Free books!!!

Yes, really. It's that time of year again where I weed my bookshelves and remove extra copies of books, books I read and enjoyed and want to pass on, books that weren't my cuppa but might be someone else's, and so on. The books are listed below; all you have to do to claim one (or more) is be the first to comment and ask for it. Claim as many as you like; I pay the shipping, because I love sending my books to happy new homes. If you have questions about any of them I'll be happy to answer if I can, but you should be able to look 'em up on Amazon or GoodReads or heck, just use "the google." Unless otherwise noted, assume they're in very good but not quite new condition. There are even a couple that are like-new, good enough to be a gift.

Really, they're free. No catch. Jump right in, and feel free to spread the word!!

*waves hands and jumps up and down*

Please! Could I have this one?

A Study in Sherlock, edited by Laurie R. King (pb)

I think you should have my address...

It's yours! I have your address, no worries.

I'd love the Grossman Codex, but if that's already gone, I wouldn't mind the cajun cooking recipe cards - I'm a sucker for recipes! Thank you - what a lovely thing to do for your friends list. You're a doll!
Feb. 5th, 2013 02:39 am (UTC)
Both are yours! PM me your address (if you haven't already).
Edit: And I'm so glad you want the recipe cards!! I've been itching to pass them on to someone :)

If you still have them, I'd like: This Book is Overdue: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson (pb) (for my librarian daughter.) I'd also like the Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, all 3 volumes (The Wounded Land, The One Tree, White Gold Wielder)

I'll pm you my addy.
Feb. 5th, 2013 02:41 am (UTC)
You got it. Yay for librarian daughters! I received not one but two copies of this, so this is the extra. I loved it and I'm sure she will too. Stephen R. Donaldson is an amazing writer, glad these are going to a good home.

May I please have Goodnight iPad? I've been eyeballing that book for a while and it would be perfect at my house! Thank you!
Feb. 5th, 2013 02:42 am (UTC)
You may! It's very clever and all too true...

I will admit to being intrigued by the Steampunk Trilogy and, to be honest, I've never read the Sorceror's Stone - I only have the UK book! I also like the sound of Never Seen by Waking Eyes, so if you want to throw those into my pot, I'll give them a good home. But if you've already sent them and I'm being too greedy, tell me to shut up! ;) I just can't resist the lure of good books.
Feb. 9th, 2013 03:22 pm (UTC)
Trip to the post office happens this morning, so nope, I haven't sent yours and will happily add these into it as well :)
Feb. 9th, 2013 03:23 pm (UTC)
You are a STAR! And thank you so, so much. I apologise for my absolute greed, but, but, but, it's books!!! ;) And I loves my preciousesssss, yes I does...
Feb. 10th, 2013 12:46 am (UTC)
If they're still available, I'd like Clean & Green, The Physick Books of Deliverance Dane, New Eves, and the Kitchen Gardener magazines. *feels greedy*
Feb. 10th, 2013 12:57 am (UTC)
Fabulous! You'll *love* the Kitchen Gardener issues, so many wonderful ideas. Makes you want to go out and dig in the dirt :)
Feb. 10th, 2013 01:00 am (UTC)

Thank you so much! :D
