Our Dollar Tree has a good selection of coloring books - have you checked there? You'd probably get them cheaper than paying someone shipping to send them to you. I stocked up around Christmas. :)

If you don't have a Dollar Tree - let me know. I'll pick you some up and send them to you, my treat. :)

Unfortunately, as I discovered awhile back, coloring books aren't postable here. I had a whole bunch of nice Dover ones. I was able to work out a deal as a freebie with an order from my shelf or something like that, but I couldn't post them directly. Just FYI... bummer, huh?

If you find something on my shelf to order I will send you some coloring books we are through with.

Make certain to PM me to remind me though.

The dover coloring books I believe fall into a grey area as they are also educational books. I would check to see if any of the titles that you have are wishlisted. I know that I am always on the lookout for dover, bellephron and other high quality coloring type books.

Why aren't they postable? If puzzle books can be posted (and they can), why not coloring books?

Because Many people can use the arguement that is is acceptable to send a coloured in book as this is a used book trading swap site. R and R wantee to stay out of the postable/unpostable arguement.

I can say that pewople do post them and people do request them.

It is totally on you and the person sending to fix any issues.

I have gotten some great books I have gotten some real duds.

 At least that is what I understand.
