Unpostables:  One FREE with each order from my shelf; Paperbacks unless noted otherwise.

Postmortem - Patricia Cornwell - spine is starting to separate, but all pages still intact, clean copy

Marriage In Name Only - Doreen Owens Malek - I think this could be postable, but it has heavy spine creasing and the front cover is bent from the top to bottom - don't want someone to pay a credit for it.

The Impossible Alliance - Candace Irvin - Small chew mark from my rabbit on the top of the back cover and edge of the top back binding.

Virgins - Caryl Rivers - Staining on bottom of pages (does not go into the text, so perfectly readable), tear in bottom binding (about an inch and a half), someone's name is written on the first page when you open the book and there is also a company stamp on this page.

Where Are The Children - Mary Higgins Clark - spine separating, one page has completely separated from the spine, creasing on cover and spine, but still readable and all pages are accounted for!

Wild West Wife - Susan Mallery - I think my rabbit wanted this one, too.  There is lots of chewing on the top binding (about an inch and a half from top to bottom), all pages intact and readable, spine is still intact with no separation, it looks to be in good condition other than the chewing.

Winter Moon - Dean Koontz - Tear on bottom outside binding (bottom to top) about an inch and a half, well worn copy, lots of creasing, spine looks okay, all pages intact and readable

Hornet's Nest - Patricia Cornwell - Water damage last 50-75 pages, still perfectly readable and intact otherwise

Reader's Digest Condensed Book -  Includes Fatal Cure by Robin Cook, The Wrong House by Carol McD. Wallace, Red Ink by Greg Dinallo and Having Our Say by Sarah & A. Elizabeth Delany with Amy Hill Hearth (hardcover, has some wear, but looks very good, all pages intact, spine is good, just can't post because it's condensed - no ISBN)

Reader's Digest Select Editions - Black Notice by Patricia Cornwell, Eddie's Bastard by William Kowalski, Boundary Waters by William Kent Krueger and The Innocents Within by Robert Daley (hardcover, small price sticker mark at top of dust jacket, excellent condiiton, just no ISBN to post a condensed book)

I have the following upostables:

The Secret Life of Bees
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
ISBN-13: 9780142001745
ISBN-10: 0142001740

back cover and maybe the last thirty pages kind of wavy at the bottom looks like humidity since I see no water mark or stain

Why Is Murder On The Menu, Anyway? (Harlequin Next)  [2 wishing]
Author: Stevi Mittman
ISBN-13: 9780373881246
ISBN-10: 037388124X  

front cover a tiny bit rough along edge, a few wavy pages in the begining probably from humidity since I see no water mark or stain

Whose Number Is Up, Anyway? (Harlequin Next)
Author: Stevi Mittman
ISBN-13: 9780373881390
ISBN-10: 0373881398

a few small unidentified stains (I suspect something dripped onto pages possibly, tea ) pages 13-16 and along the edge of the next few pages after

A Taste of Darkness
Author: Nina Bangs
ISBN-13: 9780843956344
ISBN-10: 0843956348

last half of the book pages along the edge look wavy, like maybe someone had a wet thumb then perused through the back of the book, or possibly the book got a bit wet as the same edge of the back cover is as well.

Dark Destiny (Carpathians (Dark), Bk 13)
Author: Christine Feehan
ISBN-13: 9780843950502
ISBN-10: 0843950501

Fairly worn, cover looks like it might come apart along the top back of spine.  All pages and cover is intact, but definitely has seen better days.

Any pic one free with an order off my shelf.  (or make me a deal I'm easy lol)


I have on my shelf another Stevi Mittman book, (in great condition)

What Goes With Blood Red, Anyway? (Harlequin Next)
Author: Stevi Mittman
ISBN-13: 9780373881048
ISBN-10: 0373881045

If you order it and want the other two books I'll take all three for one credit.
