I have Watership Down on my reminder list. I already own a copy, but I consider it a "keeper". The problem is mine is completely trashed. I've owned it since about 1980 and read it many times! I don't need another really used copy.

If you have a near new or like new copy of Watership Down on your book shelf, send me a PM and and I'll order it directly. I would prefer the brown/sepia cover edition (like the one shown on the listing at PBS) over another cover, but if it's like new, that's the important part. (and that it come from a non-smoker) I want this book to be on my shelf for another 25 years or longer.

If you have a problem with people wanting new or like-new books, please don't write me! If you have a problem with people wanting books from non-smokers, ditto.  I'm not looking for a quick read to pass along when I'm done. There are 46 copies of this book in the system, I'm just trying to keep from ordering them all one at a time until I get what I'm looking for.  :-)

thanks

My edition is in good condition - but it's not in near new condition.

Good luck with your search!
