I just posted a hardcover copy of "Avalon" by Anya Seton.  I see one person is wishing for it; my copy is a book club edition, from 1965 and it doesn't have an ISBN.  I hope whoever is wishing for it sees this post!

Anyone want an unpostable copy of Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman?  It has some water spotting on the back few pages.  I was a litle careless getting out of the bathtub last night, sigh.  If you would like it just pm me and I will send it out on my next trip to the post office.

There is a copy of Husain Haddawy's translation of The Arabian Nights available! This is an absolutely incredible book and I hope that one of my HF buddies snatches it up. It is one of my all time favorite reads. If I had to pick the one book that I have read in my life that swept me away to another place and time more than any other, it would be this one hands down.

Jennifer, I think you sent me a copy of this book, right? I almost just ordered it, but I think I have it. I remember you telling me how good it is, and I need to pull it out and read it.
