I live across the street from a used book store. I go there at least twice a week. I get deep discounts for being a contributer and a 'frequent flyer.'  I can't post the entire contents of the store here, but if you are looking for something particular, feel free to PM me and I will check if they have it, then list it and PM you to let you know it's in my bookshelf. Please make sure to specify if you need an exact ISBN or have a special condition like 'no ex-library books' or 'need large print.'

*this is a free service from someone who will take any excuse they can find to go hang out at the bookstore ;)

 *This store is arranged by genre, e.g. mysteries, romance, childrens, etc.  I am getting requests for books by authors I haven't heard of, so I don't know where to start looking. When requesting books from me, please let me know which genre I might start looking for that author in. Thanks, that will make things a little easier for me!

Emily, I'm looking for the following:

The Free Lunch (ISBN-13: 9780312865245 - ISBN-10: 0312865244 ) by Spider Robinson.

Wish You Were Here (ISBN-13: 9781857236873 - ISBN-10: 1857236874 )by Tom Holt

I'm number one on the WL for these books under these ISBNs. but it looks like Wish You Were Here is only listed with the particular ISBN anyway.  The Free Lunch is listed under two and I'm number one for the hardback version/number 3 for the paperback, so if you find it in paperback, you'll get an order.  Postable per PBS guidelines is fine with me. FYI, if you find any Tom Holt and Robert Rankin books, grab them.  These two are a bit of a pain to find in the US.  I'm on the WL for a handful of books by these two, along with several other people, so it would be a good purchase on your part. :-)

Thanks for looking!

Sandy

edited because one of the books I listed just came in!!

Emily, my youngest son just returned this week after backpacking for six weeks across Europe and Asia. I would love for him to read Neither Here Nor There by Bill Bryson. Perhaps a copy of this book is hidden somewhere in the recesses of the bookstore. Thanks SO much for looking!
