I keep adding Nora Roberts (via: a generous friend) but none of them are leaving my bookshelf....I know there is a ton of these books already posted but I am hoping in a deal I can get rid of some of them.  Can anyone help?  Please PM me with any offers.....

I have:

  • Garden Trilogy - Book 2 - Black Rose
  • Irish Trilogy - Book 2 - Tears of the Moon
  • Irish Trilogy - Book 3 - Heart of the Sea
  • Circle Trilogy - Book 1 - Morrigan's Cross
  • By My Side
  • First Impressions
  • The Gift (3 in 1 book)

Thanks!

You could try being a boxer and exchanging them for other books for your friend or other authors for you.

Have you tried pimping them in the Book Bazzar?

The biggest problem with unloading Nora Roberts books is there are so many of them.  She's a consistent bestseller, so her books are printed by the ton.  I have several that have been on my shelf since I joined.  I think I've gotten exactly one request for a Nora Roberts book in all that time.

 My local UBS always has a ton of NR. Since I try to trade some of the books I get from the swap at the UBS, I don't usually pick up her books here.

You might try Ebay - posting them all together.

heck I couldn't even GIVE AWAY Danielle Steel...and believe me I tried! I think I'm pulling out the few I liked at all and dumping the rest..even my UBS doesn't want them!

Nora Roberts has a ton of titles but at least hers are pretty much good stories (IMO) but I've only gotten them as part of deals. And I think some are a lot better than others..I still 'need' to read that trilogy about the withces..the first one I didn't like because of a stalker being hinted at and I don't like witchcraft but I feel like I 'need' to read them..also have that trilogy with morrigan's cross Ihaven' read...need to decide if I'm gonna or not and get rid of them if I"m not...

All of you are confirming my thoughts....the Book Bazaar didn't help at all but I haven't ventured into the BOB's yet.  Thanks for all the help but I just may donate them to Goodwill to create some more room for other books that will be requested.

Thanks again!

I wonder if there are just lots of them in the system so they never move?  If they're not gone in a year, I'd donate to your library.
