Book search! (ETA)

I'm trying to fill out a physical, hardbound book collection of the Please Don't Tell My Parents series by Richard Roberts (his publisher went belly up and there's been a rush on the books by resellers who are jacking up the prices for the books to an alarming degree). Does anyone have the following books they'd be willing to sell/trade/give?

  • Please Don't Tell My Parents I've Got Henchman

  • Please Don't Tell My Parents I Have a Nemesis

  • Please Don't Tell My Parents You Believe Her This may have only been released as an Audio CD; (ETA) I need it as a hardback if it exists; I found the softback. (ETA II) I actually need this in HB and PB forms if they exist.

  • I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence

As a completionist, I am freaking out that I've not yet got all the hard copies! *cries*

We couldn't afford to buy 'romances' as my dad referred to any fiction book, when I was growing up. My mom wasn't ever a a reader so there wasn't much support from that side. The library was my friend. When I could finally afford to buy my own books, I bought paperbacks. Over the years the cost keep rising however. Eventually I DID buy some hardcovers esp once I started frequenting second hand book stores. When I was happy, I bought a book. When I was sad ... I bought a book. :)

The last series I reread from start to finish was the Donna Andrews bird titled mystery series ie. "Crouching Buzzard Leaping Loon". I may pick up the Jean Auel "Earth's Children" series next. And one day, I really SHOULD read the actual Harry Potter series. I stopped with #4 cause I was going to wait for the entire series to come out. Problem is, the fanfic is so good, I don't know that I want to. Esp the new 'sequels'.

There are SO many good series that I want to reread that I don't have time to read any new books. :)

You know, Shog and I never did finish the last act of Cursed Child, which is fanfiction as far as I'm concerned (and not as good as I'm used to reading :P). I think the core Potter books are worth a read . . . .

When I was happy, I bought a book. When I was sad ... I bought a book. :)

This is familiar to me. :D

I'm going to add the Andrews series to my list; it looks fun!
