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!

I have 16 Doonsbury books. I'd like them all to go at once.  4 credits takes them all!  These are earlier Doonsbury's--still clearly political, but I find a lot more humor in them than the more recent ones.  Less serious and more still with the college-kid-streak through them.

I have No Son

The President is a Lot Smarter than you Think

Even Revolutionaries Like Chocolate Chip Cookies

An Especially Tricky People

Don't Ever Change, Boopsie

Speaking of Inalienable Rights, Amy...

As the Kid Goes for Broke

A Farewell to Alms

What do We Have for the Witnesses Johnnie?

You're Never Too Old for Nuts and Berries

Bravo for Life's Little Ironies

Just a French Major from the Bronx

Adjectives Will Cost You Extra

The Thrill is Gone, Bernie

Gotta Run, My Government is Collapsing

Dress for Failure, I See

Well, I have another stack of cartoon books to offer. This time Vintage Peanuts with Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest.  9 credits for 35 books.

There are standard comic collections, stand-alone stories, and based on the TV Specials books. They are from the 50s/60s/70s, a few from the 80s, and one from the 90s just to cover another decade. Most are on the older side, but some are in color anyway.  Most are mass market size, but not all.  Condition varies from good to clearly well loved--only one is seriously damaged and I noted it below. They are several decades old; they don't look brand new--covers are creased, etc.

In titles S=Snoopy, CB=Charlie Brown. I didn't feel like typing that much!
