I'm looking for deals on the books listed in the 1001 books to read before you die book. So if you have deals on lots of classics please let me know, thanks!

I have Love in the Time of Cholera (Marquez) and The Scarlet Letter (Hawthorne) on my shelf. Also have Catch-22 (Heller) as an unpostable. Will do 3 for 1. Let me know if you are interested.

I have the following books on the 1001 books lists:

  • Around the world in 80 days by Jules Verne
  • The Reader by Bernhard Schlink

and unpostables:

  • Death of Ivan Ilych and other stories by Leo Tolstoy
  • The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
  • The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
  • The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen

I'm currently offering a 6/3 or 10/3 deal. Since the Corrections is very heavy, I will not send it out by itself or in a deal involving only one credit.

Good luck collecting the 1001 bookssmiley
