I am not exaggerating when I say we've just found 1000s of books -- in boxes -- in a room I've been tasked to clean.  Most are Christian non-fiction from the 1960s-80s; many in wonderful condition.  Too many to post and store.  They will go to goodwill if they aren't currently on someone's wishlist. 

PLEASE look through my bookshelf.  I am willing to make deals!  Also PM me if you're looking for a specific book in this genre.  I'm finding box after box after box.  AND put reminder books on wishlist so I can see what you all want.  I can't see reminder books, so I won't save those. 

Thanks for checking me out!

People have been PMing me and I am fervently searching through my newly aquired piles to find what you all are looking for.  Mostly 60s-80s, a TON of Christian non-fiction but also random other topics -- poetry, plays, a few cookbooks, older computer stuff. 

I can't store them all so they'll go off to goodwill if they can't find a home on paperback swap.  PM me and I'll search through the piles.  It's worth a shot!!

OK, I caved last night and put a couple of boxes up on my bookshelf.  I don't plan on leaving them there for long, so please check them out!  I'm happy to make deals -- just help me get rid of these books I've inherited before it becomes too much and I give them to goodwill. 

 

THANK YOU!

I am absolutely willing to consider deals!  Unfortunately, I am pretty unfamiliar with these books (they are my from my dad's shelves) so I'm not sure what genre is what.  PM me and let me know what you're looking for -- by author or year published or whatever.  Also, I have a pile of  books I've categorized as "old time evangelists/ missionaries" and a pile I've categorized as "basic Bible study and Bibles" -- neither (pile) of which I've posted.  Honestly, it's just amazing the amount of books around me; I can only do so much. 

But I'm happy to make the list (Tuesday night is my self-set deadline) and PM you some titles if you're interested in either of my categories.

Thanks Michele.  I've gotten to the last box and posted what I had the energy for.  Tonight, I'll go through a couple more piles and throw the titles up on this forum.  Also, If you PMed me and haven't heard back, that's on my list for this week as well. 

And thanks to all who've ordered and helped me clean out this room.  I am looking forward to it all being gone!!  :o)

Don't send the books (please) until I have a chance to come over and take a final look...  maybe on Sunday?
