I'm a bit overwhelmed with the number of books in my basement right now.  I have probably a couple hundred (maybe more).  There are boxes of hardback fiction and many stacks of non-fiction.

I don't like shipping hardbacks and there are just too many books anyway.   I'm feeling overwhelmed.  I'd rather do something other than deal with books!   I've a nice stash of credits, which makes the thought of sorting, listing, packing, mailing the books even less appealing.  I'd rather be reading, but I really need the floor space back.    I have not listed these books on PBS, so you aren't getting the non-taken, you're getting the not-gotten to!

So, if you are willing to come get them, I'll give them to you.    They are in Urbana, IL - zip is 61801.    Send me a PM and we can talk about it.

I wish I was! I just gave away around 25 totes of books myself, but I always want more. It's a sickness, lol. Good luck! :-)

Anywhere from 1.5 hours (maybe just an hour from some suburbs) to 3. Depends on where in Chicago. Sent you a PM with the nearby interstates. Here's hoping he comes close enough!

Well, logistics have worked against everyone so far.     Urbana is in central IL.  You will need to come pick the books up--I'm not offering to drive them to you, sorry!

Ranges from 1-3 hours from Chicago area, depending on what part of Chicago area.  About an hour from Springfield.  Less from Danville.

Anyone else interested? :)
