Hi, gang -

My sister homeschools my niece who has read 2 or 3 Trixie Belden books and is now obsessed.  (This is a Very Good Thing, since my niece is only now beginning to enjoy reading.)

So - does anyone have any Trixie Belden books they'd be willing to part with, preferably at a pretty decent deal?  I'm probably just going to dump them all on my sister and let her dole them out as "rewards" for good homeschool behavior.  It amazes me (and pleases me to no end!!!) that my niece will actually be motivated by books she likes!  Who knows - she may be a future PBS swapper!

Oh, I read those as a kid.  My mother's copies, no less...she was also obsessed!  She's got the whole set at her house waiting for her granddaughters.  Hope you find a good deal :-)

You may have to arrange an off-list swap because I bet many of those are beat up ex-library copies that would not pass PBS rules for condition. Or they are just old from private collections and may not pass the rules.

I have some OOP old books that are desired by some HSers that I'm not allowed to post on PBS, due to shelf wear, banged up covers, etc.

If you are willing to take not-great condition copies perhaps state that and ask people to PM you if they have any they are willing to part wtih them you can pay them with a credit via the buddy system. Just an idea.
