Books books books!

I swear, I never thought I’d be desperate to get rid of books. But, I don’t have a ton of storage room, and I’ve had a deluge of books recently. (Which is NOT to complain! Thanks especially to World Fantasy Con, Doug and Barry for some truly lovely books!)

I’m also bad about keeping books for sentimental value, and getting excess books to the used bookstore. (In my defense, the big used bookstore is across the bloody city.)

The books below are ones I won’t read again, I won’t loan out, and I just don’t want to store any more. Most of them are from my teen years, when every genre book was a best friend (wasn’t allowed to read fantasy!), so I’ve kept them for sentimental value. There are also a lot of paranormal romances. Yes, this is largely stuff I wouldn’t be caught dead with these days! No more, no more!

I’m giving books to 5 people. After that, shipping becomes an issue. So, comment below on which ones you want. Limit: 1 collection/author, or three books. Anything not claimed goes to the library or the used book store. This is first-come, first-serve, but if there’s a book you want, and you’ll pay $2 for shipping, I’ll work with that. Books will probably ship next week.

All books are used. Some are well-used, but all are intact.

Misc. Good Books That I Don’t Have Room For
