readable, got it on here but not willing to re-post it as it has some stains.
