I'm interested in the Piers Anthony books. Just let me know what you want in return. (Perhaps a Y: The Last Man trade paperback?)

Dean said...

BC, let me get the Stackpoles for Vin. Cash or kind is fine with me. Let me either way, thanks :)

banzai cat said...

charles: Not a problem though alas, am not planning in getting comics at the mo. Unless you're going to trade me a COMPLETE set of Y:The Last Man TPBs? :-D

dean: Alrighty, what can you offer? ;-) The first three Stsackpole books are actually in good condition; the last 2 are a bit battered.

Anyway, youse people just tell me how and when. :-)

Charles said...

I could also get the Edding's books if no one's biting. =)

Dean said...

Cash is simplest. Or you can wait for our next book culling and take your pick :)

I'm meeting Banzai on Sunday Dean. Want me to get the books for you and drop it off at your condo? - Charles

banzai cat said...

charles: You haven't read Eddings already?

dean: What Charles said. And cash is fine... er, when's your next culling again? ;-)

Charles said...

I've read Eddings but I can always give the books to someone else. =)

Der Fuhrer said...

I really want to get Grimwood, Moore and Wheeler. The problem is on how to pick them up. Hehehe

banzai cat said...

charles: Really? Well, I could always get you the first Eddings books if you're reaaaally interested...

That way your friend can splurge on an Eddings-fest. ;-)

fuhrer: Oy. Sorry man, but someone else scored first on Grimwood and Moore. But can reserve the Wheeler for you if you like...

Dean said...

BC - I'll take the Aimee Bender as well. No schedule for our culling yet though.

Charles - Can you pick up the books from BC and I'll reimburse? If it's not okay, no prob. Bc and I will work something out. :)

Charles said...

Dean: no problem. =)

Banzai: Just send me the books you don't want and I'll gladly pay for them.

banzai cat said...

dean: Check! :-)

charles: See ya later also! :-)

Der Fuhrer said...

banzai cat said...

Not a problem :-)

I also reserved Arcanum for you.

Der Fuhrer said...

banzai cat said...
