My Library List -- October 2007 Edition

Postby Dennis Cayton on Mon Oct 01, 2007 7:55 am

Hello Checker Friends,

Here goes the October 2007 edition of my library list.

Everything listed in the September 2007 edition is still for sale in the October 2007 edition.

In other words, there were no new sales last month.

The only difference in my September list and my October list is that I am now offering my entire library for sale in a lump sum of $300.

Besides that, everything is still for sale on a BEST OFFER basis.

In regard to my rent situation I described briefly last month, I was able to find the money to pay my September rent. However, there is no money to be found for my October rent.

I have been informed that I will be given an official "Pay Or Vacate" notice if I am unable to pay my rent by October 5th. If I am unable to pay my rent by October 10th, I will be taken to court, where I will be liable for the October rent, a 10% late fee, and court costs. If I am unable to pay all of the above by then, I could be out on the street on the very next day.

Therefore, this could be my very last ad on this site. I don't think I could take my computer to the local homeless shelter. I have no place else to go.

Hopefully, this is only a temporary situation. I am presently working with my local state disability agency in pursuit of training for a new career.

It is my goal to get back on my feet and start attending ACF National Tournaments once again.

What I wrote above is not intended to be a pity party and draw sympathy. It's just an accurate description of how things are for me at the present time.

So, anything you are willing to buy would be eternally and gratefully appreciated.

Without further ado, here goes the October 2007 edition of all of the checker literature I have left for sale:
_____

Hello Checker Friends:

This post contains a complete list of the checker books and publications I have left for sale.

This October 2007 edition of my library list contains the following two announcements:

1) ALL PRICES LISTED BELOW ARE NOW NULL AND VOID. Make me your BEST OFFER on anything you might want. All I ask is that you pay all of the postage and shipping costs and allow me to make a little bit of profit on anything you decide to buy.

2) I will sell the entire contents of what is left of my library for one lump sum of $300. Once again, I will need help with the postage and shipping.

Here goes my list:

MAGAZINE COLLECTIONS

The American Checker Federation Bulletion -- The Official Publication Of The American Checker Federation.

In summary:

***I have 90 complete issues with no pages missing. The cost of any one complete issue is now one dollar ($1.00) each.

***I have 42 incomplete issues with one or more pages missing. None of the national tournament game pages are missing. Instead, the pages which are missing include the preliminary pages, such as the pages providing match and tournament news, mail play ladders, books for sale, and so on. The cost of any one of these incomplete issues is fifty cents ($0.50) each.

***The cost of ordering all 132 copies of my ACFBs is eighty dollars ($80.00), plus postage and shipping costs.
