Not a paranormal topic, but I'm posting here because this is the community where I spend the most time.

I'm ordering some extra books for two high school English teachers (for kids who can't afford to buy them).  I have plenty of credits, but the system won't allow me to order multiple copies of the same book.

I need two people to order a book for me and have it sent to my address. I'll transfer the credit to you immediately.

If you could post your willingness to help in this thread, then we can take it to PMs. But everyone can see when I've got two responses, so I won't impose on more people than necessary.

One caveat - used copies of these books frequently have underlining or highlighting. I know that's against PBS rules for posting, but I've found it best to double check - either a reminder PM to the sender right after placing the order or really checking the book over upon arrival. Here's some possible language for the PM.

I'm ordering this book on behalf of an English teacher for students who cannot afford to purchase copies.  Before sending, please double check that there is no writing or highlighting and that the book is in good enough shape to survive weeks of class use, teenagers, and backpacks.  (Some older copies might be a bit fragile for this purpose.) Thank you!
