For Sale…Dear America Books/ Royal Dear America books

Hello all!

I have been going through my humongous stacks of Dear America and Royal Dear America books, trying to pass along the ones that are not ‘necessary’ or are ‘excess’ to my collection. It’s true that I have loved this series, and I would often buy whatever copies of them that I could find because I loved them – the look, the stories, the history. But it has come time to get rid of some of them and so I have cut my collection in half and now offer YOU some! They’re all good, don’t get me wrong; I just don’t need them all.
I took pictures of the stack I am getting rid of, but alas my camera has chosen to be fickle again and won’t upload them, so I’m afraid you’ll have to get by with just the titles and pictures off google if I can manage that.

If you are interested in any, or multiple (or all!) of these books, just comment w/ your email address (it won’t be published) and we can figure out the price of it – I’m definitely not asking much at all; I just want to pass these along. And then if you are interested in some, I can send you pictures of the books you want so you can see the condition of them. And if you have any questions, please do ask. :)
