Can someone explain how "available books" forum works.  I'm new, so any insight would be appreciated.

Basically, if someone's done reading a book that others on the forum might be interested in, they can post it here to offer it to one of their fellow H/Fers first.  If no one claims it, the person usually just posts the book to their bookshelf to be made available to the rest of PBS.

I have an extra copy of My Lord John by Georgette Heyer, isbn 9781402213533.  I forgot to cancel it on my wl when I ordered from either bn.com or bookcloseouts.com (can't 'member, got both boxes on the same day.)  It happened with two books, actually!!

Anyhoo, I am going to the post office either tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday so let me know this evening if you would like it posted to you!  :)

I have:


The Rose Labyrinth :: Titania Hardie

 

It's listed as plain 'ole fiction on the book, but it has hints of history with a smidge of paranormal/fantasy thrown in.  I will offer here for 24 hours, then post it after that. 


ETA - Please PM me if you are interested in the book.

I have an extra copy, brand new, of The Red Badge of Courage and Four Stories, by Stephen Crane.  I know several have chosen this for the 2010 challenge.  I will post it to my bookshelf  where you may order directly.
