I have a "semi-mystery" box of 34 classics books. The kind you had to read in English/Lit class.  Shakespeare/Wright/Defoe/etc.  Most are paperback. Some are older, some are newer, some are a bit battered (most aren't).  Some of them are easily listable on PBS, but a lot of them don't have ISBNs and are just more work than I want to do. :P

Asking 8 credits for the box.   Post here & drop me a PM please. Thanks!

Has been claimed. Thanks!

Heh.

While this is a box of books, it is not a Box-Of-Books.

Before anyone gets annoyed at me for not currently being a member of BoB.   Asking credits, so not trying to get around the rules, just offering a deal.
