Offer: 2 Boxes of Books

User name: sleepygoof8784
Email: sleepygoof8784 at gmail dot com
Examples of my work: N/A
What I'm offering: 2 boxes of gently used books. I'm the only reader and I take excellent care of my books. Many have not even been creased.

First box will contain romance (from general to at least 2 erotica) as well as some general fiction (non-romance)that have been on the Best Seller list in the last 10 years.

The second box will be slightly smaller and contain political/historical/gender issues/women's history books. These will be my favorites or books I read in classes and no longer need (I have a BA in poli sci and history and an MA in history-my focus was American West and gender).

Both boxes for the same bidder, sent in separate months. If bidding goes higher I will include a few new books as well that are related to the topics. If your not interested in the non fiction books I can omit them too, depending on bidders preference.

I will pay shipping (including international) but will send them either flat rate or media mail so may take a bit longer to arrive.
Starting bid:$5

Re: Offer: 2 Boxes of Books

You've won this auction. Please make your donation and forward your
receipt to the offeror, unless you're giving a v-gift. Cheers. (NB:
Your donation will be in NZD unless you buy a V-gift. You may want to
convert your bid from USD to NZD using this
so that you are not donating less than you pledged.

Re: Offer: 2 Boxes of Books

Please let me know (by replying to this comment) when you receive
