Hey swappers!

I'm currently looking for a deal of any kind on Classics such as Moby Dick, 1984, Frankenstein, Treasure Island, Jane Eyre, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the Scarlet Letter, Gullivers Travels and similar books. I don't need any Jack London, Little Women, Chaucer, Shakespeare, and I have Dogsong by Paulsen, Animal Farm by Orwell and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. But I'm looking to read and reread more of the classics that I blew through in junior and high school (and/or didn't read at all). I think I will have a better appreciation for them these days (and many years out of school!).

I'm also looking for a deal on Bentley Little (horror) books. If you have a classic and one of those, all the better!

3 -1 deals would be fantastic, but 2-1 is cool too. Thanks!

ETA: Sorry for the goofy subject line. It's supposed to be "Looking for deal on Classics and Bentley Little if possible".  That's what I get for staying up so late...

Valerie, I have 2 Bentley Little's posted : The Burning & The Collection, you can have a 2 for 1 deal on those, or mix n match with anything else on the shelf.  2 for 1 on anything.

Cheers, Margaret

Hi Valerie!  I have several classics on my bookshelf that I'd be willing to make a deal with.  You can have them 3 for 1 -

Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain

Favorite Poems by William Wordsworth

Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley

Heart of Darkness and the Secret Sharer by Joseph Conrad

In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway

Just let me know if you'd like any of these.  If you see anything else on my shelf that you'd like, just let me know.  I might be willing to make a deal on those too :)
