I will mail books on Wed, Nov 14, but then will be out of town until Sunday Nov 18.  So.. if there are orders while I am out..please post freebie requests so that other don't order books already taken (Thanks :  )

5/2 Good On Entire Shelf: (will also do 8/3 or 11/4... the more I save on postage, the more books you get :  )

Order 2 books and then PM me with your freebie choices and also post your freebie choices here too so that other know what has been snapped up.

I just ordered a slew of books from the Book Bazzaar and need to build up my credits again... an endless cycle, huh?

Happy Looking!!
