I have 9 of the Left Behind series in hardback.  I bought new when they came out and they have only been read once.  See my shelf for titles.  I love books and treat them gently.

I also have a copy of Debbie Macomber's Change of Habit . Pristine condition.

The Key by Debra White Smith, lovely smaller hardback. Would make a sweet girlfriend gift.

Patricia by Grace Livingston Hill, Just Walk Across the Room by Bil Hybels, Janet Evanovich's Ten Big Ones.

If you don't mind Diet books: Perfect Weight America has never been opened, Also have Stop the Insanity by Susan Powter and My Big Fat Greek Diet by Nick Yphantides MD.

All of these were bought new by me except Ten Big Ones

All of the above are on my shelf,  I also have a pristine copy of Max Lucado's Cosmic Christmas that I was waiting to post until closer to Christmas.  If you are interested, I will gladly go ahead and post.

If you order hardbacks for gifts, lmk and I will be sure to ship in boxes instead of just wrapping.

Thanks!

I have 2 beautiful books.  1 is Grandparent's Memories a Keepsake Book.  This is a book for the grandparents to fill in to give to their granchild.  All about when they married, what it was like when they were growing up, their family tree, etc.  I bought it for my mom to fill out for my son and she was so sick she was unable to do it and passed away.  I wish that I had bought it sooner because I would love to read it now.

I also have, Favorite Tales from Grimm A Treasured Collection.  This book is pretty.  It has gold leafing on the pages.  It includes the stories The Frog Prince, Mother Holle, The Elves and The Shoemaker, Sleeping Beauty, The Fisherman and His Wife, Little Red Riding Hood, Spindle Shuttle and Needle, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White, The Wolf and The Seven Kids, The Golden Goose, Rapunzel, and The Bremen Town Musicians.

I have a book I bought at a Southern Living Home Party. It's brand new!  It's a school memory scrapbook  type book that has a page for each grade K-8th, to add pics and information Teacher info, Classmates, Feild Trip and Special Parties. It has a envelope in back for report cards, etc. Great Keepsake for your child's school records.
