Our school did a bit of re-modeling this summer and while cleaning out our rooms, our English department found several sets of brand new novels in the back of a closet.  None of these are books we teach, and we already have our curriculum written (They go with the textbooks from two books ago, before any of us, who all started here thee years ago were here, I think...).  I asked my Principal what to do with them and he said "whatever you want" so I mentioned posting them here and he said go for it.  These books are all permabound and look like they have never been used.  The covers are undamaged, and they do not have our school name stamped in the front cover (with the exception of A Midsummer Night's Dream), but they do have the "issued to" bookplate so that you can check them out to your students.  Please send me a PM and post here if you are interested.
