None of the titles listed below were available on PBS until I listed them tonight.  (This list is updated from the one I posted last night but is mainly new additions.)


You can find these books on my bookshelf by sorting them by date with the most recent displaying first.  If you can’t locate a book that you want and I noted that I have multiple copies of it, please post to this thread so that a public queue is created for that title.  It’s likely that someone ordered the copy listed and I haven’t had a chance to load a new copy.  I'll try to update the list  to keep it accurate.

If you have any questions about these or the other books from my bookshelf, please either ask it here or send me a PM.  Most of the books on my bookshelf not noted in this post are in very good to new condition though a couple of them are former library books.  If you would like more information about something I haven’t listed here, please contact me.  In some cases I have multiple copies of a title available.  In general, these are noted as such below.  I usually ship every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I use brand new, professional grade mailers and boxes (though I’ve been known to recycle an Amazon box here and there) and will pack your book(s) to help ensure that they aren’t damaged in transit. 

In the interest of clarity, I would like to extend my definition of new:  A new book is one that has not been read, its binding is still square, solid and uncracked.  It is not uncommon for a new book to display the very lightest shelf wear from having been stored on a shelf (like those you might see at B&N)  but it still retains that overwhelming "new" appearance and is suitable for gift giving purposes.  

Get Pooh for free!  As a special bonus to folks who order more than one item from me at a time, I’ll send you a free copy of Pooh's Christmas Gifts!

For the first 3 people ordering 5 or more books I'll include a free copy of:  

Quomodo Invidiosulus Nomine Grinchus Christi Natalem Abrogaverit: How the Grinch Stole Christmas in Latin   ISBN 0865164193


Thank you!
