Books for You!

Edited to add: All books have been claimed. But I’m sure there will be more in the coming weeks.

As I’ve mentioned before, the limited space in my home prevents me from keeping all the books I read, so I tend to only hold onto books that I expect to read again. But getting rid of books via Bookmooch and Paperbackswap only leads to more books, and even donating to the library is perilous because when I drop off my donation, I end up leaving with a bag of library books that will keep me from reading the backlog of books on my shelf! So, borrowing Frances’s idea, I thought it would be fun to share some of my cast-offs with you!

Here’s what’s up for grabs.

  • Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace (paperback). Some wear and tear, a few dog-eared pages, and possibly some notes in the margin.
  • 2017 by Olga Slavnikova (paperback). An advance reader copy in very good condition.
  • The Oracles: My Filipino Grandparents in America by Pati Navalta Poblete (paperback). Very good condition.
  • Fables Vol. 12: The Dark Ages by Bill Willingham et al. (paperback). Very good condition.
  • Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (paperback). Penguin popular classics edition. Creased spine and a couple of highlighter marks in the book list on the back page, but otherwise in very good condition.
  • The Fionavar Tapestry (The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire, and The Darkest Road) by Guy Gavriel Kay (paperbacks). These show some wear and tear. Spines are creased, covers are bent or torn, and the pages of The Summer Tree are looking discolored–possibly water-damaged. But I think they’ve got a couple of reads left in them.
  • Nineteen Seventy Four by David Peace (paperback). Very good condition.
  • Prince Rupert’s Teardrop by Lisa Glass (paperback). Very good condition. Signed by the author.

How can you get one of these for your very own? Just follow these three steps:

  1. Choose your book (The Fionavar Tapestry trilogy counts as one).
  2. Leave a comment with your choice so others know the book has been claimed.
  3. E-mail your shipping address to me at teresakayep at yahoo dot com. I will mail the book in a week or so, and I will ship internationally.

Simple. So take your pick, and enjoy!

    I’d love to snag The Fionavar Tapestry trilogy. I have to admit the mixed reviews have me interested; I love it when some love and some hate a book.

    • Teresa says:

      Trisha, you are welcome to it! My feelings were so mixed about the first book that I decided not to read the rest, but maybe you’ll love it and convince me I should have continued!

    would love The oracles:My fillipino Grandparents in america.What a nice idea Thankyou

  3. Jenny says:

    Aw, you’re nice! I am resisting temptation like a champ, but I did at least want to comment and say thanks on behalf of those not under book-buying bans. :p

  4. Kathleen says:

    This is so sweet of you to do and gives me an idea that I can do the same. I would love the opportunity to get Infinite Jest if you still have it. I’ll email you my shipping address right now. THANKS!

  5. I would love the copy of Prince Rupert’s Teardrop! It sounds wonderful.

    • Teresa says:

      Lindsey, I hope you enjoy Prince Rupert’s Teardrop as much as I did. It’s quite the mind-bender, but I had trouble putting it down.

  6. Alessandra says:

    May I have Sense and Sensibility, if you still have it? Thanks :)

    • Teresa says:

      Alessandra, Sense and Sensibility is yours. A wonderful book that I’m only getting rid of because I upgraded to an Everyman’s edition. Just e-mail me your address.

  7. Sara says:

    Fables 12 please. I collect the series.

  8. Tracee says:

    1974 sounds like something I’d like to try. Thanks so much!

  9. Rae says:

    I would love 2017!

  10. Sasha says:

    Crap. Of course I’m too late, haha. Have fun to the new parents of the books!

  11. gaskella says:

    I’m too late, but wanted to say that’s such a nice gesture – Thanks Teresa. I think you may inspire me to do something similar …

  12. Iris says:

    I’m too late, but I love the gesture :)

  13. Teresa says:

    Annabel and Iris, I’ll definitely be doing this again, and I’ll try to vary my posting times to give different people a chance. (I’ll probably also do some that are random draws in the future, too.)

  14. Maria says:

    That was nice of you…Good Karma to you….;-)
