*

  Cowboy Christmas (Heartquest Anthology)
(an extra copy given to me, generically signed by Lisa Harris only (meaning just her name she signed on a matching label).  (I'm keeping my personally-signed-to-me copy.  :) But don't need 2 of them, so am letting one go.)

 *The Shield of Honor (Wakefield Dynasty #3)  (taken)

 *The Ramparts of Heaven (Wakefield Dynasty #5) (I think she read #5 before giving it to me- the pages aren’t as bright white as the other books or it could be that they used different paper in printing – it’s still in excellent condition. (taken)

That's just a partial list of all the great books I have on my shelf- click my bookshelf to see the rest! (and I am constantly adding more) 

The  used books are in good-used condition  (some are gently read/ read once/excellent shape) - all meeting PBS acceptability standards. (i.e.- some may have corner covers creased, covers scratched, slightly dented, corners of some pages folded over, initials in front cover or on first page etc. Most don't. If you want specifics- PM me.)

************************************

***I ship my books in recycled (used) padded envelopes, or I wrap them with bubble wrap or other plastic (in case of bad weather) which I then put in manilla envelopes (or something similar) and seal carefully. I also have small boxes I use for larger orders.***

 

Below is my list of freebies- unpostables OR good condition books that don't meet PBS standards - one free with each book ordered:

 

Unpostables:

Inspirational romance:

*Heartsong Presents Christian romance (from their first year) - #42- Mary Hawkins "Search for Tomorrow" (has a small bit torn away from top back cover)  taken

*Heartsong Presents Christian romance (from their first year)- # 8 - Colleen Reece "Desert Rose"- (pages wavy from moisture or cold- not sure which. There is no staining, except for the usual fading of inside cover and lightly on edge pages that comes from age)  taken

*Ina- Serenade/Saga (imprint of Zondervan) by Karen Baker Kleting- a historical inspirational romance from a discontinued 80s Christian romance book club- cover is badly creased, a bit bent at back. pages intact and in good condition 

 *Family Ever After (a short story - "Tiny blessings tale" - by Linda Goodnight) + sneak peek preview of two LI books from Marta Perry and Lyn Cote (2007 freebie booklet from Love Inspired- cover is a bit creased some pages folded over at corners)

 or...

Good condition freebies:

*(Love Inspired)- Irene Hannon- "Rainbow's End":  In excellent condition-  but it was sent by Love Inspired as a free gfit incentive to join their club  (says so on the book) and I feel weird posting it as a regular order for that reason. :)  taken

bumped for Monday - also want to say I've added more books to my bookshelf.  :)

**Please note: Only those novels and novellas by Pamela Griffin are signed. (And in the novellas, only signed by Pamela, not the other authors.) **

The Heartsong by Jerri O' Dell is the only book on my bookshelf that is not brand new (never been read) but it's in good condition.

"Chalice of Israel" is also brand new - never been read. (I received 6 of them from the publisher by mistake, and was told to keep them, but I don't need more than one. *grin*)

So all of what I have (at this time) can be considered gift quality. If you need them in time for Christmas, let me know and I'll mail first class (mailing by Dec. 18th *I think* should still make it there in time, but I can't guarantee it, though I'll do my part). If you don't need it by Christmas, I'll mail media.

Keep checking back, as I'll keep adding books as I find the time...

thanks for looking! :)

Thanks, Amy! :) I PMed you.
 
To all interested- I just posted more Christian fiction on my bookshelf:
 
Of the Christian fiction youth/teen books I posted:
 
Freedom Trap
&
The Great Florida Chase (X Country Adventures) -
 
are both brand new and gift quality- (gifts I’d put away for my kids, who’ve now outgrown them)
 
The Elizabeth Gail books by Hilda Stahl are in used but good shape. (slight dents/scuffing on covers, that sort of thing- but meets PBS acceptability standards)
 
Of the romances listed today-
 
The Love Inspired I listed – Sadie’s Hero - has a crease at bottom right corner of cover, as if it was bent backward – it still fits with guidelines for acceptability, but just wanted to state that. Also it, and all other Love Inspired books I may list are all included on the 2 for 1 credit special, good through January 9th.
 
All the others are in good but used shape.
 
Only all of the books by Pamela Griffin- or ones that have PG’s story in them, (i.e.- anthologies)- are brand new and never read, unless otherwise specified. Chalice of Israel is also new, never read.
 
*** Please note: ONLY Heartsong Presents and Love Inspireds are 2 for 1 credit ***
 
All other books – hardbacks, anthologies, trade size, Christain youth fiction – are all 1 book for 1 credit
 
Thanks to those who have responded! :)

I am slowly but surely building up my credits… lol

bump-  to say I posted 10 more books today. (Christian romance, Christian youth, and one nonfiction Christian book).

More coming...

Also, I have three unpostables and if you would rather not do the 2 for 1 on the Heartsong or Love Inspireds, I can give you one of the unpostables instead -  1 unpostable for each order (credit) given of any book on my bookshelf. If you want the 2 for 1 on HPs (Heartsong Presents) and LIs (Love Inspired)- I can do that too. I hope to have more Love Inspired up soon. (I'm behind on reading. lol)

I posted my 3 unpostables in the unpostable thread, but here they are again:

one is a Heartsong Presents Christian romance (from their first year) - #42- Mary Hawkins "Search for Tomorrow" (has a small bit torn away from top back cover)

two are girls' youth Christian fiction:

Elizabeth Gail and the Silent Piano (#10)- by Hilda Stahl - (top edge of outside pages only have a very faded stain)

The Ally- The Charleston Years/ Christian Heritage series- by Nancy Rue (#2)- front cover creased in a few places- first pages at top edges and bottom are a bit bunged- but all are perfectly readable

 edited to say The Ally is also boy's youth (young teens)

Got it, Cozi! :) Thanks. Books are on the way to you.

 

To all interested in great Christian fiction for adults and children, I have updated my bookshelf with many more titles- too many to list individually. I also have more nonfiction up there too. And classic fiction/ historical fiction homeschoolers will enjoy as an aid to curriculum (I was a homeschooler while my boys were in middle school and have some of their books left that I haven't given away. Also, my youngest was sent a girl's order by mistake (when he went to an online homeschool in Jr. High) "extras" the school sends, all brand new, so I am getting rid of those and will list them soon. Some are already up. If you want details- to know the condition of the book, whether it's one of the new ones or if they've been used- PM me.)

Current sale- order any book on bookshelf and get a free Heartsong Presents or Love Inspired of choice (just send me a PM with the title you want) AND get your choice of an unpostable (listed at bottom of first post of this thread). Some are new, just don't fit PBS qualifications  (like being a free gift from pub and saying it on cover, or a booklet instead of a full sized book, etc. I will also be listing a few Christian fiction ARCs I have in the unpostables soon.)

***summary of sale: With each book you order you get one free romance (single title/ non trade size- check tags at bottom to know if it fits) and one unpostable of choice.***

Thanks for stopping by! :)
