Finally finished going through my office shelves for the 3rd & final time.  I swannee there’s nothing else I can remove….These books are used but in excellent condition. Some don’t even look as if they’ve been read.

Simply Irresistible
After losing her boyfriend and her job, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim her inheritance-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. She sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if she can give the inn the makeover it needs. Enter Jax, a tall, handsome contractor who knows exactly what Maddie needs…

The Sweetest Thing
Helping her sister set up the family inn is just the thing to make Tara forget her ex-husband and focus on her new life. Until she meets a sexy, green-eyed sailor determined to keep her hot, bothered, and in his bed. When her ex reappears, Tara must confront her past and decide what she really wants.

So which book(s) would be your choice?  Do you ever clean out your bookshelves?  What would you never part with?  

I still have the Mary Stewart Arthurian Srs. I got in high school, THE CRYSTAL CAVE,  THE HOLLOW HILLS, THE LAST ENCHANTMENT, & THE WICKED DAY. The dust jackets are a bit worse for wear but I wouldn’t part with them for anything.  There are a few old school bodice rippers from high school too, The Sweet Savage Love series, The Wolf and the Dove, & Love Wild and Fair.  My favorites from those early historical days though are ASHES IN THE WIND and MOONSTRUCK MADNESS.  Those heroines and the risks they took, their strength & independence were so amazing to me.  These will always have a place on my shelves.
