Everything Must Go: Books

NOTE: This collection is now closed. Thanks for participating! -Paul


I've collected a lot of books over the years. Now I'd like to give them to you. Is there a catch? Yes. I just ask that you pay for postage, though I will try to send everything in the cheapest way possible. You don't pay until you get the book(s). You can pay via PayPal or check; I'll include instructions with the shipment. I will ship books outside the US, however you should note that international shipping is often more expensive and time consuming.


The books are all used (i.e. "read") but most are in at  least good or very good condition. All books are provided as-is and are described as accurately as possible.


If you'd like a book, please email me. Items are provided on a first come, first serve basis only. Sorry.


Note: Books that are already taken will be crossed-out. Books that are not given away here will be donated locally.


Please don't ask for books you don't want. And remember that books are heavy: Sometimes shipping can get expensive.
