I have only been a member for a few months, but decided to do this for fun.  Looked at my shelf & realized that I only have 1 book left from the initial 10 that I posted, just to try out this web site- LOL.  I am now a complete addict to PBS & can't figure out why I was somewhat skeptical at the beginning.  Joined the BOB'ers too.  I now have so many books I may not live long enough to read them all. 

So - my oldest book is the Cliff Notes for The Scarlet Letter.  Order it & I'll do a 3 for 1, or PM me with any other ideas you may have.  I'm always open to suggestions.  : - )

I have 2 books from 2007 (cleaned my shelf out at some point before that).

A Groom of One's Own (and Other Bridal Accessories) which is hillarious.  (http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780452269453-A+Groom+of+Ones+Own+And+Other+Bridal+Accessories)


The Walking Drum by Louis L'Amore. 

I'm currently running a deal on my shelf, but I'll sweeten the pot a little.  Instead of a 3:2 if you include one of these books I'll give you 4:2.

I have  Blooming All Over posted  on 7/5/07    order it and I will throw in 2 other books you choose from my shelf----here is the book description--

Bagels with a smear of love . . .only at Bloom's.

There may be a bigger deli than Bloom's somewhere in the world, but there's certainly none better! That doesn't mean it's the only place Susie Bloom ever wants to dine, though. Writing The Bloom's Bulletin is a fun sideline, but Susie is keeping her options open . . .not just with the store, but also with tall, blond and handsome Casey, the ever-so-sexy Bloom's bagel master. Casey is pushing for marriage, but Susie has her qualms. Can a girl from Manhattan settle down with a guy from Queens?

Susie's cousin Rick is an aspiring filmmaker, with his own recipe for success. After persuading the family to fund a Bloom's infomercial, he taps Susie to be the leading lady. But while Susie is filming in New England and aspiring to win at Cannes, Casey quits Bloom's to open his own specialty bakery. Not only that, he appears to have another woman in his life. It's time for Susie to decide on her order. Does she want canapés in Cannes, or a bagel and lox right here in New York?
