Free and Freeish books and things @ 08:01 am

Tags: ,

Shelf culling!

Free to a good home, or free+shipping to a distant good home (except for Richard, who has built up book postage karma). You can probably hunt through my book tag for reviews, if you're dedicated, but obviously I'm not too interested in keeping these books. Reply to place dibs. We'll work out handoffs as and when.

(also many of the items from a previous announcement are still sitting around and haven't yet made it to Goodwill)

Keith Laumer - The House in November
Samuel Delany - Stars in my Pocket like Grains of Sand
John Brunner - The World Swappers
Darwin - The Voyage of the Beagle
John Barth - On with the Story
Peter Jennings - A Reporter's Life
Arthur Lyon Cross - A Shorter History of England and Greater Britain (1930)
2 Candice Arkham Romances - Splendors of the Heart & Forbidden Yearnings
James Morrow - Towing Jehovah [awesome book, actually, but I have it in HB]
DJ Levien - Wormwood
Thomas Dixon - The Clansman
Richard Kadrey - Sandman Slim
Louis Theroux - The Call of the Weird
Oliver Sacks - Musicophilia

Did you play all the way through Red Dead Redemption? Awesome game.

I enjoyed it a lot. And the zombie version was a nice add-on.

I can't find any thoughts of yours on Kadrey's Sandman Slim, but I'd still be interested in picking it up. I have your antique Scientific American and figure I should probably hand it back some time.

Me on Sandman Slim. [don't feel bad for not finding it. I know my book tag is hopeless, and Google ignores me -- *sob* -- but ljArchive comes to my rescue for searching my own journal.]

It's yours when next we have a chance to make the switcheroo.

I would take the Smithsonian collection if you are willing to hold it until May (yeah, I will TOTALLY understand if you don't want to do that).

Not impossible. It can go back to sitting on the shelf. Just be sure to remind me if and when you're back out here.

If you're willing to shell out $3 for shipping, drop me an email with your street address.

If no one else claims them, let's haggle over Arkham Asylum and Red Dead. We might treat ourselves to a PS3 when the severance package comes in.

Looking at ebay prices for used games it looks like 20-30 for RDR and 15-20 for Arkham. So, say, $25 for both? Or $30 and I'll throw in Rock Band 2.

$20 would be great because it means I don't have to get change. ;-)
But we can do $25

Don't need RB2, though (still have Cort's).

I'll stand firm at $25. See you at the Superbowl!
