I want to buy this book for my sister. She read it a long time ago and would really like to have it now (she's quite ill and I think this would make her happy :). Does anyone know where I might be able to find it, please?

 

Thank you  :)

I'm not seeing copies posted for sale on other sites.  Have you tried your local public library?  I just checked my county's library catalog, and there are no copies here.  I see other people posting on line that they are looking for the book.

I can't find it on-line, either.  I'll check at my local used book store.

Thank you both! I live in a very small town now but have been looking for this book online.We do have a library but they are rather limited and I doubt they could find it for me to buy.

When do you need this book? Next week is our huge FOTL sale and I can look for it there and let you know.

Connie- Anytime is fine. Actually I'd like to be able to give it to her for Christmas if possible. Thanks so much!  :)

Sounds good, Vickie. Your book is on my list of books to look for, wish me luck! :) I usually make several trips to this FOTL so will look each time. They like to keep several books in their back storage room during the sale and bring them out at different times. Last year just minutes before they were going to close on the last day, a certain book caught my attention, think it was the cover. lol I went here to post it and it had 175 wishers!!!

Good luck. A very old publication so a library sale where the library or a patron cleaned out their old collection is likely the best bet!

Thanks Kath, it was worth a try.  :)

 

Melanie, I tend to agree with you!

Vickie, through my link above under "to borrow" on the right, there is an ebook version available, although it is currently showing as checked out.  Also under "to borrow," you can click on "physical, local copy" and enter your zip code on www.worldcat.org to see where you can check out a physical copy of the book.  When I enter my zip code, it shows 8 copies, although only 2 are in CA (and both hours and hours away).

Thanks sasssy, I did find 2 copies that are also hours away from me but I want to buy the book for my sister. She's really bad at returning things, lol.
