Happy Memorial Day everyone!

My magnificent Dad died this past week at the age of 84.  In honor of his life and memory and his dedicated service in the U.S. Army until the end of World War II in the South Pacific, I am offering everyone at PBS who cares to partake of my shelf a super victorious 6 for 1 deal! Hail the start of summer with a bouquet of books and be sure to hand over big salutes to all of our honored service people who are there to guide and stand beside all of us and our glorious country.

I get my books from a lot of different friends, resale sources and auctions, but don't post any malodorus (ie: smoke/must/mothballs) finds and we share a BIG house with a packet of cat friends and a Border Collie but they prefer to prowl around stuff like foodstuffs and although I've tried to interest them, I find that they are not avid readers and would prefer to be anywhere else apart from books where we don't want them to be such as lounging on furniture and especially any clothing articles I have neglected to hang up... now why is it they have such an immense talent for getting white hairs on your black things and black hairs on your white things? Uncanny phenomenon! 

Order 1 and PM me your choices... and please post here, too. I'll be around this weekend and will check in and update often. Have fun and share the love of reading as my Dad and I did so very often!  

Remembering Joseph James Wisthoff 1924-2009

The very best to all --- Donna

Thank you very much!!  And I hope you have a nice Memorial Day Weekend.

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for your kindness and the order, and of course, our kindred love of reading! Books are pulled just for you and shelf is now updated.  Everyone else is emphatically encouraged to jump on the bandwagon and take advantage of this marvelous Memorial Day DEAL! 6 for 1 or a half dozen for one, whatever way you want to verbalize it, you'll surely love your textural experience!

Thanks to all and hope everyone is out there having fun and fond memories,

Parents are parents regardless of our age,  I don't need any of your books but my thoughts are with you.

My WWII Dad has been gone 10  years now and I still think of him every day.
