A first for me to start this monthly thread!


I have a beautiful but unpostable-because-of-a-coffee-stain copy of Sarah Dunant's In the Company of the Courtesan. Absolutely readable, the coffee stain is on the bottom edge of the book and last few pages-----book + puppy on lap = disaster.  Free to a good home!


And I also have Anya Seton's Dragonwyck--it's perfect, tho--1 credit. SNAGGED!

I stopped at a thrift store today and found a tradepaperback copy of Zemindar by Valerie Fitzgerald (I already own a copy). Excellent condition except for yellowing due to age. Willing to send it off for a PBS point. Just PM me and have it on your WL. ISBN #0553013602.
