Hi, I am trying to clear out my shelf. I am also having a yard sale this Friday and Saturday. Anything that doesn't get taken will be removed from my bookshelf and sold in the yard sale. I am joining the Peace Corps in a little less than two months so the purge is on. Please take a look and see if there's anything you like. Also, list alternates and post what you want here. Cross-posted to Love and Romance forum. Will take by order of pm. Good mix of romance, fiction, and non-fiction. Will be adding more as the day goes on. Again, I am doing a 5 for 1 through Wednesday night at 11:59 pm. Please take a look at my profile for unpostables, however many you want. Post your order here and pm me. Thanks!

Okay, I've got JoAnne, Ada, Barbara, Kristin, Donna, Susan, and Laurie.

Cat, I will pm you about the situation because you didn't pm me and I didn't see your post until now.

I may end this deal earlier than planned. The postage is getting prohibitive.
