Hello! I am a collector of what are sometimes referred to as "animal fantasy" novels - books like Watership Down or Tailchaser's Song; where the main characters are animals that talk. I use to have a massive collection of these types of books that numbered over a thousand titles, until, ironically enough, about 2/3rds of it was destroyed by animals (Mice, shrews and bugs, mostly) while I was away at college. Naturally, I'm quite upset over the loss of my books and am slowly working on building the collection back up; as well as acquiring new titles I never owned before :) Please, if you have any books of this type that you want to get off your shelf, please let me know so we can work out a deal!

Books I'll turn away:
1. Picture books (when it comes to children's books; I'm interested only in "chapter books" that have many more words than pictures)
2. Books I already own (and I own a lot - however, there's a lot that I do not already own, so don't hesitate about making offers!)

This is a sampling of my Reminder List to give you a concrete example of specific titles I'm looking for; as well as the types of books I'm talking about:
