I'm kinda the same as Kelsey, all my hardbacks are once read and in great condition.  And I have 5 for 3 on everything, I can be more specific on each book if you want to ask about them.  I think my shelf pretty much falls in the mystery/thriller popular fiction genres.  I also have a few series on my shelf.......Patterson, Lescroart, Crais, Burke...     Thanks for looking!

The following four are audiobooks (cassettes), brand new, the boxes have never been opened, wrapped in their original plastic.

Best of NPR's Lost and Found Sound Vol. 1 :: Highbridge, Davia Nelson, Jay Allison

Leap of Faith :: Gordon Cooper

The Privilege of Youth : A Teenager's Story of Longing for Acceptance and Friendship :: Dave Pelzer

Three Nights in August : Strategy, Heartbreak, and Joy Inside the Mind of a Manager :: Buzz Bissinger

 

I hesitate to call books in brand new condition because I was a little disappointed in a couple I received last year that were advertised as "new condition" but had, what I consider, obvious shelfware. The following are in excellent condition but I notice some slight wear at the corners:

The Witness :: Dee Henderson

The Bookseller's Daughter :: Pam Rosenthal

The Bookshop :: Penelope Fitzgerald

The Masters : Golf, Money, and Power in Augusta, Georgia :: Curt Sampson

I have a question for anyone who has ordered any books due to this forum.

Have you been disappointed because the book was not well-represented? Was  it not  in giftable condition, or ar least as described by the particular member? I would  honestly like to know if this works, or not.

I would also like  to know if you have been pleased? Thanks,

Magic, I did this last year and got several WONDERFUL giftable books.  Usually, people are honest about this sort of thing on pbs.
