I just cleaned out my boy's room and had them pick out the books they are not likely to ever read again. Most of what I got was Goosebump series and Bionicle series books. I quickly posted them but now I am wondering; Does anyone actually order these series books?

I do!  My son loves Goosebumps books, and I have at least one on my WL that has been there for months.  I have another one that I just tried to order, and it is on the 2nd person...the first request sat for 5 days and was never accepted, and now it's on the 3rd day of the next person and is still "waiting for member".  I will check your shelf and see if the one my son currently wants is on there- if it is, I'll cancel the current order, and order directly from you!

Edit, darn, it's not- but when my son is home tomorrow, I'll have him look at what you have listed and see if there are any he wants.

Oh, also, I think you might have better luck by offering a deal on these books in the Book Bazaar, and also post in the Deals thread in the Children's Books forum.  I had a lot of my son's Bionicle books that I got rid of by offering them 3/1.

I always figure that it doesn't hurt to post the books.  To advertise that you have books from those series, you can post them on the Bizarre & Childrens/YA group forumns.  Also within a certain time frame (a month maybe) if they don't sell, offer them for a deal (3-for-1 or 4-for-1).  You can post that on the Bizarre forumn as well.  My son loves the Bionicle series, but I only get them when they are a 4-for-1 deal.

I just ordered some Goosebump books. I did get a two for one deal and unpostables though, and likely would look for two for one deals in the future. My son doesn't care which ones he gets so I have the ability to look for a deal.
