One of my favorite parts of PBS is wrapping books to send out.

I always wrap in plastic first and use recycled packaging materials. Often I get positive feedback on my packaging.

I'm upping the difficulty for myself (and also de-cluttering) by offering this deal so I will be sending out books of all shapes and sizes at once:

2 for 1 credit, 6 for 2, or 10 for 3 on:

  • books posted before October 2009
  • any unpostable, listed here (link to a google spreadsheet web page)
  • books posted on 7 & 9 December 2009         I posted lots of Nancy Drew Files, Sleepover friends, Gymnasts, Sweet Valley on 9 Dec.

 ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~

 Baby Sitters Club Books #1-49. About half are postable. The unpostables are readable but some are lovingly held together by lots of tape, or have some minor stains. Vintage paperbacks bought with original cover art,  bought as they came out. No writing in any of them. Not interested in breaking up the set at this point.

Asking 8 credits for the lot.

That's slightly better than 3/1 for just the postables with lots of freebies, or slightly better than 6 for 1 for the lot.

^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~^-^ ~   ^-^ ~  ^-^ ~   ^-^ ~

Sweet Valley Twins #1-52. Six of 52 are unpostable, but barely. Vintage paperbacks with original cover art. No writing. Not interested in breaking up the set at this point.

Asking 10 credits for this lot.
