Time to tell us all about your oldest book on your shelf deals.  If you have books that you posted from July 2006 and earlier and would like to offer them in a deal, please post here.  All copy and paste the book titles so people will easily see what your oldest books are.

Here's my deal:

2 for 1 -- Order one of my old books and take another book off my shelf for free.

2 for 1 if you order a book posted longer than a year (there are about 60 of those).  To find the oldest books, sort my shelf on date, ascending.  Order the older book, PM  me your freebie.  This deal includes my entire shelf, 2 children's books count as one regular book for the deal (ie. order one older book and two children's freebies).

Shelf is mostly mystery, sci-fi, fantasy and childrens with a smattering of other categories.

Thanks for looking! :)

I wonder if in August we should rename this topic.  Before I donated several of my books listed here to my department's bookswap box , I started a topic in the Bazaar, letting people know they had a last shot at the books.  I'd had no response in this topic, but someone ordered a couple of books from the last chance posting.

I wonder if people see"Oldest Books on Your Shelf" & think of old, mildewed, yellowed books.  Maybe "Deals on Books Longest on Your Shelf?"  Or something less awkwardly phrased.

I've had the hardcover version of Tami Hoag's Dark Horse listed since November '06.  I'm tired of looking at it!  Will send out free with any order from my shelf.
