2 for 1 today through July 24.  Decided to extend the offer a little longer because I've had such great response. I'll be adding new books tomorrow afternoon, so keep checking back. Not much in the way of romances, but a wide variety of everything else.  Plus, with any order, you may also choose a book from my ARCs or unpostables, making it a 3 for 1.  Please, please, please deplete me!  Post your choices here so others can see what’s been taken and PM me as well.  If by chance more than one person requests the same book, I will go by the time stamp on the PM, just to be fair.

 Added some new books this afternoon. 

ARCs

Wild Animus by Rich Shapero~cover looks just like the original release

Invisible Eden by Maria Flook~bound galley, has publicity contact information sticker, still wrapped in plastic, never read.  Cover is just like the release.

UNPOSTABLES

All of these are perfectly readable, just not up to either my standards or PBS standards.

Ambush at Corellia: Book one of the Corellian Trilogy (Star Wars) by Roger Macbride Allen~front cover is ratty looking, back cover looks fine.  The book itself is in good shape. 

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice~postable except that the cover and first page has a tiny bit of waving at the bottom.  It’s not that noticeable, but still.

Julian’s House by Judith Hawkes~probably postable, but there’s a little too much wear for my taste.

Before Women Had Wings by Connie Mae Fowler~ great book, but has some wavy pages.  Honestly, I didn’t notice the wavy pages until I got to them in the course of reading the story.

Strandia by Susan Lynn Reynolds~I actually had this one posted, until I looked at it the other day and found some staining on the bottom.  No clue what it is, but it in no way affects reading, didn’t do any water-type damage, and is odorless.  This book is otherwise in excellent condition. It won the Young Adult Canadian Book Award and is a first edition paperback.

Stephen King~I just got all of these in hard back finally, so I’m letting go of the paperbacks.

Carrie~ well-loved.  Probably postable, but iffy, which is why I’m offering it free.

The Talisman~ some minor wavy pages, otherwise fine.

Night Shift~small cover tear at base of spine; under the 1-inch allowed by the rules, but I wouldn’t post it. Also looks like it might be thinking about coming apart at page 74; apparently I must have really enjoyed The Mangler at the time.  Everything is holding together, but you can see where it is beginning to make the break. 

The Shining~the silver cover edition which means the description on the back has significant fading.  Why they thought printing on silver paper was a good idea is anyone’s guess.  This one is postable, but the fading text on the back cover annoys me, so I decided to offer it free instead.

Offer extended a few more days due to the great response I've had.  So, I'll keep it going through July 24.  Will be adding several new books again tomorrow afternoon, so check back then if you don't see anything that catches your eye tonight. 

Thanks to everyone who's ordered thus far. :-)
