I have some books that are non popular due to the fact they haven't really been publicized here in the States.. They are all historical fiction. I thought I would mention them here and if they sound like something anyone would like, you can go and find them on the pbs website and request them. They are from England or Australia.

 

Books were requested and thus, removed from this post. :)

HI Tara!  (jumping up and down.)  Y'all this is Tara and she is a particular friend of Cathy and me.  Tara is a fellow contributor to our project which can't be named on the boards. 

Tara we have a dedicated thread to book offers for Dec.  But as you are a forum newbie it is no biggie, here is the link http://www.paperbackswap.com/December-Books-Available/topic/251718/

If I wasn't credit poor I would have requested one.  But I have to wait until after Christmas to order any more books.

If I have books I want to post I generally offer them up at the monthly available books thread here first. It's a good way to try to find a home for ARC's that you can't post as well.

I found an ARC group.. the one I have is not historical so I didn't bother mentioning it here. It's a nonfiction/India thing. Well, what the heck, everyone, I have an ARC available of Behind the Beatiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. Will send in exchange for a credit. :)

Jerelyn, is there something you are wanting? I can take it off my list and mail it to you and you can credit me when you can. I KNOW you. LOL

I'm a sucker for anything having to do with women in aviation, so Glory Girl sounds right up my alley! I also ordered the last one as well, as I don't think I've ever read HF set in the Arabian Peninsula. I'm always game for new experiences!

Lemme know if you were interested in either one, Jerelyn, and I'll send 'em your way when I'm done. smiley

Oh thanks Tara, but I have a bazillion books at present, and some I have to get reviewed.  I am not even thinking about next year yet.  I am doing the 2012 challenges but I am going to fill in as I go. 

Amiee that is very generous, let me know and I will see when the time comes ok?
