I picked up a copy of Omamori by Richard McGill today. ISBN #0-553-27300-0. The pages and binding are intact, although the cover has seen better days, a bit tattered on the ends. I also got a copy of Dunnett's Game of Kings, ISBN #0-09-9489406 up for grabs after I get back to the office and can scan the cover to upload to Goodreads (I loathe nekkid books). It's not quite trade paperback sized, but larger than a normal MMPB.

Hello, Team!

We have two of Elwyth Thane's books available. TAKEN!

Ever After -
Author: Elswyth Thane (Says it's paperback, but it's not - it's an old bookclub hardback edition. Has the dust jacket; but it's in poor condition. Book is lovely.)


Kissing Kin
Author: Elswyth Thane (has some faint water damage; still a very clean book - but nonetheless.)


So - both books for one credit if you're interested.

I have "Cleopatra's Daughter" by Michelle Moran.  I bought it at a used book sale, and it appears there is water damage, so it is unpostable.  Free to a good home, PM me.

I've got an unpostable copy of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See available to someone for free.  The book is in fairly good shape but has some underlining and writing in it.   I am heading to the post office later this week to mail PBS books, so if you would like this one let me know soon and I can mail it off with the others.  Taken by REK...thanks!!!

I have all three of Noah Gordon's Physician trilogy available, all postable, so 3 credits to post directly to your WL.

Gone in a flash!

I got home today to a package from Random House today.  Inside was an ARC of The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin.  I don't remember requesting a review copy of this from the publisher but apparently I did since it showed up.  I also requested it from Netgalley and got approved a week ago so now I don't need the ARC that showed up today. 

If anyone wants to take it off my hands just send me a PM. smiley
