    Default Books for sale, list #5

    Books #5

    Please email me to reserve any of these books for you until after all lists are posted. There is one more list after this one, and I will post a revised list with all the books not spoken for.

    Please include your name and address.

    Shipping rates are USPS book rates unless I can find a cheaper way. USPS charges $5 for the first five pounds and $.050 per pound after that, roughly speaking.

    All prices are approx. half the lowest comparable price on BookFinder.com: New & Used Books, Rare Books, Textbooks, Out of Print.

    If the book is rare enough that it doesn't show up on Bookfinder, I've listed my price.
