I have done a major purge of my audiobook collection and have decided to get rid of the following list.  Before I list these individually on my shelf I wanted to offer them to those other audiophiles who may, like myself, want multiple audiobooks from one author/series or go through audios quickly and want to stock up. 

Most are Young Adult and Fantasy oriented, as those are 2 of my favorite genres and much listening is done in my car shared with my children, but there are some other genres and some are adult books.

I would prefer to keep audios from the same series together if possible but will consider sending them separately if no one wants all from one author.  Unfortunately, all are not the same format as I listen to both cassettes and CDs and acquired some series in mixed formats so that may make a difference to some if you don't have the abilty to play both cassettes and CDs.  For shipping purposes I'd also prefer to send more than 1 title to a person, if possible, and will consider deals on larger quantities sent in one package.  I'll also list some unpostables (with explantion of why they are unpostable) at the end that will be available with an order.

Please send me a PM with what you are interested in and we'll see if we can work out the details.

UNPOSTABLE: These are all "personal copies", meaning they are not the originals but copies I made for my personal use so therefore not postable.  There is nothing wrong with them as far as quality.  To the best of my knowledge, as with the other audios, all played fine last time I played them. One free with each audio ordered.
