I still have 17 "More" magazines from 2007 & 2008. I would be happy to ship three issues for 1 point....I will list them if anyone is interested.  Will make a deal for all of them..........just need to meet the postage.  I might be interested in trading magazines....what do you have?  I love craft magazines....  or craft books.....

Anybody interested in all 17 'MORE' magazines for 4 books from your bookshelf?  Let's talk.....

In case you are wondering what 'more' magazine is:  quoted from their website:


"Older women who can't relate to most young-and-trendy fashion and lifestyle magazines now have a publication that speaks to their concerns about health, beauty, relationships, finances, travel and looking good over 40. More, which is owned by the well-established Ladies' Home Journal, will help you make the most of your middle years with style."

This is the list to my list of 61 wishlisted books that are unposted.  Some fiction, but largely a bunch of 12-step, self-help and mental health books for professionals.   I was recently given a huge supply of these and most of them are brand new or they appear to be.   Please have any request on auto-request on your wishlist with no requestor conditions.  I want to mail a minimum of two books but that can be combined with my regular shelf. 


I want a credit each for the wishlisted ones.  If you do use my regular shelf, I am open to a deal on those only. 


The books are from a non-smoking home with pets.   Thanks for looking!
