Take one or both with an order from my bookshelf: 

 The 5th Horseman by James Patterson (paperback). It has liquid damage that affects ONE little page. Maybe it isnt water damage, maybe just a wrinkly page. But I take no chances.

Organize Yourself! by Ronni Eisenberg. Little bit of liquid damage that is very light.

    UNPOSTABLE BOOK DEALS...these books are free with another order from my bookshelf...they are not re-postable by PBS standards, but are very readable. 1 book order = one freebie.

    The Last Judgement by Iain Pears  Mass Mkt Pbk, ISBN 0425171485 also has minor wavy pages/?water damage mid-book. on a few pages. Also a small brown liquidy stain (looks like coffee) on the inside front cover.

    Death of a Colonial by Bruce Alexander, Mass Mkt Pbk, ISBN 0425177025, has what looks like a few animal teeth marks on the cover. Only a couple of the indentations actually make it through the cover itself and the pages of the book aren't affected at all. Otherwise the book is in great shape--but I can't see posting a book that has been gnawed on! LOL

    Please PM me before ordering a book and let me know you want one of the freebies, then I'll pm you back to let you know you "won" the freebie (it's first come, first served) and can select a book from my shelf. Otherwise it may need to lead to cancelling orders if more than one person tries for the same deal at the same time.
