Somewhere on its rounds this book received some water damage. It is not bad enough to even show stains on the pages, but you can see some minor dimpling and can feel the swollen area. It does not interfer with reading - all pages are readable. This is a paperback edition.


Please message me if you are interested. Thanks


Taken - thanks

I have the autobiography of Patty Duke, Call Me Anna.  It's a very old PB, yellowed and showing lots of wear, so a freebie it is!

PM with your info if you are interested.

Bryson travels around England and Scotland. 

Trade paperback, slight, barely noticable water damage.

Still available. In case you didn't know, Bill Bryson's travelogue is filled with funny stories. Including at the beginning of the book where he sleeps on the beach and puts his underwear on his head to keep warm then goes into town in the morning, forgetting to take them off until a kind stranger suggests he might want to do that.

Book was new, but somebody cut an illustration ouf of page 113/114 (about 1/4 of the page).  Still a good book, would be an excellent reference for home schooler.  Free but I would appreciate an order off my BS (not required).

The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain -- WL 11

The back cover is torn, and there is major water damage to the last chapter or so of the book. It almost looks like it was dropped in a puddle. This does not affect readability, and there is no mold or anything gross associated with it.

I have a copy of "Who was Robert E. Lee?" -- one of the books in the "Who was" series.

The left corner looks like it's been a bit mangled but the rest of the book is in good condition and absolutely readable.

If anyone wants, just PM me and it's yours.  Thanks.
