Too Many Books

Can you have too many books? I can. I do. All titles below are in excellent used condition. Some may have prices written in them from when I purchased them.

Unless a price is given, all titles are $10 each. Buy 3 for $25. Purchase 4 or more and the price of each book drops to $7.50.
Titles marked with an * count as half, so take two of them for $10 or count two of them as one when bundling.
Titles with prices next to them cannot be bundled and have firm prices.
If you care about the format (hardcover, paperback, trade, etc), please ask. I can also send cover photos if you wish.
