I got these from I think my grandmother a while ago.  I have a few of them and they seem like books that people would probably enjoy.  Apparently they are condensed versions of four books in one.  I have no idea how to post them since they don't have an ISBN though.  Am I allowed to post these?  I found them on amazon but even they don't list an ISBN for them.  Any idea or should I just take them to the Friend of the Library sale or something?

In case anyone else stumbles over this query, yes, you can post them as non-ISBN items.  When you're making your listing, bear in mind that the more information you can provide, particularly information about what stories are available in each volume and what they are about, the better that will help the items "move" from your shelf.

I posted one of these last month using the no ISBN option and adding a cover image and description. It was ordered within a week.  I was surprised it went that fast, but a lot of people like these books. And I must confess that I prefer my daughters editions of Jane Eyre and Little Women to my own uncondensed versions. LOL

Glad to hear that there is hope for mine.
