I just posted 6 big beautiful Reader's Digest Explore America series books that I love but have no room for. They are all in brand new condition. The titles are "Great American Journeys", "National Parks", "Historic Places", "Back Road & Hidden Corners", "Just Off the Interstate" ane "Our Living History". They would be great for vacation ideas, for getting to know other parts of the country, for dreaming about where to go, and they have beautiful pictures, lots of maps and lots of info. Because I want someone else to enjoy them I'm willing to do a 2-for-1 deal on them. You can order one and get one free or you can order 3 and get the other 3 free. If you want to be sure to be able to get all 6 (or the 2 you want) just order exactly what you want and I will gift you back the credits for the free book(s).

PM me if you have questions and I will try to check here often today.

Thanks! Cindy

Am looking for deals on adventure/travel books on cassette tape, for example two audio books for two credits (one for one etc.) Prefer non-fiction, unabridged, similar to books by Jon Turk, Jon Krakauer, Sebastian Junger,etc. Especially water adventure (ocean survival, river kayacking etc.) or mountain climbingbut open to many topics. (Cross-posted on Book Bazaar).
