Choose one free with any order from my shelf!  Please PM me with what you ordered and your choice from below:


Mountain Laurel (Jude Deveraux) - Hardback with no DJ, very light stain on the edge of the pages.

Kiss the Girls (James Patterson) - a few wavy pages

Forbidden Fruit (Erica Spindler) - a little water damage, not bad.

Love's Daring Dream (Patricia Matthews) - Older book, missing front cover.

I Marry You Because...(Various) - Nothing wrong with this book, it is really just too small to be worth a credit IMO.  Filled with quotes and sayings, perfect for finding little additions to ceremonies, invitations, etc.

The Endearment (LaVyrle Spencer) - some liquid damage, slight stain, a chunck of pages has detached near the cover, but I think they are all there - I will check again before sending.

Bygones (Lavyrle Spencer) - Just pretty beat up, but readable.

Mommy Dearest (Christina Crawford) - Dust jacket is present but pretty torn up.  Otherwise in decent shape.

A Day Late and A Dollar Short (Terry McMillan) - Library discard, a corner of the dj is cut out, discard written across the top of the pages.  Totally readable.

What to Expect When You Are Expecting (Third Edition) - A small amount of water damage on the last part of the book and the back cover.  Completely readable.

Times To Remember (Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy) - Missing front cover

Love's Perfect Dream (Caroline Bourne) - No serious damage, just been read a lot of times.

Pirate (Fabio) - Showing wear, still readable.

All About Passion (Stephanie Laurens) - some water damage

Midsummer Magic (Catherine Coulter) - some water damage

The Dragon's Bride (Jo Beverley) - some water damage

The following freebies are all quite old:

Heart Throbs (Various) - A complilation of "enduring" stories, pretty worn

The River Road (Frances Parkinson Keyes) - the cover on the spine is gone, but the binding is solid.

Before the Sun Goes Down (Elizabeth Metzger Howard) - a little water damage, some damage and wear on cover, but very readable.

Silver Slippers (Temple Bailey) - cover a little loose

Above Suspicion (Helen MacInnes) -  just very old

Gone For Soldiers by Jeff Shaara.  Nice trade-sized.  Sat it down next to a sweating glass of iced tea and it soaked up the dribble.  Top back corner and about last 50 pages.  Otherwise, fine.

After Life by John Edward.  I don't know what you call it...cleaved?  Cracked?  Between the "also by..." page and the title page, the spine is ripped top to bottom,  but everything is perfectly attached still.  Also, it is an ex-library book with a nice plastic cover for protection.  Hardcover. 

Order any book from my shelf and get one of these free.  Please PM me your choice.

I have a copy of Before Women Had Wings by Connie Mae Fowler.  It looks beautfiul, tight binding and clean cover, but there are a few pages in the middle of the book with some minor water damage at the top.  I didn't notice it at all until I got to the those pages while reading the story. The slight waving of the pages had to be caused by water as there is no staining on any of the pages.  It does not interfere with the text at all.  Free with an order from my shelf.
