Please choose one of the following unpostables with each book ordered from my bookshelf:

Black House – Stephen King & Peter Straub ISBN: 0-345-44103-6 (paperback) Only slightly worn, this book would be postable if not for a large tear on the back cover where a sticker or tape was removed.

So Far From the Bamboo Grove – Yoko Kawashima Watkins ISBN: 0-688-13115-8 (paperback) Large creases on both front and back cover, but clean pages and tight binding. Ex school book with “Used Book” stamped on it.

River God – Wilbur Smith ISBN: 0-312-95446-8 (paperback) On this one, the cover is torn along the front and is beginning to come lose from the binding. All the pages are still intact. There is an inscription on the first page.

The Witching Hour – Anne Rice ISBN: 0-345-38446-6 (paperback) This book’s cover is about halfway torn off. Pages are intact and have been stamped by a used bookstore.

The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger (paperback) This is an older copy; the cover is about halfway torn off. The pages are yellowed and stained from storage. I can’t find an ISBN number.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J.K. Rowling ISBN: 0-439-35807-8 (paperback) I just got this a few weeks ago from another swapper, but it is too worn for me to put back into the system. There is a little bit of staining on some of the pages, the corners of the cover are beginning to curl up and the first few pages are torn slightly. (The tears do not affect readability.)

Irish Dreams – Nora Roberts ISBN: 0-373-28541-8 (paperback) This one has some wavy pages, but is still readable.

Cause of Death – Patricia Cornwell ISBN: 978-0-425-21338-4(paperback) The glue is failing on this book. The front cover is loose, and so is a 50 page chunk of the book.
