Is anyone interested, for one credit, in this book not previously listed on paperbackswap?  Act now as I will soon leave it on the 'free' book truck at the branch library.

I was working from a list and got the book out to leave on the 'free' book truck at the branch library tomorrow.  I will make entry into Paperbackswap so that others reading all her books can know of it.  The book is uncommon in libraries, issued only in the UK 1963 edition and the American 1964? edition, but is now available as an Ebook, per WorldCat.  Fiction, it deals with life in a public school and the author wrote it at the age of 15.

So I took half a dozen books to the local branch library, put them on the free book truck, and went to read the LA Times and La Opinion.  Within half an hour, all but one were gone.  It was early afternoon and probably three or four dozen people came and went.  It is amazing how stuff disappears, even issues of Nature Biotechnology I sometimes leave and obscure religious books in Spanish someone leaves.  I do often find things that are not posted on Paperbackswap that you guys want.  The book left behind (briefly, I am sure it will be gone today) was the best of the lot in a way, Wiens' Atoll Environment and Ecology, a classic.
