I hope you don't mind me posting my like-new books here.  They are definitely gift book quality.

The following books, all hardback, all have perfect dust jackets, no stains on the insides and show no bookshelf wear that I can find.  If you would like them for potential gifts just order them from my bookshelf and they will be lovingly packed and sent to you.

I have mainly mysteries & suspense books.

John Grisham                        The Summons

                                                   The Testament

                                                    The Street Lawyer

Maargaret Truman                  Murder At The Washington Tribune

Robin Cook                               Toxin

Clive Cussler                            White Death

James Patterson                   Four Blind Mice

Simon Brett                             Corporate Bodies [Charles Paris]

John Sherwood                      The Sunflower Plot [Celia Grant]

 Amanda Cross                        An Imperfect Spy

Gillian Roberts                          With Friends Like These

                                                      How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Lisa Scottoline                           Rough Justice

Lawrence Sanders                   McNally's Bluff

Patricia Cromwell                     Point of Origin

Steve Martini                               The Jury

Tony Hillerman                             Coyote Waits

I know that there are more gift quality books and I will check the rest of my bookshelf over carefully for more.  All the books have only been read once as they are my husbands and mine and were bought new from a book store or mystery book club.

There are a lot of other books on my bookshelf that show a minimal amount of wear but these are book store quality.  I only have one copy of each book as I do not buy in lots.  All my books are my or Bud's [husband of infinite years] choice

I have an audio copy of Passion of Artemesia by Susan Vreeland. It's never been listened too. In fact it's never been opened.
