Update Tue 5/20/08:

Thanks to the 6 people who PM'd me, offering to take in the books. I honestly didn't expect so many responses so quickly. Such book-appreciation restores some of my faith in humanity :)

After a small bit of thought, I decided to simpy send the books to the first person who replied. Sorry to the other folks, but like I said, I'm still impressed that you offered. Thanks.

 

 

The OFFER:

I offer, at my cost, to package and send these books to any member who will make a reasonable attempt to either give them a good home or find them a good home. I will pay for the shipping, and you will not be charged any book credits, but you must agree to take all the books, and to try to take care of them.

WHY:

Unfortunately, I need to downsize my bookshelf. I've had these books posted on paperbackswap for several  months, and had no takers. I could just give the books to the library, but I think they often throw away extraneous paperbacks, so I'd rather give them to someone who might better appreciate them.

Small Warning:

Since I've had no takers on these books, they are apparently unpopular, despite the fact that I've read and (mostly) enjoyed them. You can take a look at my bookshelf for a list of the 35 titles.

You should investigate www.bookcrossing.com.  You can register books, and give them away.  Then you can get an email each time some new owner adds a journal entry to one of them.  What you are offering is known as a RABCK on that site.

PS - There's some decent books in your list.  Unfortunately, I already own about 20 of your 35.  ;)
