I recieved a box of Agatha Christie books today and there are several too old for ISBN's. I will gladly send two books for one credit. All paperback in postable condition, normal aging. These books are old they have yellowing on the pages from sitting on shelves.

  1. The Body in the Library (a Miss Marple Mystery)
  2. Destinatino Unknown (a thriller, not a detective story)
  3. Murder with Mirrors (a Miss Marple Mystery)
  4. Murder at Hazelmoor
  5. Nemesis (A Miss Marple Mystery)
  6. Towards Zero
  7. Murder on the Orient Express (a Hercule Poirot Mystery)

please PM me with any requests or questions. I have other Agatha Christie books on my Bookshelf and will be happy to include any of the above books for free when ordering a book from my bookshelf.

Most of my bookshelf is mystery...some I've read, some not, as they are acquisitions from FOL sales, so i can't offer opinions on many of them. But I'm a little puzzled about this thread. Would it not be easier just to click on someone's bookshelf button to see what mysteries (and other books) are listed rather than copy and pasting everything?

And uh....with regard to the title of the thread "Nonwishlisted books on your shelf..." it's kind of a foregone conclusion that any book listed on your bookshelf isn't wishlisted, right, at least not in the ISBN you have listed--otherwise it would already have been offered to someone. I can see the point of the other threads (wishlisted books with different ISBNS and offering WL'd books to buddies here first, and the deals thread) but this one seems sort of...well, whatever. LOL Anyway, there's a bunch of mysteries on my shelf and if anyone cares to see what, just click on my bookshelf button. :-)

Cheryl, I wondered about it at first but I'm not going to just go around randomly clicking on different people's booshelves but I will look to see what mysteries they have available in a forum posting. For instance I won't go to the trouble of clicking on your bookshelf and then doing a search for your mysteries, etc. because you gave me no reason to go to the trouble. You aren't offering a deal, you didn't tell me any authors you have that I might have been interested in or series that I might like so I have zero reason to look at your shelf.  I did scan through all the mysteries that others had posted but I would not have gone to everyone's bookshelf. I spend too much time on PBS as it is.
