More books added to my shelf today, check them out.

I just added 11 more books to my shelf, one is a wish list hold until the member decides to take it, but the others are all available to go to new homes.

New books added this morning...take a look!!

I'm trying to fill up my map of states that I have sent books to and I still need the following states:

Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, Nevada, Utah, Kansas, Nebraska, Mississippi, Virginia, Alaska and Hawaii. I've sent LOTS of books to states not mentioned, especially to those east of the Mississippi, but I know there have got to be readers in the states I don't have yet. I've even sent books to Puerto Rico and somewhere in the Middle East to a Marine stationed there.

So come on all you faithful PBS readers west of the Mississippi. Check out my shelf and see if there's something you'd like to order.

This deal will be good through the month of March. All my books are in good condition and come from a smoke- free home, but I do have cats and they sometimes sniff the books and have even been known to curl up on a couple from time to time.

Currently reading: The Winner by David Baldacci

Just finished: Hurricane Bay by Heather Graham & The Real Deal by Fern Michaels & All Through The Night by Mary Higgins Clark & Looking For Peyton Place by Barbara Delinsky

I forgot to mention..  Please post here so people know what been chosen and pm me, too.

Please tell me what state you're in so I can cross them off my list!!

Please scroll down to later post and see the unpostables I have. Free to anyone requesting one with an order from my shelf along with their freebie , 3 for 1 deal!!

Washington has been crossed off the list. I'd love to hear from the other states, too. Offer is good through March.

I've got two unpostables that will be free to whoever requests them.

McNally's Caper by Lawrence Sanders...there's some slight water rippled pages the first of the book, [it got wet fishing!!] but still very readable. This is a paperback.

Wishes by Jude Deveraux .... a hardback copy that is from a library sale. It has the library stamp in the front and on the spine and on the edges of the pages.

I just added 3 more unpostable books...pick any of the unpostables when you order 1 from my shelf along with your freebie. That 3 for 1 credit!!

McNally's Chance by Lawrence Sanders...hardback from a library sale. Library ID on spine and stamp on edges of the pages.

Acts Of Love by Judith Michael ...hardback from library sale. Same as above book.

City Of Gold by Len Deighton... hardback from library sale. Same as above book. 

All the hardbacks have their dust jackets and are in good shape other than the library ID marks.

Hey Shirley, Just an idea, go to member directory and Put in Alaska for instance.   See which members are in Alaska, Pm them the 1st post above and see if you get any interest.   It might work.  Just  an idea.   Let me know if it does.

Heather,

Your suggestion sounded like a good idea...I went to directory, there's 99 listed members in Alaska. Are you suggesting I send the pm to everyone of them or just pick one and see what happens? Also how do you suggest sending the above post. I'm not into all this computer stuff, would I have to rewrite the post in the pm and would that in a sense be an invasion of these people's privacy, kind of like junk mail that no one wants to receive?

Well highlight your post, then  right click your mouse and choose, COPY it.  Then you can right click and PASTE whatever you wrote on to a PM or any blank field .   I wouldnt suggest you pm everyone.    I would  maybe choose someone who is a boxer, since they might be more likely want to look at your bookshelf.   Maybe choose a few people who have similiar book interests.   Your POSt here on the Forum seems to work well too.  Another suggestion is ask other here who they know and have trade with so far from the states you need.   One more suggestion.  Try Randomn acts of Kindness and see if anyone there will order from you that you need on your list.  I would have traded if you needed my state.   I hope you are having so much fun.  I will look to see who I had from AK and HI.

Thanks for all your help. I've used your suggestion and contacted Alaska and Hawaii. We'll see what happens! If it works what a great idea!! Check back to see the results.

I'm waiting to hear from Hawaii, Alaska and Montana, to see if they order books. How about the other states? I still need Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota, Nevada, Utah, Kansas, Nebraska and Virginia. The deal is good through March.

Montana Sky by Nora Roberts has been selected, just not ordered yet, so it's no longer available, but I can't delete it or she won't be able to order it.

Thanks Shirley!  I'm in the Aloha State (Hawaii!) and I just ordered "Pop Goes the Weasel" (Patterson).

For my freebie, could I get Mary Mary (Patterson).

And I think I'll take you up on that unpostable, Acts Of Love by Judith Michael

Thanks for the deal, I'm glad to help you fill your map :-)

This has been so much fun...met people from Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Washington, Mississippi and Virginia.  I still have 8 states to go. Check out my shelf. I added some more books today. I'd love to cover every state by the end of March.

Be sure to check my post on this thread that has my unpostables on it. Be glad to send oneof the ones that are left with any order. That's a 3 for 1 deal for those.
