Here's how it works:  I'm willing to send out as many books as I can fit within the weight limit.  1 credit gets you 2 pounds of books, 2 credits gets 5 pounds, 3 credits gets 10 pounds, PM if you want more.  Send me a list of books you want and I'll tell you how much they weigh together, or how many will fit into the number of credits you want to spend.  Obviously, hardcovers weigh more and you won't get as many per credit.

***New additional rule: I will hold books for 24 hours after I PM you about the weights.  After that, they become available to the next person who requests them.  I know the holidays are busy, but it's not fair to others to hold a list of books for someone who doesn't ever get back to me.***

My bookshelf has lots of oddball stuff on it - I post books that are Freecycled to me.  Scifi, thriller, mystery, spiritual, non-fiction, reference, pop culture, lots of great kids stuff for various ages.

I also have the following unpostables:

Rules of Prey - John Sandford (separating from binding, but all pages are tight)

U.S.S. Seawolf - Patrick Robinson (wavy from water damage, but not stained)

Eragon - Christopher Paolini (writing on cover and title page, spine is broken but pages tight),

Zodiac - Neal Stephenson (spine is broken and cover torn, but pages are intact),

Shelling and Beachcombing in Southern and Carribean Waters - Gary Magnotte (no ISBN),

The New Testament (pocket edition)

Rehersal for Love - Faith Baldwin (old, yellow, fragile, but intact)

Holy Bible - Contemporary English Version (no ISBN)

Cheats (volume 9)(a collection of game tips, cheats, and codes for almost all game systems) - severely dogeared and worn, but text is intact

Wow, I'm getting a ton of requests!  Just so everybody knows, books are going to the first person who PM's me.

Okay, so I've got 80+ books scheduled to be sent out, and everything that has been requested has been deleted off my shelf - that still leaves nearly 150 books.  Get 'em while they're cheap!

Books by the pound is temporarily out of service while I go on Christmas vacation.  I'll be back Dec. 29 and let you all know.

Okay, demand is petering out, so I'll do one last bump here and let it go...

If you want a huge pile of thrillers, now is the time!
