 Let's try hard to be sure that what we post here is truly giftable...not just in great condition. We should be able  to give as a gift, as if we just purchased the book.

So no shelf wear, creases, yellowing pages, etc...but in brand new condition (including jacket). I know that will limit the posts, but it will make this thread more reliable.

And please don't forget to check back and cross off books  that are gone.

updated beginning 9/8/08.

The following hardcovers on my list are in giftable condition, have never been read, have their dustjackets and only have minor scuffs from shelf wear.

  • Angela's Ashes :: Frank McCourt   ISBN-13: 9780684874357 ISBN-10: 0684874350
  • Tis : A Memoir :: Frank McCourt  ISBN-13: 9780684848785 ISBN-10: 0684848783
  • Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces :: Tom Clancy, Carl Stiner  ISBN-13: 9780399147838 ISBN-10: 0399147837

I received this paperback free with my eharlequin order, so it's never been read and is in giftable condition. I'm doing a 3-for-1 on all Harlequins/Silhouettes on my shelf, so if it suits you, pick another two Harlequin/Silhouettes from my shelf, and all three can be had for one credit:

  • Tempted By Innocence (Harlequin Historical) :: Lyn Randal  ISBN-13: 9780373294541 ISBN-10: 0373294549

all of the left behind >The Kids< series on my shelf are giftable, have only been read once/twice, hubby took real good care of them and while reading them didnt cause any bending in the in the spine like most books get when opened all the way, they look never read.  I think a few other books on my shelf are giftable but will have to go thru them later.
