I have The Island by Victoria Hislop. It's about a Leper colony in Greece from the mid-30s to its ending in 1957.

Taken!

Wow Kathy! Are you cleaning out the bookshelves?!  I've been meaning to request The World, the Flesh and the Devil for ages. Did you read it and was it any good?

By the way...Your house sounds like mine. Smoke, 2 dogs, 2 cats, dust...an allergy prone person's worst nightmare. LOL!

Space is forcing me to make some more tough decisions. I have 4 brand new trade-size paperbacks in the Flashman series by George MacDonald Fraser. I would love to send them to one person. If one person is interested, I'll send 4 books for 3 credits.

I'm not sure about the reading order, except that Flashman is first:

Flashman

Royal Flash

Flashman and the Redskins

Flashman and the Angel of the Lord

Per the Flashman Society:

<<I'm not sure about the reading order, except that Flashman is first:

Flashman -- Book 1

Royal Flash -- Book 2

Flashman and the Redskins -- Book 7

Flashman and the Angel of the Lord -- Book 10>>

Cheers,

Catt

I finished Plain Jane by Laurien Gardner last night. Mediocre, is my reaction. But 33 people are wishing for it. So I'd like to offer it here first. I have ISBN 0515141550. Read once. Light spine creases.
