These are leftover from July:

I currently have three unpostable books. All are VERY readable, just minor damage as noted.

One free damaged book with order of one book off my shelf. PM me before ordering though, in case more than one person wants a particular freebie and I'll let you know if you were the 'winner' and then you can place an order...saves on having to cancel orders and such.

Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came by M.C. Beaton  Mass Market Pbk, ISBN 031298586X has minor wavy pages mid-book on a few pages.  TAKEN

The Last Judgement by Iain Pears  Mass Mkt Pbk, ISBN 0425171485 also has minor wavy pages/?water damage mid-book. on a few pages. Also a small brown liquidy stain (looks like coffee) on the inside front cover.

Death of a Colonial by Bruce Alexander, Mass Mkt Pbk, ISBN 0425177025, has what looks like a few animal teeth marks on the cover. Only a couple of the indentations actually make it through the cover itself and the pages of the book aren't affected at all. Otherwise the book is in great shape--but I can't see posting a book that has been gnawed on! LOL
