We have quite a few thrift stores in town and they all carry many books.  At least once a week, I stop at one of them to see what they have.  I noticed that all of the stores have A TON of romances.  I don't read this type of book so I don't know what authors are popular or what series are especially wanted.  SO if any of you who read romances would like to post your wishes here or give me some ideas about popular authors and/or series, I can see what the stores have.  If I find something you asked for, obviously I'll give you first "dibs" on it. 

Paperbacks are only 75cents and sometimes even that price is marked down.  I have found many wishlisted books in like new condition at these stores!  FYI - I only buy books that are in very good condition.

Hi Sharon,

These two are on my wishlist:

 Michelle Marcos - Gentlemen Behaving Badly - http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780312948504-Gentlemen+Behaving+Badly+Pleasure+Emporium

Joanna Bourne - My Lord and Spymaster - http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780425222461-My+Lord+and+Spymaster

They're recent releases, and the second one is highly wishlisted. Thank you very much for looking!

I would like to get the first 4 books in the Argeneau Vampire series by Lynsay Sands.

1.  A Quick Bite

2.  Love Bites

3.  Single White Vampire

4.  Tall, Dark and Hungry

They are wishlisted so I don't hold out much hope.


I have books 6,7, and 8.  Book 5 is on it's way to me.

Well you never know Nancy.  Every time I have bought books recently from thrift stores I have come home with at least one wishlisted book - and in great shape!  It just depend on what people want to get rid of.  But I'll add that to my list.  I did find one vampire wishlisted book but a) it's gone and b) it wasn't Sands.
