Wow.. what a gem!  I would even think twice about getting this for free on Freecycle... not worth the gas money to go get it!

LOL. I love when a book is described as having an old book smell instead of moldy.

And I doubt they are going to get any negative feedback! Like what, you're gonna complain because the books aren't as crummy as described??? hahahaha

Did anyone check "seller's other items"?  5 pairs of women's undies "new without tags" ... yeah, right ..... 

Eww!

Oh, and, um, staying on topic ... um ... ok, I can't make this relate to PBS.  Sorry for the hijack ...

At least they were honest about the book condition, not like some here who have unpostables on their shelf and then say "you're too picky"

Is it just me, or is Flik flipping the finger in the face of prospective buyers?

From the same ebay seller...another great group...these also smell of smoke !

Description: This is a lot of 20 well used, worn paperback books in acceptable reading condition. All have creased,  slanted spines, worn covers with creases, tears and edgewear. Many have a stamp on top page edges or names inside and some have loose bindings. They are from an estate sale and smell of smoke.

Check this one and here's what it says near the end of the seller's description. This is the same seller. lol

I do not notice any odor but I will tell you that I don't have the best smeller in the world.

And the only question that keeps going through my mind, following the paths in this thread, is "are any of them commenting on odors of the underwear"?

***thinking to myself that I really need to quit clicking on this thread....
