        I ws away for the weekend and forgot about starting this!

NOW, my oldest is  Good Grief...Third Grade, posted 10/17/07.  (all books on Shelf posted prior to 9/1/08 are two-for-one).

Well, mine is still The Painted House by John Grisham, TAKEN!posted 10/15/07 . Yes, I know. Last month I said it was going to THE DUMP, but I just couldn't do it....Surely there is someone out there that hasn't read it, and would like my copy with a choice of another book from my Shelf for free?  PM me if interested.........


When you list your oldest book, list the date you posted it.  Also, this thread really does get results!  If your book gets ordered, update  with your next oldest book..

Mine is Mary,Mary by James Patterson. I posted it back when I first signed up in October 2007. In fact, this is the last of my original 10 posted books.

Order this book and pick another off my shelf free, plus an unpostable.

I've had the following books on my shelf since April of 2007, and I want them out of my house!!!  So I've bundled them - each bundle for 1 credit.

Jurassic Park :: Michael Crichton AND The Hot Zone : A Terrifying True Story :: Richard Preston (plus, PM me for your choice of several unpostable Dean Koontz books to be added to the bundle).

Celebrating Life as Grandparents :: Roger Sonnenberg AND Moments for Fathers ("Moments for" Series) :: Robert Strand AND Moments for Mothers ("Moments for" Series) :: Robert Strand

The Living Death; Alzheimer's In America :: Guy Lushin AND Sometimes God Has a Kid's Face: The Story of America's Exploited Street Kids :: Bruce Ritter

Note to self:  go home and check books that were posted over a year ago to make sure I knew what I was doing and no unpostables slipped in - LOL!!

Mine aren't that old, but I would like it if someone would be interested in ordering my last three.  :)  I have the money now to ship them out and would love to ship them to whoever wants them - either a 2 for 1 or a credit each.  Please, oh please, oh please! LOL! :)

Oldest one is now gone--Thanks Jane for your order!  Offer still stands on the other book.
