In an attempt to make my reading list seem a little more grown up, I'm looking for deals on those "high school reading list" sorts of books. I've read things like The Great Gatsby, Brave New World, To Kill a Mockingbird, and so forth...looking for similar things!

Thanks :D

I have a few of the older pocket books. Only one would be postable and even then it is borderline. All pages are intact but the covers are worn. A couple have damage around the binding. Seems like there were a couple more somewhere, I will have to go look.

Great Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

The Story of My Life by Helen Keller

All About Men by Joseph H Peck M.D.
