Hi, All I can find deal-wise is romance and kids books. Any deals on classics? Plays by Shakespeare, Homer, books by the Brontes or Dickens, etc. The kind of books "everyone needs to read!"?

I have "The Celebrated Jumping Frog, and Other Stories" by Mark Twain, and "The Caine Mutiny" by Herman Wouk on my bookshelf.  I had several others but they didn't last long.  These two books are nice looking hardbacks, and are in like new condition.  They don't have dust covers.  They have nice looking gold lettering.

PM me if you are interested in these books.

The books you mention usually go pretty fast. I currently have Black Beauty and Hamlet on my shelf, and a copy of The Age of Reason in my unpostables.

My continuing special offer is three for one on all books (except travel guides), plus add an unpostable.

thanks all, I wasn't meaning to be too specific, I was just using those few names as examples. It looks like quite a few of you do have "classics" on your deals! (I just couldn't find any before) Feel free to PM me as well, if you're having a deal and you have some classics :) Thanks!

If Steinbeck's East of Eden and Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl:  The Definitive Edition interest you, I'll send both for one credit.  Or, one of those plus another from my shelf for one credit.
