Still looking for:

  1. Beginner and intermediate trumpet and music theory books for Cosmic Jr.
  2. Swimming with the Dead : An Underwater Investigation :: Kathy Brandt - this book is the first in a series, I have the rest of the series waiting on my TBR pile and I am first on the waiting list (and have been for months).  All the books have waiting lists, so I'm "gumming up the works" but I hate to read a series out of order.  No deal required on this one, I have it on autorequest.

Looking for the first couple of Jack Reacher by Lee Child.  I'd like to get my dad started on this series and would like to have the first two or three sent to him in one package.  Doesn't necessarily need to be a deal.

    Always looking for books dealing with Scottish History, (Fiction or Non) especially book dealing with the end of the Jacobite Rebellion (NO ROMANCE PLEASE)

    Also looking for deals on Cycling for my brother. (I would prefer it if they were part of a deal since I don't think my brother is worth a full credit!)

    Would LOVE to find: David Balfour by Robert Louis Stevenson. This is the sequel to his book Kidnapped. It has an alternate title: Catriona. I would love to get a deal on this book (2 for 1 or better is fine)

    I'm looking for a children's book called My Horse.  It is part of a set (My Sheep, My Cow, My Chicken) - my daughter has the rest, and I would like to find the fourth book for her.  No author is listed on the other books, and their ISBN #s don't show up in the system, so I can't add it to my wish list.  The book is small (5 x 5), with a blue foam cover with a small velcro "latch" that holds the covers closed.  No deal necessary - if you post it, PM me and I will order it.   Thanks!

    I'm looking for deals, as always, on Murder She Wrote books.  If you have two or more on your shelf please shoot me a PM. I'm particularly looking for Murder in Moscow and Destination Murder so if you have those and are willing to do a 2-for-1 let me know.

    Or if you just have one MSW and are willing to do a 2-for-1 on your other books let me know. 

     Thanks!
