Approximately 20% of pages have wrinkles, mostly on upper outside corners, from water damage. Free with order of two other books from my shelf. PM me with books you will order. This offer is listed on several forums. First come, first served.

I just read the first Gaslight Mystery by Victoria Thompson and really like it, and I know that there are quite a few in the series. I'd love to have a deal on them. Paperback only, please.

Please PM me if you can offer a deal.

Thanks. :)

I am offering a deal until the end of January on my shelf.  4 for 2, 8 for 3 and 10 for 4.  My shelf has Evanovich, Cussler, Reilly, Garwood and others.

Please feel free to check out my book lists, which contain: Wish List (Wishlisted items) and Additional Books (Books with zero copies and zero wishers).  Those can’t be used with a deal, but can be used with my bookshelf.  My requirements which are in the Wishlist Multiples: are orders of 2 or more.

Just place your order and PM me your freebies.  For any deals and/or wishlist please turn off RC’s.

Clive Cussler has a Special Deal

I have an unpostable because it’s looking pretty old Mediterranean Caper.  So for the Cussler’s only  I will do a deal of 9 for 3 and throw in the unpostable.

Vixen 03

Pacific Vortex



Valhalla Rising

Deep Six

Shock Wave

Polar Shift

I have a number of Ngaio Marsh mystery novels with no ISBNs and don't have the time to go posting individual entries. They're pretty slim, so I'd be happy to do a 2-for-1 trade. Please PM, I'll cross them off as they are claimed:

Hand in Glove (2 copies)
Night at the Vulcan
Vintage Murder
Tied up in Tinsel
Spinsters in Jeopardy (this one does have an ISBN but I'm including it anyway)

NOTE: These books are from the 1970s, so while they certainly meet the PBS posting guidelines they do have age-yellowed pages and slightly worn covers/spines. They will not look like brand new books.

I am offering a 2 for 1 on all Mack Bolan Executioner books on my bookshelf. I am willing to do a better deal the more that are ordered. I have around 70 or 80 of the first 100 or so. All in good condition.

I would like to clear out my shelf.  I'm offering a 5/2 until May 2 when whatever remains will be packed up and donated.  There aren't a lot of books but maybe you'd find something you'd like.  Pick two and PM with your free choices.

I also have the following James Patterson books, all are mass market paperbacks.  I don't have them posted, too lazy to do it.  If you're interested in one or all or any combination please let me know..

Alex Cross:

Jack and Jill     London Bridges     Big Bad Wolf                    Roses Are Red     Violets Are Blue
Mary, Mary       Cat and Mouse      Pop Goes the Weasel      Double Cross       Four Blind Mice    Cross

Plus I have the four Twilight books if any one is interested in them.

Hi Everyone!

I am back after a long hiatus from PBS.  I still won't be participating a lot but I have accumulated some books that need new homes.

I have all five of the Lily Bard Shakespeare series by Charlaine Harris that I will do 5 for 4.  The books are in good condition with some foxing to the pages and inside covers.  One book has a creased cover but no tears.  I will post these separately in a couple of weeks if no one is interested but would rather mail them all together.  (Please be patient if I do not answer your pm right away. I may not be able to check my account every day but will at least check every 2-3 days.)

I am a reviewer here and there, and often receive Advance Review Copies of books, mostly mysteries.  I know they can't be listed or traded, but it seems a shame to have these perfectly readable books sitting around being useless.  Is there a way to offer these to folks?  (I have not spent any time on the forums for a long, long time.  There's probably an organized place for such things, but I don't know where to look.)  Any advice?

Rich, That would be so cool to be a reviewer. There is a thread for posting arc's monthly in the Book Bazzar. I will be looking for your future posts because all I read are mysteries/thrillers. Kathy aka lowrider

Special on my book shelf order 2 books get a 3rd free.  Just send me a PM with the title to the free book you want.  My book shelf is mostly mystery, and paranormal with some others.  Some of my books are from small printing companies or little known authors, that I have found some are great reads.
