These two books are the last of the 20-some I posted the day I joined. I originally had two Fleming mysteries, but someone took one of them some time ago.

I'm currently running a FIVE for one special. If anyone wants these two, I'll make it SIX for one.

Christie Todd Whitman's biography has been on my shelf since I joined in June 2007.  I am happy to give it away as a freebie with any order from my shelf.  It's a HC, I bought it new and it was only read once, so it is in very good condition.
