I have an unpostable copy of the wishlisted cookbook More-With-Less Cookbook by Doris Longacre. I will include it free with any request of 3 books from my shelf. Make your request directly from my bookshelf and then send me a PM letting me know you would like the cookbook included. All pages are here but some are coming loose from the binding.....in other words the binding is breaking but no pages are completely separated yet. I have 490 books for you to choose from so I hope you find some you will enjoy. Thanks for looking.

A couple unpostables needing new homes:

Fish & Chips by Trish Hilferty - Clean with minimal wear, but a victim of poor quality control in the binding.  The glue holding the cover and pages/book together has seperated.  I posted a PBS review of the book contents.

Grandma Rose's Book of Sinfully Delicious Cakes, Cookies, Pies, Cheese Cakes, Cake Rolls & Pastries by Rose Haftalin.  A clean and tight older hardcover edition with the dust jacket.  There's very minor water damage, so minor I didn't find it during my initial inspection (received via PBS).

I have 3 Rachael Ray cookbooks all in good condition.  One is even new I think - sure looks it - it's the problem because it is wishlisted.  I wanted to send all 3 to one person because of the weight.  I was told I couldn't make that offer (in Book Bazaar - multiple books same author) because one of the three was wishlisted.  Can I make the offer here?  I do want 3 credits for the 3 books.

Thanks for any interest/input into posting requirements, Katie

Thought I'd try go genre by genre to get things moving... I sell used books, and I *destroy* the ones that don't sell. I offer them here to try to avoid destroying them, but sooner or later... yeah, they get destroyed. Boo. Help avert the booktastrophe! lol Make me an offer.

I've listed 525 books, choosing only those that have NO OTHER COPY LISTED - I've only got a few books that appear in the Cookbooks, Food & Wine genre, but I'll try anything to lure lookers... :

Favourite Chicken Recipes (Favourite Recipes) Book Type: Paperback

Let's Give a Party Author: Susan Gold Purdy

The Pasta Book Book Type: Hardcover

ISBN 0761107754   Hardback

I am not sure I have ever used this cookbook, but when I opened it just now, I noticed that the glue has not held the pages to the spine in a couple places.   So I do not feel that it is postable.  I would like a credit to pay for the mailing if someone would like this cookbook.

I hope this is okay to post here.  If not, someone please let me know and I'll remove, but...

I have a wish listed Rachael Ray cookbook, Rachael Ray's Big Orange Book, (WL 49).  It's a brand new book, but it looks like someone went a little crazy with a box cutter when opening the shipping box.  The cover and first pages (2 or 3 only) have a slit through them. It's barely noticeable.  (In fact, I didn't notice it at all until I went to ship it to someone).  

I'd like to have one credit, to cover postage.  OR if you order 2 or more books from my shelf, I'll include it as a free extra.  Just let me know via message.  Thanks!  :)

Taken - thanks!

These are in really good shape for being published in 1966

2nd Edition Hard Cover  The Set is not complete and is missing the last 2 books

These do not have ISBN#s but have been entered in PBS with their random # selection when some one manually enters a book.

If you would like to view these just type Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery into the search bar

Would like 3 credits for the 10 books

Please PM me with any questions.
