So, I've had some books on my reminder list for a while, and haven't ordered them for one reason or another.  Some of them have several copies available, so people might be willing to make deals, but I'll admit that I'm too lazy to spend much time looking for deals.  So instead I'll solicit deals now that I have a few credits to spend.  I'm looking for the following books:

Bo Knows Bo by Bo Jackson

The Bourne Legacy by Eric van Lustbader

Dave Barry collections, except "Complete Guide to Guys," "Dave Barry Slept Here," and "Dave Barry Talks Back"

Different Seasons by Stephen King

Thomas Boswell collections, except Cracking the Show

The Hypochondriac's Guide to Life. And Death. by Gene Weingarten

Next by Michael Crichton

Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire


No ISBNs are listed becuase I don't really care whether these are paperback, hardcover, or whatever.  If anyone wants to offer a deal, I'll accept pretty much any deal that includes two or more of these books, and I'll consider anything that includes one of these books along with something else.

I have Different Seasons but need to check on the condition of the book when I get home. If it is postable, I'll offer you 2 for 1.

Nicole, I ordered a book off your shelf, and I don't care if Different Seasons is postable, as long as it's readable.


Holly, thanks for the offer.  I ordered Wicked off your shelf and PMed you.  If only I had posted this earlier so I could have gotten To Kill a Mockingbird from you, too.

I have some credits left that I'm willing to spend if anyone else wants to make an offer on any of these books.

I do still have Seabiscuit and would be more than happy to offer a deal if you can find anything else you'd like.

(Thanks Jaime) :)

Cindy, I got your PM and responded.  Thanks!


Jamie, thanks for the heads up.  Maurine, I'm headed to look at your shelf right now.  If I find something, I'll order Seabiscuit and PM you with what else I want.
