Hi Ross. I would interested in V by Pynchon; Swenson, May. Love Poems. PB, and maybe Undset, Sigrid. Kristin Lavransatter. PB, worn.

I want them for myself not as a book dealer.

Would you take $12 for the three?

Done deal - though I'll have to check postage prices. Email em your address, and I'll check them, then give you my back details if that's good for you.
