Claimed. Thanks!


I want my basement shelf & area in front of the shelf back, so I'm going to try something strange.  I'm going to try to clear it in one big swoop!

For 40 credits, I'll send you 350 books. That's better than an 8:1 rate.  The books will all come off my current PBS shelf.   I have about 400 on my shelf, but I'm saying 350 so I can have some flexibility on what books fit into boxes and so I don't end with a completely empty shelf.   I don't think I could handle a completely empty shelf. :)

I AM still getting orders.   I have 3 books to mail out later this week.   These aren't just books that have been sitting around for ages--I rarely let books sit on my shelf more than a year, and most are much more recent than that.   I'm just tired of being patience (and want the space back).  There are some romances, but I have more mystery/thrillers and science fiction. There's literature, there's women's fiction, there's all sorts of things.  You can look--they are posted. :)

Anyone want to beef their shelf up a lot, or just get a good deal on a variety of books?  This way I only have to make one big trip to the PO rather than lots of little ones. :)  And think of the box that will arrive! (Probably boxes, actually).

My house is non-smoking.  There is a cat in one room at times (we foster for the humane society) but nowhere near my books or most of the house because I'm allergic.  I can't swear to the past history of the books.

Sorry, but no.

I firmly believe deals should help both sides--the sender gets a break on shipping, the receiver gets a break on credits.  10:1 is very much not a break on shipping for me.

If you want only some of my books, I can do these deals:

5 for 3 credits

10 for 4 credits

15 for 5 credits

20 for 6 credits

26 for 7 credits

35 for 8 credits


Yes, the my entire shelf is a much better per credit deal.   Shipping a large box of books is much cheaper than even smaller boxes of books, and I can be done with it all at once.  I'm willing to do smaller deals, but not at the same books per credit rate, and not for one credit.
