My best friend, Erin, moved back home to Minnesota from Florida about a month and a half ago, when she was preparing to move she had a garage sale to sell most of her things because she decided she was shipping some of her important items (including her books) and flying home since it was cheaper. When she packed all of her books away her aunt accidently sold all of them in the garage sale not knowing Erin wanted to keep them and ship them home. So she lost all of her books :( . There is a library where she lives now, but she doesn't have the time to check out/return books since she works 2 jobs (one full time and another part time) and she doesn't want to be stuck with late fees.

I've managed to give her a few books already but have been trying also to get together a big box full of books for her as a surprise to get her bookshelf full again so she has books to read.

I was wondering if anyone could make me some really good deals on Harlequin/Silhouette books like maybe a 1 credit for 5 books or maybe even 6 books deals? (she's a romance and young adult/teen fan like me). I don't have that many credits either. I know the specific books she's looking for since I've added them to my reminder list.

I know this is asking a lot, but it would greatly help me out so so much.

Also a BIG thank you to everyone who does read this even if you're unable to help me out! :)

NOTE EDIT:

She reads pretty much anything from the Harlequin/Silhouette books, but her favorites are Silhouette Nocturne, Harlequin Blaze, Harlequin Historical, and Harlequin Presents. I managed to create a Reminder List of the Harlequin/Silhouette books I'm trying to get for her that I know she'll like to read and that she's talked about wanting to read. It's a long list, but I'm trying to keep it organized and anyway I don't plan on getting all those books for her at once lol.The link for the reminder list is below. Honestly I'm sure there are tons of other books she'd like to read that I don't have listed so any would help out, I'd prefer to get her Harlequin books that were published anytime after 2006, I'm not looking for any that were published before that. Thanks!

Dani, have you checked the Book Bazaar or the Romance Forum? I don't read romance novels but have a dear friend who does & I often find gr8 deals on them in those 2 forums... anything from 5/1 to 12/1.

Danielle,

If you want to list a couple of the books she really wants, I will look for some. I buy books often from a thrift shop for a quarter and would be willing to send as many as I find for 1 credit. I don't usually read that genre, so I don't really know what is a "good find". We also have a lot of Harlequin books at work in the "free to take" box. Would love to help out

I need to move these books. Please take a look at my shelf.  Will do bulk orders if you find several you like.

Debbie- I've been keeping an eye on the Book Bazaar and have checked out some peoples shelves and ordered some already for her. That's why I'm low on credits lol Thanks for letting me know though, I appreciate it! :)

Leah- She reads pretty much anything from the Harlequin/Silhouette books, but her favorites are Silhouette Nocturne, Harlequin Blaze, Harlequin Historical, and Harlequin Presents. I managed to create a Reminder List of the Harlequin/Silhouette books I'm trying to get for her that I know she'll like to read and that she's talked about wanting to read. The link for the reminder list is in my first post above. Honestly I'm sure there are tons of other books she'd like to read that I don't have listed so any would help out, I'd prefer to get her Harlequin books that were published anytime after 2006, I'm not looking for any that were published before that. Thanks!

Cindy- I have to head out soon so I'll check out your shelf this evening when I'm able to get back on and pm you. Thanks!

To the people who have sent me a PM- Like I told Cindy I have to head out so I'll check out your shelves this evening and PM you back tonight, thank you!

Danielle, the link in your first post isn't working.

I read mostly Harlequin & Silhouette;  I just haven't gotten around to organizing and posting them to my bookshelf.  But I'll see what books I can find for your friend Erin. Will be in touch.
