It Takes FOREVER for this book to come up on your wish list! I know, I waited over 10 months before I was finally sent a copy. Now I am ready to turn it over....

Unfortunately, the copy that was sent to me from another PBS menber does have some slight water damage in the lower right front corner  (Shame on you Sally!!)  but it doesn't have any writing or highlights. The spine is uncreased and except for the slight water damage it is in good shape. the ISBN # is 0393317552 and as of right now 109 PBS members have this book on thier Wish List.

Here's the Deal! Since I shouldn't post this (because of the water damage) I'm offering it here for "FREE"- but I REALLY need to CLEAR OUT BOOKS. SO the first person that orders any three 3 books from my shelf can have this book as a bonus. I have 198 books listed so hopefully finding 3 books to go with this one won't be too hard.

Thanks Lynn

I couldn't find three books, but I did find two that I could order from you.  If you don't get a better offer and are willing to consider that let me know!

In the meantime, nice to meet my PBS almost same name twin!

Hi Lynne (too)

Give me an idea of what type of books your looking for, I might have something I could post for you to make up the 3rd. I have almost 200 on my shelf but over 500 more I should (but don't really want to ) post.

Lynn,  (oops - almost stuck an "e" on the end of your name because I'm so used to it LOL)

I'm a very eclectic reader, so it's a little tough to give you an idea what I like.  I also have about 1,000 books on my TBR, so part of the problem is I'm definitely NOT hurting for books.

I'd say take a look at my wishlist to get an idea of the type of books I like; then if you think you have something else that I might like send me a PM.

Just this week I sent that book out (I wasn't the one who sent the damaged one!!) after discovering it on my bookshelf.  I have NO idea how it got there, who put it there, who even wanted it there.  What is the big fascination with this book?  Not my style at all...I think I yawned as I was leafing through it!!

9 Hardy Boys on my shelf at 3/1.

I also have about about a dozen Sue Grafton audio cassettes.  Check my shelf...thanks, Cindy
