Re: FSH - Book of Secrets, Becker/Roth, Conway

Updated with some lower prices (see original post) and a note that I've now listed Sonata on ebay. I'm thinking of moving several items on the list over to eBay Thursday night, so if you're on the fence, best to contact me now if you're interested.

Many thanks for looking!

Doing a bump to move this back up to the top because of some new info added, plus a reminder that the 52 Memories auction ends Sunday night.
