Does anyone ever post their GH books to PBS?  Ever?  Anyone??!


She seems to be an auto-keep author for so many folks, I'm trying to figure out if I'm wishing for the moon by WL'ing any of her books.    Has anyone ever received one of her books through the system?  I was hoping with the re-releases there would be some movement, but most WL'd books don't even have a last posted date.  (sigh)

I can't speak for anyone else, but she's been an auto-buy and auto-keep for over 40 years. I think she's one of those authors that generates a lot of reader loyalty, though she's also one of those authors one either loves or doesn't.  I buy new editions of my favorite Heyers but won't part with earlier editions.

I have a few Heyer novels on my WL, and 3 of them have last-posted dates within the last month.

I've posted several on here that I've found at the thrift store and FOL sales.  I just posted on last week. 

I personally don't read her but since I know her books go here then I get it if I see it cheap and postable.

I post them when I find them and I always buy them when I find them.  I probably have a few duplicates that could be posted now.  However, almost all copies of her books that I find have some yellowing to them.

I passed all of mine along to Kathleen last week - through the WL thread.  I collected them here & there; from the FOL sales and WL offers here.
