I attended another book sale today. Below are some of the finds I'm posting. I already posted a few other titles that didn't have a WL.

Request one of the books below and receive another off my bookshelf for free. I'm waving my usual requirement of 30 days on the bookshelf. But you gotta PM me.

Also, take note of the unpostables both in the body of this message and in the signature. You may request as many of these as you want with any order.

I'd like the "King's Grey Mare" by Jawley if it hasn't been requested, and if you are mailing out freebies, I'd like to try the Alianor in your siggy line.

Thanks!

I really am in book sale country. I cut back on how many I attend for the sake of space in my book room. (Yes, I have a room for all my books. And then there's a teeny tiny corner for my computer. LOL)

If I retire now and live to be 100, I might - just might - be able to read most of them.
