Just as I was finishing Unbroken, I spilled a glass of coke on the table. On a damage scale of 1 - 10, 10 being completely damaged and 1 being not at all damaged, I'd give the book a 2. There is virtually no warping of the pages from water damage. When you close the book, the edge of the pages are stained at the top and along the upper edge. The book cover is fine - this is a hardback. I bought the book from the bookstore so I am the one and only owner. I don't feel comfortable posting the book and sending it to some unsuspecting reader so I thought I would come to my favorite people at my favorite forum and offer the book. It is still in very good shape and I think it is well worth the credit. If anyone is interested, at last look there are 1641 people wishing for this book, I will send it to you for one credit.


Unbroken has been claimed. Thanks.

Hey Bruce!  This is so nice of you, we don't have a Dec. Books Available thread yet.   So do you want to change your subject line to that and we can build on this offering?
