I had posted this over in the Random Acts of Kindness section but someone suggested that I should post it here to get some more responses:

I am posting this for my mothers' boyfriends disabled mom, in December her home went up in flames and she lost everything, the house burnt down to the ground and her pets didn't make it out. :( Luckily she suffered no physical injuries, but she is under extreme stress and anxiety and very depressed because of what happened. Since the fire she has been staying with us. My family is a very low income family and we are struggling as it is, I can't afford to buy any credits nor send out any books from my bookshelf but I would like to try to replace some books she lost in the fire with the few credits I have left, I only have 3 credits but was hoping I could get some really great deals on some books for her? I would greatly appreciate it :)


The types of books I am looking for, for her are supernatural, romance, mystery, suspense, and a certain christian speaker type books, she has a wide variety taste in books which is great. A few authors she likes are Kim Harrison, Joyce Meyer, James Patterson, Katie McAlister, Kerrelyn Sparks.  Thank you to anyone who reads this and god bless you all!  

 


**EDIT** - thank you to everyone for the well wishes and help! we greatly appreciate it! we are good on books for her for now! :)

If you think she'd like books by Marilyn Pappano, Jayne Ann Krentz, Diana Palmer, Beverly Barton, etc., send me the name/address, etc. and I can also send a small box of books.  None of the books are posted, but we are planning on going to town either tomorrow or Monday, so I could get the box mailed out at that time.

Danielle,

Does she like Kathy Reich (author of Bones) the TV show or Nicholas Sparkes or the Teens series of Left behind by Tim Lahaye? Also, I have tons of credit from the paperback bookstore and can get some romance books? Might be able to get some Sci fi paperbacks as they are special and I have some credits for them at the book store. I don't read Sci fi or regular romance, so would need auther and titles to look for. Just need an address as to where to send them. I do not have any of these listed, however Kathy Reich I have over half of her books in paperback and Nicholas Sparkes I can get most of his books in paperback.

Thanks,
Lisa

Danielle...first, I'm so sorry to hear about what happened!   I only have mainly kids books on my shelf right now, so I can't help with that.....but I gave you 2 of my credits.  Now you should have 5 to use!!  laugh   So far, it looks like everyone wants to give you books credit-free but in the chance someone wants credits...well, there you go!  Enjoy!

Danielle,

I am sorry for her loss and your strained circumstances as a result. Does she read small series romances?  I have a bunch and can send a box with no credits charged.  Just let me know and pm me the address.

Always happy to help a fellow DOSer. You are very sweet to help them out.

Look over my bookshelf to see if there is anything she would like. Have lots here that I can send but want to make sure we are not all duplicating the same books. We will keep her happy.

Send me your address. No credits necessary.

Danielle 

Please take a look at my bookshelf and see if there are any books she wants. I have some sturdy boxes so don't limit yourself to 2 or 3 if she wants more. 

No credits needed. 

Hope you find some.

Danielle,

I saw on your edit where you had all the books you needed for now, but I'm going to send you some credits to use for yourself or to get books for her if there's any she didn't get that's wanted. God bless you all and I'm sure many prayers have been said for her and your family. God certainly knows the circumstnaces.

Shirley
