If you ever have an opportunity to visit the shop you know that we mainly have non-fiction, and have been accused of being a "fiction-free zone". At this time, however, we do have 470 titles of literature and fiction that are available as of February 11, 2010 in Walpole, NH.   But, they are all safely stored in boxes because I just don't have enough shelf space, however, if you visit, I will behappy to help you browse the boxes. You may wish to use the "find" function of your browser to search for your favorite author or title. Please note the inventory number in ( ) just before the price to aid in ordering, and do place your order at any time.

Please note:  This section of books is all stored in cartons in my warehouse.  I would like to cut down on the space taken by these boxes.  Order 4 or more titles and I will deduct 25% -- just mention "warehouse clearance" on your order form. Thank you for the help, yours, RAY
