I've just started at this site and am eager to start getting more credits. I have just listed a few writing handbooks that people might be interested in if you'd like to check my bookshelf! I'm more than willing to do a 2 for 1 credit deal!

Can you be the one to get to it first?

The race is on!

I will almost always accept an offer asking for 3 books for 2 credits unless all three books are very heavy. It costs less to mail 3 books to one person than to mail two books to two separate people so I get my credits for less cost that way and also make more room on my bookshelf for incoming books. Crafts, Cookbooks, Christian, Childrens, Reference, Homeschool, English, math, spelling, Wedding, Money Saving and Cleaning Tips and lots more on my shelf. I check all books before mailing to be sure they meet PBS guidlines and requestor conditions. I wrap in plastic first to protect from water damage and try to mail out within two days. I will also consider any reasonable offer as I need to downsize my bookshelf. Thank you for looking. Blessings, Peggy

I have 397 books for you to consider. Lots of childrens books, older books, craft, cooking, home and garden, young adult, biography, history, spelling, English, math and more. I will always do a 3/2 deal and a 5/3 deal. If you find more than 5 just PM me about a better deal. I really want to move some of these books to a new home. Thanks for looking. Peggy

I just posted a brand new copy of You Know You're a Writer When.......  It is a clever collection of sayings like ,"Sure you read the fine print but you think it needs work." and "You use em-dashes and semicolons in your text messages." This book would make a thoughtful gift for any writer.

I have a ton of books including the 420 posted on my shelf. I also have a lot of nice books which are not postable by PBS standards because of excess wear or minor water damage. Please help me give them a new home. I will include one or more of these with any order from my bookshelf.

The Hidden Staircase (Nancy Drew Mystery) older hardcover copy with pages starting to separate from binding

A Beka Book Primary Bible Reader (minor water damage)

Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George (minor water damage)

Thank you for looking and I hope you find something. I am very open to deals if you find two or more books on my shelf. Peggy

I have a large variety on my bookshelf and would love to send some books to new homes. I will always do 3 books for 2 credits or 5 books for 3 credits. You can sort my shelf by genre or by date posted if you don't have time to look at all the books. Enjoy! Peggy

I have a hardback copy of The Witchcraft of Salem Village from Landmark Books. It is copyright 1956 and the cover is quite worn, but the binding is good and pages are clean except for a few pencil underlinings. I will include this book free with any order from my shelf. Please send a PM to let me know you want this book. Thank you.

I just posted the 2009 Dramatist Guild Resource Directory.  It's still pretty up to date in terms of information, although if you want to use it you should double check this year's deadlines.  It's still chock full of useful info if you do any playwrighting.

Taken. That was quick.

I have an unpostable copy of the wishlisted cookbook More-With-Less Cookbook by Doris Longacre. I will include it free with any request of 3 books from my shelf. Make your request directly from my bookshelf and then send me a PM letting me know you would like the cookbook included. All pages are here but some are coming loose from the binding.....in other words the binding is breaking but no pages are completely separated yet. I have 490 books for you to choose from so I hope you find some you will enjoy. Thanks for looking.

I have a number of metaphysical books listed on my bookshelf in addition to my own children's book, The Lioness of Brumley Hallabout a magically gifted grandmother and grandchildren and their adventure to save the Faerie Realm of Urwelt.  I am slowly divesting myself of books I no longer need to share whatever knowledge they possess with others.  Other books are just interesting fiction that no longer need to take up space on my real bookshelf at home.  Happy Reading!
