I am selling some of my beloved books. I am extremely picky about the conditions of my books so please consider them new (unless otherwise noted.) They are in excellent condition, free from markings, etc. HC is a hardcover book while PB is paperback. I am using abebooks and amazon to help me with pricing. Shipping is extra. If you buy more than one book, I will combine shipping charges and refund you the difference. I won't be making any money from shipping because I'm charging what it costs me to package and ship the book. I guarantee the books will be packaged well. Insurance is extra, but recommended. Unless requested (and for an additional fee of whatever the actual shipping cost is), all books will ship via mixed mail. When a book is sold, I will mark it sold (and as soon as possible). If you have any questions please email me at Egorey99@sbcglobal.net Thanks for looking and for giving my books a good home!
