I am posting this for my mothers' boyfriends disabled mom, in December her home went up in flames and she lost everything, the house burnt down to the ground and her pets didn't make it out. :(  Luckily she suffered no physical injuries, but she is under extreme stress and anxiety and very depressed because of what happened. Since the fire she has been staying with us. My family is a very low income family and we are struggling as it is, I can't afford to buy any credits nor send out any books from my bookshelf but I would like to try to replace some books she lost in the fire with the few credits I have left, I only have 3 credits but was hoping I could get some really great deals on some books for her?  I would greatly appreciate it :)

Thank you to anyone who reads this and god bless you all! 

 

**EDIT** - thank you to everyone for the well wishes and help! we greatly appreciate it! we are good on books for her for now! :)

Really sorry for the late response, I don't get much internet access. The types of books I am looking for, for her are supernatural, romance, mystery, suspense, and a certain christian speaker type books, she has a wide variety taste in books which is great. A few authors she likes are Kim Harrison, Joyce Meyer, James Patterson, Katie McAlister, Kerrelyn Sparks.

As for the type of deal I'm looking for since I don't have many credits it would be great to get a 3 for 1 deal if that is at all possible, but honestly its up to the person offering. :)

 

and thank you very much Jeanne!!! :)

I think you might get a little more response for certain deals you're looking for in the book bazaar. I'd try posting what you're looking for there so more people can see it.

Hello,

Hope events are getting better for you and your family.

I have many Patterson books posted on my bookshelf.  Tell me which ones you want and then I can remove them from my bookshelf and send them to you directly.  Need an address.

 

Regards,

If your still needing books, let me know. I probably have some she would like and can do 3 for 1. Just send me a message and we can work it out.
