So here's the deal ....      I've got a large bookshelf - almost 600 books (mostly mass paperbacks) + a list of Wishlisted Books available + Unpostables available.   My bookshelf has been on vacation hold for about a year because I can't afford the postage for all of the single book orders I get.  (To give you an idea, I took my bookshelf off hold on 12/1 and already have orders for nine books.)  In the past, I've periodically taken my bookshelf off hold and offered a sale to bring down the per credit shipping price.   But I no longer have the storage room for the books on my bookshelf - and frankly I need the tax deduction from the donation for this year.   So ... this one last time, I'm offering all books on my bookshelf at a sale price of 4/2 (4 books for 2 credits) or 7/3 (7 books for 3 credits) .  Just order the two (or three) books that you want from my bookshelf and post the freebies that you want here on this thread so that everyone can see.

There are some wishlisted books listed on my Profile.   You can include ONE of these wishlisted books as one of your freebies if you want.  There are also some unpostable books listed on my profile and you can request one unpostable as an addition to every order.

If interested, I encourage you to take advantage of this sale soon.   Everyone who has ordered a book from me through FIFO has received the same sale offer.    Plus I have a postage $ cap.  When I hit that cap the sale is over and all books will be donated to charity.

Full Disclosure:   I have a Persian cat.  Also, many of the my books came from library sales.  Most of those were donated to the library and are not ex-library books, but some of my books are ex-library books. So if you have any Request Conditions regarding cats or ex-library books, please remove them or I cannot accept your order.

I've processed all requests to this point.  Thanks for the orders.  FYI - I am getting close to my postage $ cap.  About 75 books have been requested (but that still leaves 530 great books)

Also, I had to turn down one of the above requests because of a Requestor Condition for no withdrawn library books.   So, as a reminder, I'm reposting the note below:

I have a Persian cat.  Also, many of the my books came from library sales.  Most of those were donated to the library and are not ex-library books, but some of my books are ex-library books. So if you have any Request Conditions regarding cats or ex-library books, please remove them or I cannot accept your order.
