My aunt died a few years ago and I inherited her millions of cookbooks.  Some are VERY old.  I posted a few of them just to see how they would do.  Anyone interested, take a look.  I also have an abundance of church/community cookbooks and such but I haven't posted those as they aren't actually "published" books and I didn't know if they were allowed.

I can't believe nobody's jumped on your offer yet, but I'd probably love to have all the church/community cookbooks (have collected them for years from all over).  I literally just stumbled on this website about 10 minutes ago, so haven't even browsed your offers yet nor learned how everything works.  Is discussing by phone allowed?  I haven't time now to post my bookshelf, but fear I have nothing you'd want--could we barter something else or discuss a selling price.?  If you have a list of them it would be so helpful.

Hi!  I haven't put a list together yet.  To tell you the truth, I didn't think anyone would want them.  I just put them out there to see what would happen.  I will get a list together today and post it here.  Welcome to the swap!  :)

Ms. Covatta, you might want to edit your post. As you know, seeing as you seem to have joined the site based on this post, this page can be viewed by anyone on the internet. Maybe you don't mind posting your phone number, name (or husband's name rather), and email address for all the world to see, but personally I would not do it. You should also know that book for book trades are only allowed on here if you are a member of the "box of books" feature, and no selling of books is allowed. I suggest you two swap info via PM (if you have not already contacted each other) and then take any further arrangements to your personal email or something (off of this website). Just trying to give you a heads up since you are new, I would hate to see either of you get your accounts suspended. Make sure you check out the Help Documents as well, they will tell you all about how the site works and what is/is not permitted. Welcome to Paperback Swap!

A couple of the books that are pictured aren't posted on here because they were just too bad.
