Hi.  I just recently found 2 books at a Goodwill store & would love to get the rest in the series.  It is a series about Thomas the Tank Engine.  They are hardcover, but very thin books (so they aren't heavy).  They are books in the Thomas & Friends Book Club & are published by Scholastic.  They are 2-books-in-1.  If you have any of these & could give me a deal, I (& my 2 sons) would greatly appreciate it.  :-)

Here is a sample of what the books look like . . . http://www.paperbackswap.com/Old-Faithful-Peter-Rev-Wilbert-Awdry/book/0439338514/

Hereis my reminder list which includes the books I need.  http://www.paperbackswap.com/members/my_lists/reminder_list.php

I'll keep an eye out locally as I've seen them occasionally - my daughter had some of those but I think they all got donated when we moved. I'll check her shelves though!

I don't know if you're interested, but you might try searching on ebay to see if you can find any of these books.  They are occasionally listed.  These books are originally from Scholastic's "Thomas and Friends" book club.  I don't know if they still offer this program.  My son was in it when he was younger, but that was several years ago.  Hope this info helps you.

Thanks, Myra for the suggestion.  I'm kind of leary buying on ebay.  I don't like their payment system, but it is a great suggestion since I did see some of them on there.  :-D
