Hello fellow community members!

My housesitter watered my plants a little too zealously while I was gone and now all books on one shelf have slight water damage and warped pages.

I have 5 great writing guides - ranging from the traditional grammar handbook to the more creative approach to language and writing - and I'm willing to send them all off together along with ANY ONE BOOK from my regular bookshelf in exchange for 2 credits! I'm also more than happy to bargain a bit on these conditions.

PM me and I'll give you the list of books! Please make sure to check out my eclectic collection of bookshelf goodies, too.

Thanks a million!

Eva

Eva    You better check because if the books have any water damage they don't meet PBS guidelines and I don't think that you can request credits for them.  I may be wrong in which case I'm sure someone will correct me.  :-)

Eva,

All  you would have to do is change  the credit request to 1 credit (for a book on  your shelf), since all the water-damaged books would have  to be free. Gee, that's a shame. I hate to see good books ruined. But I'm sure they're in  good reading condtion and would make a good deal.

Perhaps you could  split your free books up in your offer, as long as you are not asking for credits for them over and above what you would get for any books on  your shelf.
