I have excessively worn but perfectly readable copies of Lovely Lying Lips by Valerie Sherwood and Mossflower by Brian Jacques.

I have Kathleen by Francine Rivers.  It is on 13 WLs.  It, too, is excessively worn and has one page torn horizontally (even and straight from page edge inward toward spine...really odd!) but is perfectly readable.

One free with an order from my bookshelf.

I've had to put my bookshelf on hold temporarily.  These will be available again when I am mailing out books again.

I have a copy of Eragon by Paolini (ISBN 044023848) that I purchased in vacation, took to an NCAA basketball game and someone spilled water on it wrinkling the back cover and the last 200 or so pages. Totally readable and I'd love to off-load it because I just really wasn't a fan. Free with any order. :)
