Ok so lets all list our giftable books here.  Those that can and are willing to do gift wrapping on them too please notate that on your post!  Books must be in new condition and completely giftable so that the recipient cannot tell the difference between that book and a book on a store shelf.  Books must be carefully shipped to prevent any maiming by the USPS.  If you are already running specials and wish to include your giftable books in the special please post that as well.

Post em guys and lets check some gifts off our list!

I have these  Brand New, Factory Sealed Audio Cassette Books on tape:

Born Free, by Joy Adamson   (Nice true story of Joy Adamson and her love for for her Lioness, Elsa and Joys work with Lions in Kenya. Read by Virginia McKenna who starred in the film Born Free,  2 hours, nice photo of Joy and Elsa on cover

Book of Virtues #2 by William Bennett, About Classic Children's Books

Booth by David M Robertson, about John Wilkes Booth who assasinated Abraham Lincoln

Old Friends by Tracy Kidder,  A tender true story of growing older - about 2 men in a retirement home.

Living Water, for those who thirst, Christian Tyndale Audio book- 60 uplifting encounters with God's Word, choose a topic for the day and listen for a few minutes or immerse yourself in the full three hour experieince. (New Living Translation of the Bible)

The Stones Are Hatching- by Geraldine McCaughrean, British children's fantasy- A creature of monstrous proportions and unimaginable evil, the Stoor Worm must be destroyed. Already its murderous hatchlings are bringing terror and destruction to every corner of Britain. And a trio- A Fool, a Maiden, and a Horse is desperately trying to convince one quite ordinary boy that he alone can save the world.  A gripping tale of perilous adventure is filled with unforgettable scenes of terror, heroism, and treachery in the timeless fight between good and evil.   5 hours, 45 minutes, 4 cassettes.

I Took A Lickin' and Kept on Tickin' and Know I Believe in Miracles by Lewis Grizzard, Random House, When Lewis Grizzard went in for his latest heart surgery, he assumed it would be another ordinary, humdrum hospital nightmare. Little did he dream that while on the operating table, his heart would stop. His doctors said his chances of survival were nil. He even saw the glowing white light at the end of the tunnel. For Lewis- just his luck- it turned out to be a Kmart tire sale. This book is the extraordinary journey that took America's most popular humorist to the Den of Bloodsuckers (otherwise known to most normal people as hospital orderlies) and to the brink of death- and back again. In great detail- ranging from the horrendous and painful to the hilarious and heartwarming- we see what its like to come as near as a man can come to dying.

Kids single audio tape factory sealed:  Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney.  Plain cassette and clear case with no photos or inserts- from the popular kids book of the same name.

I would wrap with Christmas paper and send to whoever you want if you let me know in an e-mail or PM.
