My mother-in-law is in Afganistan and I was wondering if anyone has any deals on mysteries, thrillers.  I know she reads Dean Koontz and James Patterson but not sure who else, probably whatever she can get.  I sent her some movies but she was wanting some books as well.  I would prefer paperback because of weight.  Whatever I send will be circulated through others as well.  She is there as a civilian so she doesn't have access to a lot of what the soldiers get.  It is an office setting and she is the only woman so I am guessing that they read the same type.  Anyways, any deals would be great.  I also am a boxer, so I can trade from whatever I have.  Thanks

Mary, take a look at my shelf. I'm a boxer so if there's anything you think she'd like let me know and we'll make a trade!

Happy swapping -- Sue

Hi Mary - I just sent a box of similar books out, but I bet there are some things on my shelf she would like - check it out and PM me for a deal.  I also have a few Murder She Wrote books that I haven't felt quite comfortable posting (postable, but the spines are on the verge of cleaving).  If you think she might like those, we can work them into the deal.

Take a look at my shelf and see if there are things you think she will like.  I have some Koontz posted.  Quite a few other mystery/thrillers.  I'll be happy to do a deal.
