I can't believe we didn't have this thread this month!  I guess we were all just too busy shopping for our Secret Santas! I finished my annual year-end TBR purge and have the following books available. Minimum of two required and can be combined with books on my Bookshelf.  See my post in WL Multiplies for the rest of my available WL books.

Murder Most Royal (Tudor Saga, Bk 5) by Jean Plaidy (2 wishers)
His Last Duchess by Gabrielle Kimm (2 wishers)

 I also have an ARC of Outlaw by Angus Donald that I would like 1 credit for.

Hee, Cathy. I actually do want to read that book, but probably not in that condition.

I have a hardback of "The Scarlet Lion" by Elizabeth Chadwick.  PM me by Thursday night, 6pm PST if interested.

@ Mimi, I'd send it on to you, but I doubt I'd put it back together again in readable form. Thankfully the parts that fell out did so after I'd read those sections.


@Becky, yes I've had a couple of huge HBs that gave me concern over postage expense.

Cathy, my copy of Game of Thrones, trade paper purchased new, came apart in exactly that manner on the second reading.  Each section as I read it.  I've considered attempting repair by heating wtih an iron, but I haven't ever tried the method, and haven't gotten around to it.

Sharla, that should not happen with a new book. I'd be tempted to ask for my money back.
