I remember reading a lot of Judy Blume at age 11 (not Forever or Wifey, but the kids' stuff). I have 3 titles from her on my shelf, and I could send all 3 for 1 credit, check them out.

I am a boxer also and I have kids books on my bookshelf.  If you find any you are interested in, we might be able to work out a trade or 2 for 1 credit if they are not to heavy (some are hardback).  

Some ideas are:

Case of the Runaway Turtle (Clue Jr)
Double Fudge by Judy Blome
How to do Homework without throwing up
Judy Moody Saves the World
True or False - Tests Stink (this talks about how to take tests without getting stressed and tips for making them easier).

I pm'd you - Let me know.

A lot of my shelf is my girls books and they are 13 and 11. I would recomend the following from my shelf:
Sabrina the teenage witch based of the tv show. I loved the show my daughter loves the books

Animal ark fun animal stories

Box car children loved them as a kid and read them about age 11

mary Kate and Ashley mysteries

American girl

Great illustrated classics

Jack star and the secret door  my almost 12 year old loved it

midnight chess game again my almost 12 year old loved it

mysteries in the national park the mysteries take place in the different national parks with a family as they are on vacation

real kids adventures I have vol 1 and vol 2. These are so good. I enjoyed them as well. Kids you really help other kids

rescue 911 kids you come to the rescue again true stories( really good)

True tales of animal heroes read how regular animals become heroes. This is really good as well.

I would be willing to do 5 books for 3 credits, 11 books for 6 credits or 20 books for 10 credits.  I will gladly extend this to anyone reading this.  I hope you find some. My girls have enjoyed all that I listed! JEan

Unfortunately most of my childhood books were lost when our old house burned down, so I can't offer you any kids books for trade, but I would suggest looking for the following:


Nancy Drew books

Hardy Boys books

Boxcar Children books

Babysitter's Club and Little Sister's books

She might be a little young yet for Tamora Pierce's Tortall world, but if she's an advanced reader, or if you're looking ahead...

Alex Mack books

Animorphs books

Laura Ingalls Wilder books

(I had some old Freddy the Pig books that I loved, but I'm not sure how easy they are to find.)

My 11 y/o daughter has recently cleaned her shelves of book she's already read. They're all now posted here. If you see anything, let me know. I'm always willing to do 3/2 or 5/3. If you have another deal in mind, I'm open to offers!

the book Eleven is real fun.  I can't think of the author at the moment.

I have over 100 children's books on my shelf. I will do 5 for 3 credits or 8 for 4 credits or 12 for 5 credits. If you want more than that the deal gets better as the # of books goes up. Please send a PM telling me which ones you want free after you order the books for credit from my shelf. Thank you. Peggy
