This is a very long post. You may remember when I posted that I had lost my friend Mike Hardouin. Mike had more than 50 books and I am now selling them for Mike's wife. Nearly all of Mike's books are in excellent, near new to pristine condition. Unless otherwise noted, you can assume they are. Each book will be sold with an additional $2.50 shipping fee to cover the postage. I will accept the first sale on each item and it will be shipped promptly. PayPal to a friend would be desired as I am attempting to get best value for each item to pass along to MIke's wife. Many of the books are Hardbound (HB) and the remainder are paperback (PB).

As you can imagine, the books are selling quickly. I'll be heading to the Post Office on Friday morning to get book boxes and I hope to have all books mailed on either Saturday or Monday at the latest. Thanks, everyone.
