    I just ordered Visions of Emma Blau, and I would love the following books. I have listed them in order of preference.  Forever, Marked Man, Nostradamus & his prophecies, Witch Hunt and The Glass Castle. I have only 1 credit through, so you can decide how many you want to send. I don't think any of them are hardcovers as I am sensitive about weight...thank you for the deal! Mary Lee

    Rita,

    I found several I would like.  I ordered Art Love, Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight and Fung Shui.  I would like Job Survival, The Opposite of Fate, Webster's Secretarial Handbook, Ultimate Chocolate Recipes, Seabiscuit and My Life Among Serial Killers.  If still available, I would also like the unpostable Absalom, Absalom.  This makes the deal a 10 for 3, let me know if this is okay with you.
