I have a whole bunch of damaged books that I would love to find a home for, and will send up to 3 free damaged books with an order from my shelf.  If you're interested, please PM me with the freebie (or freebies) you would like!   This offer stands until the damaged books have all found new homes. 


There is a smoker and a cat in my household, and although the books are in a smoke and cat free area, I can't guarantee that they haven't been exposed to either.   So, if you have conditions for either of these things and it won't bother you if I send you the books, please include that I can disregard your conditions in your PM.  Thanks for looking!!   :)
