If you are interested, please pm me.

Help!! I have around 40 wishlisted books that I am looking to send out, but postage is killing me.  Please take a look at my list of wishlisted books and let me know if there are two (or more) that you would love to receive.  Keep in mind that some of these are ex-library books from library sales.  PM me if you have any questions......  Thanks!!

TAKEN

I have the complete series available and I would like to send it to one person who would like all three books.

Book 1, The Innocent has no copies in the system, but it's not currently WL.

The other two, Book 2, The Exiled and Book 3, The Uncrowned Queen, (a/k/a The Beloved) each have a single copy in the system.

Please PM and I will post them to my shelf so you can order directly from me.

I have an unusual/out of print historical published in the 1980s: Juniata Valley by Virginia Cassel. It's the only copy in the system, and is an ex library copy (very clean and in good condition).

I actually ordered this from Better World Books after reading a book blogger recommendation. It's set in pre-Revolutionary frontier America - the Juniata Valley is in Pennsylvania. I'd characterize it as light historical fiction, if that makes sense: plenty of historical detail, but also a lot of human drama.

It's available on my bookshelf! I also have a 3 books for 2 credits deal if you find anything else you like.

I did'nt realise how this worked really, I'm new. So when I asked about "outlander" series books, I meant or should have said, to trade or can you only buy them on PBS.

Again I apologise.

I do thank my new friend who brought it to my attention.

Not sure if I can post ARC's here, or only in the Book Baazar thread.  

Here's goes...delete if needed.

 All three have a wish list here on PBS.  All are trade paperback size.  Gently read twice.  Asking a credit...deals are always possible however.  Added lots of HF to my bookshelf over the last week or so....

Manda Collins-A Good Rake is Hard to Find-this one is straight historical romance

Jan Moran-The Winemakers-loved it!

Brady Purdy-The Queen's Pleasure
