BOOK SALE--LAST UPDATE

Here's a consolidated list of everything that's still available. If it disappeared from the old list, it has already sold. I'll continue to use this particular blog post to mark what has sold for the next couple of weeks, and then we'll close it down and we'll sell the rest on Amazon. THANKS for your orders. We've made about $1,000 from the sale so far, and, more importantly, gotten a lot of books out of the house and to good homes.

A few notes

(1) We've slashed prices on a few more things, as marked in bold.
(2) Having just received 10 copies of an Eos fall sampler (shudder--more books in the house! arggh!), the first 10 people to order from now on will receive this free.
(3) The next person to order will get Cat Magic and the Tolkien book (see below) free.


Terms are as follows: payment by paypal to vanderworld@hotmail.com or check or money order made out to me sent to POB 4248, Tallahassee, FL 32315. Shipping in the US (media mail)/Canada (surface) is free on orders $12 and over. Otherwise, it depends on how much you order, how we’re shipping it, and where we’re shipping it. Just email us about what you want to buy at vanderworld@hotmail.com and we’ll let you know if the books you want are still available and the shipping cost.

All books should be in good-as-new condition (some haven’t been read) unless otherwise noted.

Thanks!
Jeff

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on mens male enhancement reviews.

Hi, I was just out blog surfing for detailed info on building self esteem when I ended up on your page. Obviously I ended up a little off base, but I am certainly glad I did. If you wouldn't mind, I would like to post your link on my "favorites" page. Should you ever need it, there is valuable information on my site about building self esteem.
