I just posted "A Prayer for Owen Meany", by John Irving. I noticed that someone wants it, but there is no ISBN on this book so you may not be notified. Check it out!


Also, I posted a copy of "Weave-world" by Clive Barker. It has an ISBN, but it's for a hardback or a BIR. These are from an old book club called 'Quality Paperback Book Club'.

My mother-in-law gave us all of  these books for Christmas for a couple of years.  Seer if they're the ones you want!


Almost forgot! I also have the Select Editions by Reader's Digest by Roberts, Johansen, Fannie Flagg, and Julia Spencer-Fleming. I know some had that wish-listed.

Hope, just an FYI, if your book "Weave-world" is a paperback and the ISBN says the book is a hardcover, you must list your copy without an ISBN, you cannot post a paperback to a hardcover listing. If you mail this to someone you can receive a mark against your account for doing so.

Info on this is on the following Help Center pages:

Hope they help.

When I enter the ISBN on my paperback, the listing shows a hardcover!
If the information on a book listing in the database is incorrect...
A requestor says there is a problem with a book I sent!

Thanks for the warning. I noticed that some of the older large paperbacks had 2 ISBN, so I made sure i used the one that posted as paperback.

Just didn't seem right to send someone a paperback when they thought they were getting a hardback!

I've noticed that the older paperbacks hold up better than the newer hardbacks! And none of them are as tough as my grandfather's books, published over 100 years ago.

guess that's how they keep the prices down.

Anyway, thanks.
