I am offering this one free with an order of 1 BL. Received through PBS but had diving lessons in the mail apparently. Last 2/3 of book, top 2/3-1/3 of pages wavy and stained, back cover and 1/3 of spine is slightly buckled. Quite readable but unpostable. PM me with your booklist choice.

I have a wish-listed book under a different ISBN ...

This book is classified under both SF and Fantasy, so I'm posting in both places.

Obernewtyn (Obernewtyn Chronicles)
Author: Isobelle Carmody
ISBN-13: 9780765342676 - ISBN-10: 0765342677
Book Type: Paperback
Publication Date: 2003
On My: Bookshelf

Seven people have this wish-listed under Mass Market Paperback, published in 2008.
Five people have this wish-listed under Hardcover, published 1999.

My copy is in very very good condition, looks brand new. But I did buy it at a yard sale and it smells smokey.

I have an unpostable "I'm the Vampire, That's Why" by Michele Bardsley (WL),

"The Vampire Who Loved Me" by Teresa Medeiros and

"Touch the Dark (Cassandra Palmer, Bk 1)" by Karen Chance (WL).

All have problems with the spine. Enough that I don't feel is postable.

I also have, The Mists of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley (paperback, slight waterstain) and

"Dune" by Frank Herbert (no ISBN, mass trade paperback, old, browning pages, but in good shape).


Any one is free with an order from my shelf, credit or PM me a deal. Thanks!

I have the Light Fantastic, Book 2 of the Discworld series, available on my shelf - many other editions are wishlisted, but mine ISBN   ISBN-13: 9780061020704 isn't for some reason: Link  Also, Guards! Guards! (VImes' first feature book..) also posted!

 AND I just finished reading the Wyrd Sisters, Book 6 - but it is unpostable due to unfortunate placement of an uncapped pen in my briefcase! The final 4-5 pages have a nice 1/2 inch blue-ink stain at the top of the pages NO WORDS are obscured, so completely readable. Just not postable for a credit!  It's this version (an older publication): ISBN-13: 9780451450128/  Link  One member is wishing for this edition (any way I can find out who and offer it to them for free?), but about 30 are wishing for the other various editions...

If any fellow Pratchett fans is looking for a well-read and slightly inkstained copy of Wyrd Sisters for personal enjoyment, I'd be happy to throw Wyrd in with any order from my shelf! Make your book order & PM me the request for Wyrd Sisters? THANKS!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Choose Your own Adventure) Colony, Night Terrors

Silvana de Mari The Last Dragon

Diane Duane Young Wizards 1-3

When I was a child I read a book called the Black Unicorn by her that I loved. I am actually trying to find it again..That was the only book I ever read by her though.
