I have a number of German novels - chick lit and some historic bestsellers - on my bookshelf.

I am willing to do 2-for-1 or 5-for-3 deals. I just need room on my shelves :-)

Happy browsing!

I am moving at the end of the month and have a box of books that need to go before then! I am offering a 2 for 1 deal for THIS WEEK only (July 13th-19th). In addition to a few books in English, I also have some Spanish and Italian books at various levels. In addition to adult novels, there are several that might work better for language learners:

One is an easy reader designed specifically for language learners:

Caperucita en Manhattan (Spanish)

Two are children's chapter books (I'd say for age 9-12 or so):

El misterio Velázquez (Spanish)

Cara Camilla, nessuno mi capisce... (Italian)

One is an edition of a classic work aimed for upper-level language students, with words defined in English on the side and notes:

El burlador de Sevilla (Spanish)

I also have one unpostable that I will throw in with any order (in addition to your freebie):

Cronaca familiare (Italian) - Vasco Pratolini

It's this edition:

It's a little beat up and has writing on a couple of pages, but is still in one piece and perfectly readable. It's an edition designed for use in high schools, with comprehension questions and an Italian-English glossary in the back, so it might be good for someone who is learning Italian.

Please PM me with the freebie you would like when you make your order.

I have the audiobook (CD) for the graded, A1-level German reader "Auf Der Suche Nach Toby" (ISBN: 978-8853013378) available for 1 credit.

It is surprisingly well-produced and entertaining for the level of language used.

It is sold as a book/cd combo which is why I have the CD listed here.  (On Amazon the book with CD are selling for $16 + shipping, so this would be a great way to sample readers from another company.)

It'll ship in the original papersleeve it came in.  Just PM me if you're interested or have any questions! :)

I have a big stack of paperbacks with a few hardcovers of an assortment of titles by the mystery/thriller writers Lee Child, Harlan Coben, Lawrence Block, Steve Hamilton, T. Jefferson Parker and Kent Harrington - and the science fiction/fantasy writer Dan Simmons.  Mostly Japanese but some Spanish, French and Italian language titles.  They're all unread and have their dust jackets and, where noted, sometimes the Japanese titles are broken into two paperbacks. I don't want to be compensated for these but if you want a bunch, a few gifted credits to cover shipping costs wouldn't go unappreciated! ;) Thanks!
