I don't at the moment, but I have a tip for you on finding such deals, if you don't have any luck with this request.  I have had good luck with finding a book I want by searching and ordering out of the FIFO system.  Then take a look at the member's shelf who has the book you want, and see if there is anything else you'd like.  If there is, send the member a polite PM and ask if they would be willing to give you a deal- make them an offer, such as 2 for 1.  As I said, I have had good luck using this approach, and you certainly have nothing to lose by asking.

By the way, if you're looking for local fishing books, look at the one on my wish list- according to the reviews at Amazon, this is the Oregon fishing bible.  The one on my wish list is the 10th edition, but I found the 9th edition for $10 at the Book Bin in downtown Salem, and I think they had other copies.  I also picked up the Flyfishers Guide to Oregon by John Huber there for fairly cheap.  Good luck.
