Order two of these titles from my shelf and PM me your choice of three additional paperbacks for free (5for2):

Seven Seasons of the Man in the Mirror: Guidance for Each Major Phase of Your Life
Author: Patrick Morley

ISBN-13: 9780310246428 - ISBN-10: 0310246423
Posted: 1/24/2010 9:13 PM ET

"In Patrick Morley's true sequel to The Man in the Mirror, a man is taken beyond the day-to-day problems he faces and is confronted with seven major seasons of life that can make him or break him. Includes a leader's guide for small groups. Formerly titled The Seven Seasons of a Man's Life."

The End of Blackness
Author: Debra Dickerson

ISBN-13: 9780375421570 - ISBN-10: 0375421572
Posted: 2/11/2010 5:08 PM ET

"How has the notion of “blackness” bamboozled African Americans into an unhealthy obsession with white America? What are the deleterious consequences of this? How has “blackness” diminished the sovereignty of African Americans as rational and moral beings? How has white America exploited the concept to sublimate its rage toward and contempt for black America? Is American racism an intractable malaise, and who gets to decide when the past is over?"

Under Fire (Corps, #9)
Author: W. E. B. Griffin

ISBN-13: 9780515134377 - ISBN-10: 0515134376
Posted: 3/6/2010 3:31 PM ET

"In the long-awaited ninth book in the Corps series, Griffin leaves WWII behind and thrusts his readers deep into the heart of the Korean War; June 1, 1950: Captain Ken McCoy's report on probable North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. The CIA, however, promptly hires McCoy and, on June 25th, the North Koreans invade across the 38th paralell. For recalled veterans Fleming Pickering and his daredevil son Malcolm, Ed Banning, George Hart, Jack Stecker, Jake Dillon and Ernie Zimmerman, names such as Inchon, Pusan and the Choisin Reservoir are about to acquire a new, bloody reality..."

I joined PBS on March 13, 2009 and actually just reposted most of my bookshelf around April 12, 2012 - I believe that the oldest books on my bookshelf (as of October) at the moment are:

The Best Laid Plans by Sidney Sheldon: Donated by someone for my local library's book sale, bought at my local library's book sale for one dollar. This book is still in relatively good reading condition and does already have a usable paper dust jacket that comes with it. Posted on April 12, 2012

Blood and Orchids by Norman Katkov: Donated by someone for my local library's book sale, bought at my local library's book sale for fifty cents. This book is still in relatively good reading condition and the cover is still strongly attached although it does show signs of being well read. Posted on April 13, 2012

I'm adding newer books all the time so please PM me if you are interested at all. Thanks so much! :)

All books on my shelf 2 for 1...Here are my 3 oldest:

Mr Murder
Author: Dean R. Koontz
Martin Stillwater has a vivid imagination. It charms his loving wife, delights his two little daughters,and gives him all the inspiration he needs to write his highly successful mystery novels. But maybe Martin's imagination is a bit too vivid... one rainy afternoon, a terrifying incident makes him question his grip on reality. A stranger breaks into his house, accusing him of stealing his wife, his children--and his life. Claiming to be the real Martin Stillwater, the intruder threatens to take what is rightfully his. The police think he's a figment of Martin's imagination. But Martin and his family have no choice but to believe the stranger's threat. And run for their lives. But wherever they go--wherever they hide--he finds them...

Author: Michael Crichton
Deep in the heart of the darkest region of the Congo ... an eight-person field expedition dies mysteriously and brutally in a matter of minutes. Ten thousand miles away, at the Houston-based Earth Resources Technology Services, Inc., supervisor Karen Ross watches a gruesome video transmission of that ill-fated team ... and [sees]the grainy, moving image of a dark, blurred shape .... a new expedition is sent into the Congo, descending into a secret world where the only way out may be through the grisliest death


GOOD GUYS How We Turned the FBI 'Round Q and Finally Broke the Mob
Author: Jules Bonavolonta

As gripping as fiction, yet all incredibly true, this book is the story of how FBI Special Agent Bonavolonta brought down the most powerful Mafia families in New York--and forever revolutionized the investigative procedures of the FBI. Includes an eight-page photo insert.
