Can you believe it's May already??!!

Still want to keep this thread going as there seems to be enough interest in it, so here goes.....

Here's my list. Feel free to post your own. 

I'd love a deal on any of the following: I've updated my list, deleted those I've received and added some new ones.  If any of these happen to be on the club wishlist, please disregard them. Can you help me out?

Lisa Jackson

Deep Freeze

Fatal Burn      

Mary Higgins Clark

Where Are You Now?

Faye Kellerman

The Garden of Evil and Other Delights          

Patricia Gaffney

 Forever and Ever

Sweet Everlasting     Wild At Heart

Margaret Maron

 Winter's Child       Bootlegger's Daughter

Heather Graham

Never Say Die               

 James Patterson/Andrew Gross

 7th Heaven     

Tami Hoag

Taken By Storm      The Last White Knight

Kay Hooper

 C.J.'s Fate

Susan Wiggs

The Drifter      

I know the list in long and I actually have others to add when some of these are found. There are just too many good authors who write terrific books and I want to read them all!!

 2 for 1 or better would be great. PM me with any that you've got, combinations are fine. I prefer paperbacks.

 I'm always willing to make deals, 3 for 1 or 5 for 2 on paperbacks, 2 for 1 on hardbacks.  Check my shelf.  I'm now a Boxer, too.  All my books come from a smoke-free home, but we do have two cats.

Just finished reading:  Double Take by Catherine Coulter, Day of Atonement by Faye Kellerman, Murder At The FBI by Margaret Truman, Last Words by Mariah Stewart

 Currently reading:  Last Man Standing by David Baldacci

Looking for:

---Role playing books. 

Some (Nobilis) I don't need a deal at all on.  Others (older editions of major systems, such as White Wolf, AD&D, etc) I want good deals on.  I prefer the smaller systems that haven't been through a zillion editions.

--Sunday-funny type books.

I have a lot of these already, but there are lots I don't.  Mainly looking for non-mass-market sized books; I've just found most strips I am interested in come in different formats.  Again, some I want deals on, some I'll pay a credit each. Depends on the strip.

--Solve it Yourself Mysteries

Think Encyclopedia Brown, but also the grown-up versions (though EB is fine--often those are better written than the grown up versions. :P).  Also Two minute, Five minute, harder ones.  Prefer solve-its not logic puzzles.  I'm looking for deals on these, because I eat through them so fast and most are quite thin.
