Hi guys,

I hope this post is not inappropriate. If so, Mods: please move to the right forum or delete this thread.

Just some background, I was an active chess player a few years ago with the Koala chess club with lots of great memories but I had recently given chess up (!) and so it is a good time to pass my books onto someone else.

There are some "good" books and some "bad" books in the list I'm sure, but they are all in good condition etc

Ebay auction for my books is here (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8376981043). Feel free to bid or else contact me via the Ebay link or this thread. I'd prefer to save the hassle and sell my books to someone here. Cheers

Hi Frank,

Sorry mate! As you'll appreciate this many books are quite heavy and to box them and pack them nicely will probably result in shipping costs of around $15-18 according to Austpost.com.au estimates.

Just bet would be just to reduce the $ amount to bid and include postage in your estimates :)

Ill ask my son whether he wants any books.
He has a couple of scholarships test coming up soon so maybe I will delay him playing too much chess for a lil while.
