Please have these on auto-wl because I would like to mail them before going OOT for the holidays. I can't risk them rolling over to someone else because I won't be here to re-accept them :-)

Memoir:  Escape by Carolyn Jessop http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780767927567-Escape (96 wishers) perfect condition HC (I just read this and it blew my mind!)

(These aren't bio/memoirs, but maybe someone wants them.)

Broken by Megan Hart http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780373605156-Broken (136 wishers) note: this one is SEVERELY beat up on the cover only. Library discard but the rest of the pages are great. I just wanted you to know so it's not like going to your "display copy" shelf or what not. You can still see the covers, it's just been through the ringer

 Knit Two by Kate Jacobs http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780399155833-Knit+Two (268 wishers) perfect condition HC

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780060852023-Queen+of+Babble+Gets+Hitched (117 wishers) Great condition HC, ex-library

Preference given to multiple requests! I have one cat, no one smokes. Please message me.

I have: Julie and Julia by Julie Powell

Overall, the book is in good condition, but I thought I noticed some extremely small tears to a few of the pages on the top of the pages and then on one page on the bottom. They are so small that when I went back to find them just now, I can't even locate those pages, so I guess I could try posting this FIFO, but I don't want to risk it. It meets PBS criteria otherwise. If anyone is willing to pay 1 credit for it, please PM me.

Here are mine. Would like to send multiples of either these and/or shelf books. I also have freebies, check my profile, include as many as you like. My shelf is still 5 for 2 (not counting WL books). Happy reading:

I have an unpostable copy of

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

 The corner of the front cover is ripped off and there is a tiny amount of water damage to the back cover, but otherwise it's definitley readable. I would like a credit for this. Message me if interested.

I have an unpostable (ARC) of "Loose Girl" by Kerry Cohen. http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781401303495-LOOSE+GIRL+A+MEMOIR+OF+PROMISCUITY

It's in great condition, even has the publisher inserts. The link says it's a hardcover, but as it is an ARC, it's a large soft-cover trade paperback.

I also have an unpostable (ARC) of "Cheer" by Kate Torgovnick, this one really *is* a hardcover (first time I've ever seen a hardcover ARC!):


If you find two items from my shelf you like, I'll send either book along with them for free.I would like one credit each, otherwise-- you can either buddy it to me or let me post it to your WL, but you'll need to send me an email saying you're OK with getting an ARC.

I've got an unpostable copy of I'm Down by Mishna Wolff. http://www.paperbackswap.com/Down-Memoir-Mishna-Wolff/book/0312378556/

Maybe I am being too nit picky, but at the end of the book, there is a Reader's Guide (author interview, etc.) On the very last page of the book, there are very light water stains. Honestly, looks like two drops of water hit that page.

I am asking for one credit. Please PM me and have it on autorequest.

If anyone is interested, I just posted a bunch of memoir books to the general BB forum wishlist thread here: http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=222634&l=25&ls=50#p4678911. It just got to be too much to keep up the listings in multiple places.

I'm currently about midway down on page 3, but that may change :-) Happy reading.

Just listed a lot of really good memoirs in the March 2011 Wishlist Multiples thread

(my post is on page 6)

Click here (I hope???) http://www.paperbackswap.com/MAY-2011-WISHLIST-MULTIPLES/topic/235691/?ls=50#p5002195   for my latest list. I'm unclear how to make an in-post bookmark, so I hope this takes you to where I think it will :-) I have a lot of memoirs on there and other titles, it's just too difficult to keep two lists going and I don't want to disappoint anyone. Happy reading!
