My students and I have adopted a team of soldiers that are stationed in Afghanistan. We would like to send them a box of books/magazines next month. Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone willing to donate anything. I can buddy a credit to help pay for postage.

Any great deals out there to help our soldiers who are away from their loved ones during this holiday season. PM me if you have anything. I am at work so cannot answer PM's until after 6 pm EST

Thanking you in advance for our soldiers overseas!

I have a name your deal (reasonable) on all my paperback on my shelf, so feel free to take a look.  This isn't included in boxes.

Since this is for a special cause, I'll offer 6-for-1 for anything except the cookbooks on my bookshelf.  It's mostly romance, so mostly of interest for women military, although there are few other books that might be of interest for guys, too.  Please PM me if you see anything you'd like to include.

Yea for you Wolf! - I have a big bunch of Don Pendletons and Mack Bolans that I'm willing to send out for just about any deal.  Also, let me know anything else you're interested in and we'll talk - would love to have these go overseas!

Would you want a bunch of Clancys, Dan Brown's and Thomas Harris (Red Dragon & Hannibal)?  I got a couple boxes from freecycle, and have duplicates of many of these.  They are in pretty good condition, too.  But they'll never move, even with the 3-for-1 MMP I'm offering.  It's probably a dozen books, whatever I can fit in whatever box I can find.

PM me with your mailing address.

I would do 5 for 1 on anything on my shelf.  Or whatever deal you come up with. I am a boxer too but my boxing is on hold for a bit but you can still see my shelf.

ETA: I have a lot of unpostables too which are mostly either stripped or just well loved. Not falling a part or anything just not up to my standards for posting.

Please feel free to browse my shelf and let me know anything you think would be good to send.  My twenty year old cousin has been in Baghdad since ten days after his high school graduation, so I would love to help all our service people in any way. Just pm me with anything you would like.
