Looking for something different... please post here what you consider your most obscure books, and books that you have the only posted title of.  Please also include the ISBN for the books... and your opinions of these books would also be welcome!!

 

Thanks,

Stacie :)

Dang I think most of my bookshelf that is over a year old is weird and obscure.  I will come back and list a few oddballs.

Here are some of mine:

Cafe Berlin by Harold Nebenal  ISBN:9780879512842. A Sephardic Jew, passing as a Spaniard runs a nightclub in Berlin in the 1930's. In 1943, he is in hiding and writes about his years in Berlin leading up to his concealment. Very accurate in the depiction of historical facts.

Train Your Brain: The Complete Mental Workout for a Fit and Agile Mind by Joel Levy  ISBN:9780760789858. Need I say more?

The Incredible Book of Vatican Facts and Papal Curiosities: A Treasury of Trivia by Nino Lo Bello  ISBN: 9780760758625.

I have Richer by Asia, by Edmond Taylor, about the British Raj, Magister Ludi, by Herman Hesse, Siguiriya by Sylvia Lopez-Medina and actually a good part of my bookshelf is non-typical.  Maybe you'll take a look?

Well, I have ordered so many books, that I have depleted most of my credits  -- oh no I better get them back up before I start getting wish list offers lol

 

Most of the books left on my shelf at this time is pretty much crap that has been sitting around forever, but if anyone is interested in anything, I have to get rid of it!!

 

Currently offering 5 for 1 on any Harloquin/Silhoutte books and 3 for 1 on any other, EXCEPT textbooks which are not included in the offer since they are heavy and cost more to ship.  If you want to mix and match or see a lot that you are interested in, let me know I would be happy to do other deals.  Happy Holidays everyone!!

Stacie, I checked out your bookshelf and found three books I would like.  I will order the Collector by Cruise and would like

Deck the Halls - Clark

Op-Center - Clancy

I wish I liked Harlequin as you have a nice collection to choose from!

Thank you!
