My nephew is 14 and lives in New Mexico with his grandparents and they won't buy him books. The horrible people. So I am trying to gather him a series or 2 to send over. I would prefer deals or to order several from one person.

Has read:

Lemony snicket

Harry Potter


R.L . Stine besides the newest ones.

Hey, Sherry!

I don't have any books for him but I would like to suggest: The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.  My son loved those books.

On Monday, I'll run by my library and see if they have anything he might like!

I have Fallen Angels and Flight 116 is down that he may enjoy reading.  I also have several Christopher Pike Books listed and he's similiar to RL Stine.  I'm doing a 2 for 1 deal on my shelf if you're interested. Becky

I have a bunch of Animorphs on my bookshelf and some R.L. Stine although they are older ones. Take a look if you are interested in anything I will give you 3 books for 1 credit.

Hope you can find something you like.

There's a Vampire series by Darren Shan....Cirque Du Freak.  The kids in my Middle School/High School couldn't get enough of them and kept coming back to me to see if I managed to get the latest book.  We were all disappointed when the series ended.  He also has another series out there, but I haven't gotten into them....too many books, not enough time.

I have the following Jeff Foxworthy books... my teenager loved this stuff!

Check Your Neck

Games Rednecks Play

Hick is Chic

Red Ain't Dead

You Might Be a Redneck If...

You're Not a Kid Anymore

*** Also just listed the Official Redneck Handbook by Bo Whaley.

 I might be persuaded to do a 2-for-1 on these if you'll take them all :)

I have a couple of older Christopher Pike and RL Stine if you're still looking. I'm running a 2 for 1 on my entire bookshelf. Thanks.
