Letting go of a lot of "stuff", I picked up about 20 uncorrected proofs at bookstores and yard sales.  Most are mysteries, some are fairly well known authors.  If you are interested I can send you a list of the titles.  I will charge 1 credit each but need to ship at least 5 to make it worth the postage.  I am willing to do 3 for 2 if you want to get all of them.  I have some signed books, I will toss one in with any order, they are not uncorrected proofs, it will be an added bonus - my choice

It would probably do you better to post your list of titles, rather than ask people to message you. There's also an entire thread for this topic which many people check frequently. 

Also, just FYI, you say you need to ship 5 books out at a time, for 1 credit each. 5 credits for 5 books people can't repost may be something you want to rethink, esp if they are not WL books. And 3 for 2 at 1 each? Really confusing. Since you require 5 at a time, that's 12 books or something? 

Best of luck, I wish you had memoirs or bios that were on my WL, as I'd definitely take you up on it, I always want more things from my WL! :-)

ETA: I moved here from Raleigh about 5 years ago :-)

I'm sorry this is so confusing, I could put them on Ebay and see how they go, but I decided to put them here for a couple of reasons:

1/ I feel that this is a group that would appreciate novels in this unique form

2/ I would rather they end up with one of my fellow readers than in a bookstore

Most of these I purchased 20 years back, the authors were generally not real well known, but had a few books under there belt, there are some exceptions here as you will see from the list.  I have very much enjoyed reading these, and it has often read to me branching out and buying more books from a new author.  

To clarify, I will send 5 for 5 credits.  15 for 10 - if at the end I just have a few left, we can bargin.  Enjoy!

John, here is the link for the ARC thread...you might have good luck there since most people look there for ARCs specifically.  Just check out the "rules" in the very first post!
