Hi - I'm not sure if these books are popular with readers in this forum, but it seemed like the place to ask this question - so . . .

I just came into possession of about 100 Love Inspired books - about 1/3 of them from 2004 to 2007.  I know most readers of these expect to spend less than a credit per book - which I don't have a problem with.  In the past I've usually grouped 5 or 6 books of one type (Larger Print, Christmas, etc.) together and given a deal for the total group - but I've never had this many titles to trade all at the same time.

My question is this - would readers of LI books prefer that I list what I have by author or published date in a Book Bazaar deal? 

Do readers look to fill in blanks in a favorite authors titles, or would they rather know that the book is an older copy?

Any input would be appreciated! :)  Thanks, Ann Marie

I can't speak for anyone else, as I don't read many of LI books, but I am most interested in filling in a series. I think it would be best just to list all the titles with the author and let people pick which ones they want.

I know that the times I've gotten into them I've figured out that there are some authors I really like and some that I don't. I'm more interested in following authors than years.

I've been sorting by author as well as separating LP and Suspense from the main group.  I putting off dealing them because I came across another 50 or so to add to the original bunch - I hope to get a deal in the threads by next week.

I also ended up with some Harlequin and Silhouettes that I figured would be more likely to move if I give them their own post.

Thanks so much for the input - it is greatly appreciated. :-)

I like several of the Love Inspired series, including Large Print, the regular Love Inspired and the Historical.

I would love to hear if you have any of your books left?  You can send me a PM.  =)

I'd say author is the biggest thing, although a general remark about what years most are might be helpful as some people have read all but the most recent.
