Katherine R. (magnoliafly):

All books on my shelf are 2 for 1.

I also have the following books that are unpostable, you can claim one as an additional freebie with any order:

  • Brave New World - Aldous Huxley - ISBN: 0-06-092987-1. Dog chewed off small amount of one corner. Book is underlined extensively. Completely readable and all words are intact.
  • The Rainmaker - John Grisham - ISBN: 044022165x Very used. No water damage, spine is very used. Some fraying at corners. Completely readable though.
  • Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad - ISBN: 0140180907 Cover and index cut with scissors. Introduction and rest of book intact. From the back cover: In Heart of Darkness Conrad unfolds the story of Marlow's search for Mr. Kurtz, the company agent whose 'unlawful soul' has been 'beguiled beyond the bounds of permitted aspirations' in his dealings with the natives of the Belgian Congo. Marlow's adventure involves him in a crucial reappraisal of his own values. It is Kurtz, however, who attains to a vision of the inexpressible, terrifying reality of the heart in this extraordinary exploation of human savagery and despair.
  • The Promise - Chaim Potok - ISBN: 0449239365250 No damage, pages are yellowing due to age. Just as The Chosen summoned up the depths of the commitment that loving fathers make for their sons, Chaim Potok's new novel evokes the promise that the young make to themselves, to their own lives--the obstacles life automatically interposes, and the strength, the intelligence, the daring that must constantly be brought to bear if the promise is to be kept.
  • The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - Carson McCullers (No ISBN) An Oprah Book Club Selection Wear on the front cover and spine. When she was only twenty-three, Carson McCullers's first novel created a literary sensation. She was very special, one of America's superlative writers who conjures up a vision of existence as terrible as it is real, who takes us on shattering voyages into the depths of the spiritual isolation that underlies the human condition. This novel is the work of a supreme artist, Carson McCullers's enduring masterpiece. The heroine is the strange young girl, Mick Kelly. The setting is a small Southern town, the cosmos universal and eternal. The characters are the damned, the voiceless, the rejected. Some fight their loneliness with violence and depravity, Some with sex or drink, and some -- like Mick -- with a quiet, intensely personal search for beauty.
  • Oliver Wiswell - Kenneth Roberts (No ISBN) Roberts continues his vivid and accurate historical fiction with a chronicle of a Loyalist during the American Revolution. It is a rare sympathetic look at the losing side.
