My friendly, helpful Postal Worker has a son overseas who is going stir crazy without enough to read. She told me she mails books and mags to him in the flat rate boxes, and it works great, but she just can't afford to buy all the books he wants. I immediately jumped on this and offered to help supply books to her, so she can ship them to him; however, I am totally out of my element here, and haven't got a clue about what a 20-something man in the military who likes Sci-Fi would want.

I have some extra credits and can order from someone, but I would especially like suggestions of titles (and of course, any "deals" that you can offer as well).

 

Thanks,

Liz

I'll take a look at my shelf and get back  to you tomorrow. Depending how many you're looking at getting, maybe we can make a deal (2 for 1 or something).

I'm taking the lists that several of you sent to me, and I'll show her this week when I go. Once she lets me know which books she wants to send, I'll get back with ya.

This is an amazing group!

 

Blessings,

Liz
