If anyone has multiple books on the list and would be willing to offer a deal, please let me know!  I would love to hear from you.  I am also interested in a deal on books for 0-3 years from the"1,001 books to read before you grow up"  (update as of 6/4 I am up to 116 books from the 1001 list and the latest revised list has 1294 books-the list of what I have is now on my profile page at the top of my book lists on the right of the page-the list is titled "1001s I have (work in progress)).  I am especially interested in multiples by J. M. Coetzee, Paul Auster,  Kazuo Ishiguro, D.H. Lawrence, Don DeLillo,  Kingsley Amis, Martin Amis and Iain Banks and still looking for "Jazz" by Toni Morrison.  Please PM me if you have these on your shelf or take a look at the list and if you have multiples not on my list, please pm me.  Thank you all for your help and kindness thus far.   For the complete list of all 1294 books, here is a link:  http://www.1morechapter.com/projects/1001-list/

I have Bonfire of the Vanities. Check out my shelf to see if anything else interests you/is on the 1001 list. We'll work out a deal.

I just looked at the list and I have three or four from it.   I'm also doing a special, order two, get two free.    So you might want to take a list at my shelf, rather large over 400!!

Thanks so much, everyone.  I have to be away from my computer for the next day or so.  If I have not contacted you yet, I will as soon as I am able.

I have a few of the 1001 books,  was trying to read them all myself.    Can offer a 2 for 1.

warning - large shelf   almost at hubby's last straw number.    He told me if I hit 600, he's having a book burning party.    Have to move some out as I am coming really really close !!

Lisa,

 

Thank you.  I placed an order and sent you a pm.  I appreciate so much the tremendous response from all of you wonderful pbs members!  I am going to regroup and try to make a list of the ones I have ordered and the ones I already own to make it easier for everyone and then I will repost.  Again, thank you all so much!

I have put a list on my profile page titled "1001s I have (work in progress)" that shows all of the books from the list that I have currently.  The total is now 93 books.  There are actually 1294 books with the additions to the revised most recent official list that I am aware of, so there are still 1201 books to go!

I have a lot of DH Lawrence books that I haven't posted but if you are still interested in them let me know and I will try and dig them out of the basement.
