kate's November book list

724 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  PACrofter
As promised, here's a list of USED BOOK titles that might be of interest to people on this forum. Bear with me for just a few logistics:

Shipping is 3.50 for the first book and $1 for each additional title. No tax - if you're a PA customer, we'll deduct it from store profit to keep things simple.

If you're interested in a title, send me a message and I will respond with an email that links right in to me at the store - this will speed things up for you. But let me know the title(s), so you have dibs. I will also include the information you'll need to actually make the payment (check or paypal).

I will probably do a better job choosing titles for the December list since I'll have an idea what generates enthusiasm. Plus, we'll start diverting likely titles as they enter the store, so I'll have more at hand. This list represents a handful from the areas in which I was doing some work today.

I will edit the list and mark titles sold once you tell me you're going to purchase it. But take heart, every one of these book titles will show up at the store again, so if you don't get one you want, odds are you'll see it on another month's list.

DJ = there's a dustjacket; SC = softcover, HB = hardback. This is a USED BOOK STORE. Unless indicated otherwise, the books show some signs of having been previously loved.

Also, the bookstore owner suggested that I mention these titles from the Outlanders, a post-apocalyptic series. These are all $3, and s/h for these would only be an additional 50 cents after your first book, not a dollar each as for the others, because these are all smaller. The number preceding each title is its place in the series.

15 Doom Dynasty
16 Tigers of Heaven
17 Purgatory Road
18 Sargasso Plunder

Okay, whew, that's it for this first month. Look, I know there's a lot of areas missing, but that's because I've been snarfing up a lot of them myself. By next month there should be more books about foraging for food, raising poultry and other animals, beekeeping, canning and dehydrating food, and some other topics I've kind of personally wiped out at the store.

Remember, you send me a message with the titles you want, and I'll get back to you and give you an email address to use to wrap things up.

Kate - the edit feature goes away at about 12 hours. This is to keep some tricky folks from starting fights, then going back and making their original posts look like butter wouldn't melt in their mouth,nicey nice.

Either copy the post to a new reply and edit that or PM me and as soon as I can, I'll edit for you.
