From 1/15/09 until 1/21/09 I am offering 4 for 1 on all Christian, children, and romance books. You may mix and match as you please. I have WAY to many books and need to make room so I am blowing them out!!!!  **** All Beverly Lewis and romance hardback books are EXCLUDED in the 4 for 1 offer*****.

Just order the first book and PM me the other 3 you want for free. If for some reason one of the books you want has already been taken your credit will be refunded IMMEDIATELY.......... Literally within hours as I am on the site several times a day. Once I refund your credit I will send you a PM telling you which books or book you wanteded is no longer available. This should not be a problem as all books will be removed as soon as an order is placed but just wanted to mention it just in case.

P.S. I also just posted about 30 new hardbacks in mint condition with authors such as John Grisham, Nora Roberts, Micheal Crichton, etc..... but these are still one for one only. Just wanted to mention it in case anyone is looking for such books in mint condition.

World Religions by Warren Matthews


This is a textbook.  It has highlighting and/or written notes on 12.44% of the pages ( 50 out of 402).  They in no way affect the readability of the book; highlighting is a sentence or two out of a paragraph and notes are in the margins, usually only 1 or 2 words, except on page has a paragraph written, again in the margins.


It has 1 member wishing for it, and she does not want it due to the highlighting/notes.


Please put it on your WL and on auto request, and PM me - I can post it right to your WL.

Have a paperback copy of "Unleashing the Beast" by Perry Stone that has a torn (and taped) cover that makes it unpostable. The book is otherwise  in brand new condition.  the hardback version which is WL'd (but the 2 versions have the same ISBN).  Since it weighs over a pound (about 1 lb, 4 ounces) I would appreciate a credit for it to help defray postage.  PM me if interested.

I have two that are technically unpostable but still quite readable. The Wicca Handbook - has 3 on WL but unpostable due to some minimal underlining by previous owner. Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham - stain on cover & first 3 pages, I think somebody used the book for a drink coaster. Either one free with an order from my shelf, or I'll send you both for a credit to cover postage. PM me if interested.

I have been given the pleasure of cleaning out someone else's bookshelves and am not exaggerating when I tell you I've found THOUSANDS of books in boxes -- way too many for me to store and/ or post!!  So far, I've been checking to see if any are wishlisted, then sorting my piles to "to keep" or "to goodwill". 

PLEASE check out my bookshelf, but don't be fooled!  There are TONS more that haven't been posted! 

Do you have any specific books you are looking for in the Christian Non-fiction genre??  Most are 60s-80s; many in perfect condition.  Paperbacks and Hardcovers.  Also I've found poetry, playwriting, and a few other topics.  I think it may have been a church book collection at one point. 

PM me if you have a wish that I can look for.  I'll be finishing this cleaning out within the next week or so (I hope) and am happy to look for what specificaly you want.  I'm also willing to make deals -- just hate to see it all go to goodwill!

I have Pink Lemonade: Freshly Squeezed Insights to Stir Your Faith  in Like New, giftable condition. 

Pink Lemonade: Freshly Squeezed Insights to Stir Your Faith
Book Description:
Refresh Yourself. True Stories of Struggle, Strife, And Success. It all began with a wadded up scrap of paper that languished at the bottom of her purse, lost among the loose change and old gum wrappers. Gayle was working as a nurse administrator, when a salesman slipped her a note with a phone number, This is someone you should meet. Gayle read the name on the note: Rita Snider. Yeah, sure, I ll get right on it, she thought, dropping it into her purse. There it sat - for a year. One day, on impulse, Gayle fished out the note and called. As soon as she d said hello, Rita replied, Honey, I ve been waiting for your call. A few days later, Gayle visited with Rita, and listened to the remarkable story of her battle with breast cancer. Diagnosed at age 36, Rita began chemotherapy and lost her hair nine times over. After a humiliating search for wigs and prosthesis, Rita declared Never again! Determined to help others, Rita opened a shop called The Lemonade Stand. A place to come and be refreshed , it was a safe and comfortable salon that provided women with everything they would need for their own fight with cancer. For seven years, she tirelessly helped hundreds of women fight the same battle that she was fighting. Rita surprised Gayle by saying, The Good Lord told me that if I hung on long enough, He d send someone to carry on. As soon as you walked in, I knew it was you. As amazing as it sounded, by the end of the day Gayle decided to quit her job and devote herself to The Lemonade Stand. Rita passed away later that year, but Gayle kept her dream alive for over a decade more. Those years were filled with financial struggles, heartaches, and challenges without end; but there were countless gifts and rewards as The Lemonade Stand went on to help over 10,000 clients.
