    Default Young Adult Horse books **still some available***

    Note from 10/08: all boxes are shipped or leaving tomorrow and there are still books available. I'll try to do a consolidation post later but do let me know if you wanted some books and haven't gotten any....


    Asking for cost of postage only; the "if it fits it ships" small boxes will fit most of these but they are $5.80. Good news is there is no extra cost for weight. I am willing to buy padded envelopes and get postage for actual weight if you prefer but I have no idea how much those will be and the further away you are I know it goes up.

    If you get multiples, the IIFIS option is wonderful as you can get bunches in the $10 to $12 boxes, no matter the weight!

    I'll be adding titles as I continue to unpack. These are all hardcovers, I didn't check which had dustjackets, sorry. Most are quite old, some were my mom's (40's/50's) some were mine (70s) and some I picked up second hand.


    Spook, the Mustang by Harlan Thompson

    Amy and the Sorrel Summer by Laura Fisher (LIBRARY BOOK)

    The Roan COlt by Reginald Ottley TAKEN

    A Blue For Alli by Nancy Hartwell (LIBRARY BOOK) TAKEN

    Wanted! A Horse! by Babbis Friis

    Ride Gaucho by Bruce Grant (this one does have a DJ)

    Gift Horse by James Summers (LIBRARY BOOK)

    Runaway Pony, Runaway Dog by Ruth & Latrobe Carroll

    You can message me here or email me at ebeep99 at yahoo dot com (obviously fix that addy first )

    I'm offline when I'm not at work and am scheduled Mon-THurs 8 to 6 through the end of August. I promise to answer everyone tho, as soon as I can get online!


    **NOTE: One person has already asked about taking them all but your PM got lost in the technical problems. I'd love to share so everyone gets some but since there are many more to list I can hold what you like until you get a bigger box full if you want

    That was me who PMd you. Very kind of you to want to spread the goods around. This is something I did years ago when I was trying to give away a lot of books here that I'd bought on eBay (IIRC I bought a large lot of books only to get one or two specific titles that were included and wasn't particularly interested in the rest).

    I'll pass on the ones listed here and wait for you to list all the Paul Brown books.

    Thank you Beth!!
    Everyone is entitled to my opinion.

    Sorry Windsor, Copper's Chance is in the "keep" pile!

    Hopefully more tomorrow... and if you need details on anything just let me know ....

    I won't do a new thread, I'll keep adding them here so keep an eye out!

    ETA: I would volunteer pictures but my camera died unexpectedly and as you can imagine for someone without the internet at home.... I don't own a phone that is also a camera

    Maybe a friend will come get some shots for me....

    I have a horse-crazy teen niece whose family is lower income that would LOVE any books to do with horses. I would be happy to hear more about what you have available. Thanks.

    You should post another thread requesting book donations. I'm guessing a lot of people have good younger-themed horse books they would LOVE to give to someone. I have a couple...

    I'd love to jump into the fray! Not sure how it's working though- are you sending all of them to the one person? or do we request titles we're interested in? I maintain a "horse library" for my students, so am definitely interested. There are a lot of titles I haven't read so would love to borrow them from whoever ends up with them just to read them!
    Ah books!

    thathorse, just PM me the ones you are interested in and I'll get you a mailer together... then I'll just need you to pay postage. If you want to just get one box, I can hold those you would like until I've posted them all and have a whole set for you. I'll have at least one more list of books and maybe more...

    I hope to share the wealth so I prefer not to send them all to one person if more than one is interested.

    Gotcha. Were there others you wanted from last week? I did get a PM from you but without specifics and I guess my email back didn't make it to you?

    Just read that you are trying to spread the wealth so any that no one wants I'll take them and if its easier just to wait till you are all done and send one box that works for me too. What info should I PM you?
