I didn't get around to listing a sale this summer, so this one is TWICE as big! Rules are the same as always: Media mail shipping is $2 for the first book and $1 for each additional. If you buy a few, I'll estimate a cost -- I'm not trying to make a buck off shipping. Outside the US, please contact me for a shipping quote. Payment by cash, MO, check or Paypal -- please add 50 cents when using Paypal to defray transaction cost. Abbreviations are as follows: EX- excellent condition, VG- very good, G- good, F- fair, PB - paperback, HC - hardcover. Please post your orders as replies to this thread, so that others can see which books have been spoken for. I will PM you within 24 hours with cost including shipping and payment information. I almost always ship within 1 business day of receiving payment. Hope you see something you like!!
