WTS Lot of 30 (mostly) Gothic paperbacks $25
OK, I went through and alphabetized my collection and found quite a few doubles (and some copies of the same book with different titles). To these I added some that I have read and don't care to read again. Format is author - title - description. All of these are 20 to 30 years old. The pages have darkened, gotten brittle, etc. Anything else I have tried to note. Bookstore stamps are usually on the back of the front cover, prices are usually in pencil. Shipping is $5 for Media Mail and delivery confirmation inside the US. Reply in PM or in thread. Paypal for payment.
