Well, hey, I'll start!

All paperbacks on my shelf are always 2 for 1! I'm also willing to consider deals on multiples by the same author, or within the same genre.

I'm a pretty fast reader so I add books to my shelf almost daily......

Hope you stop by my shelf soon!

Claire

I have almost 900 books listed from my used book store I had to close.  They are always 3 for 2.  All genres except series romance (Harlequin, etc)  Take a look.

If you like mystery, try Lynda LaPlante. Wonderful with strong female main character.

Hubby said he's tired of all my boxes of books taking up space in his garage. It's only 3 boxes! :( But he said they all gotta go.

I am offering 3 for 1 on all paperbacks on my bookshelf. Order 1 and PM me your 2nd & 3rd picks. Hardbacks are 2 for 1(I only actually have a few of these, 90% of my books are paperback.) This offer is good on all books in all genres.

Thanks for looking!

Trying to clear off my small shelf just so I can get rid of the box they're sitting in which always seems to be in the way no matter where I put it.  No reasonable offer refused...these books may be donated if I don't get rid of them in the next couple of weeks.  My summer goal - a clutter free house.

Thanks for looking & pm me with any deal ideas you may have.
