Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the new Chick Lit Deals thread! :)

This is our new permanent thread for all chick lit deals. I thought this would be easier then making a new one every month and having to bump it over and over. I also thought it would be great to put all of our deals in one spot so we can use the rest of this forum for all other topics. (book discussions, author topics, recommendations, what books we are looking for, etc.)

If you are offering any deals on chick lit books please post them in this thread so we can keep all the chick lit deals easy to find. Also, if you are offering any damaged chick lit book for free you may post that too. If you are no longer offering a deal then please mark through it or delete it.

Don't forget to add this thread to your watch list!


Jennifer :)

-Thanks Robert for helping me make this a sticky thread! We really appreciate it! :)

I am in the midst of decluttering, YIKES!  I recently added books to my shelf, chic lit, women's fiction, general fiction, true crime, autobiographies etc.  So many books, so little time!  I haven't even read them all!

I'm willing to do a 2 for 1, or any other deal you think is reasonable!  Just PM me, I'm really a very nice person!   ;)


ETA:  I should mention that my books live in a home with pets and a smoker (smokes outside, but that smell travels) and most of these books were purchased second hand.
