So here's the deal.  Daughter just announced that she is coming home for Christmas -- and bringing Boyfriend with her.  I have been using her bedroom for book storage for a year.  Now I have less than two months to find a path to her bed! 

Here is my list of Unpostables, and what is wrong with them.  I will gladly add one or two to any book order from my bookshelf.  If you have a kid in college, I will gladly make a 2-for-1 deal.  If you have two kids in college, I'll make a 3-for-1 deal.  If you have three or more kids in college, I will bow down and worship you!

My Unpostables.  Will include with any book from my bookshelf.

  • Master of Falconhurst (cover taped on. Book looks beat.  Then again, every copy I've ever seen from this series looks beat)
  • The BlackArrow by Robert Lewis Stevenson (hardback, tanned pages)
  • Merryvale Girls in the Country (hardback, just generally an old,used book)
  • Extra Kill by Dell Shannon (slightly tanned, well-used paperback)
  • One Foot in Heaven by Hartzell Spence (hardback, just generally an old, used book)
  • Roget's College Thesaurus (well-used paperback)
  • Deepwater by Matthew Jones (great condition. Advance Uncorrected Bound Galleys)
  • Here is Your War by Ernie Pyle (very beat up, but thought a veteran might like it)
  • Trapped in the Iceby RugthHarden (kids book. Cover has wear/tears, but thought someone might be interested in it)
  • The Brady Bunch #3 Count Up To Blast-Down by William Johnston (beat-up cover)
  • The Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett (cover held on with tape)
  • Riverwind the Plainsman by Thompson & Carter (a Dragon Lance book. Cover is taped together)
  • The Peter Prescription by Dr. Lawrence Peter (can't find an ISBN number, from 1972)
  • Wind of Promise by Dorothy Garlock (pages are starting to fall out, as is the lady's chest on the front cover)
  • Fit for Life by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond (nothing wrong with it, too many copies posted & I want to get rid of it)

No pets except fish and teenage boys.  No smoking.
