Please help me make room for baby! I don't have a ton of books, but still need to clear them off my shelf.

I think of these books as sleeper classics: beautifully-written gems by well-regarded authors, that have faded from the best-seller lists but are still worthy reads:

- Paradise, by (Nobel Prize-winner) Toni Morrison

- Anil's Ghost, by Michael Ondaatje (author of The English Patient)

- The Gathering, by Anne Enright (winner of the Man Booker Prize)

- The Map of Love, by Ahdaf Soueif  (shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize; especially great read for anyone trying to learn more about modern Egypt!)

- The Butcher Boy, by Patrick McCabe (shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize) (PLEASE NOTE this may be an advance reader copy; it's in excellent condition, as are all the books)

 

Pick 3 of the above for credit, then PM me to get the others free, PLUS pick up to 3 more books on my bookshelf for FREE!! 

Special deal: You can take ALL the books on my bookshelf for just 4 credits!

Thanks for looking  : )
