This thread is for advertising that poor old book that has been on your shelf forever! It might be a great book, but no one knows about it. OR, maybe there are a bazillion copies ahead of you!  Whatever the reason.....post it here.  Include a deal if you want (not neccessary).

Please remember to come back to your post and delete it once it is gone...then update it with the new "oldest" book.

Just looking for a fun way to get those oldies, but goodies, moving! 

Most important-- have fun!

My oldest book is

Primary Colors by Anonymous

"A brilliant and penetrating look behind the scenes of modern American politics, Primary Colors is a funny, wise, and dramatic story with characters and events that resemble some familiar, real-life figures. When a former congressional aide becomes part of the staff of the governor of a small Southern state, he watches in horror, admiration, and amazement, as the governor mixes calculation and sincerity in his not-so-above-board campaign for the presidency."  Very Clinton-esque.

I listed this 12/18/05

Deal - order this one and choose any other book FREE

I don't let my books get old.  I donate them to the local library or Nursing Home if they are there too long.  I also don't bother to list books that have over 50 on the system already.  Hello -- that's how books stay on lists for years -- too many out there to begin with.  LOL  I list books that I've read or received as gifts that I'm not interested in.  If there's no interest here, I move it to mooch for two weeks then off to the library.  No double posting and no room for stock- piling.  Fortunately though, there's a lot of people on here that like the same things I am reading and a great majority of my TBR pile is wishlisted and I'm passing along the ones I've read as quickly as I can.  :)
