for pawning off my only Deborah MacGillivray book off on some poor unsuspecting PBSer. 

just mailed it yesterday and it felt like tossing the albatross off my bookshelf!

Your trash could be her treasure, as they saying goes.  Enjoy your lightened load!

Look at it this way, Macgilla Gorilla didn't make any money off the deal. :-)

I have 2 of hers in my TBR pile that I got before finding out she was a hatefilled nutjob.  I think I will end up throwing them away, because I worry that if I trade them here I might make someone else a fan who will then buy more of her books.

Yeah, I know how you feel.  I NEVER throw books away, unless they're really ruined, but in her case, I think I'd have to make an exception:P

lol Katrina -  I really hope not!! 

Willa, I sleep better knowing Macgilla Gorilla (lol) didn't make any profit off of us. the book was only $3.99 to begin with and this will be at least the 3rd PBser to recieve it.

I feel bad that I actually bought her first book new.  It was so boring, I didn't get through more than a chapter or two, so don't worry about sending them out and making more fans for her.  They probably wouldn't.

Exactly my thought, Angie. Any writer so bad she needs to threaten people into praising her books... well, that pretty much sums it up.

(BTW, Kim originated MacGilla Gorilla - I'm just trying to popularize it. ;-) )

That's right.  I did it, and I'm glad I tell ya!  Glad!

*cough*... sorry, just borrowing a line from Jim Carey in The Mask.  But it's a good line..:P  Fits her, don't it?
