A Snow Day Give Away

It's a snow day give away! We have been buried under another 2 feet of snow and it will be months before my garden needs weeding, so I decided to tackle the shelves instead. In order to make room for new acquisitions, and inspired by Frances' generous example, these books are looking for a new home:






































Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry
Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson
Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter by Mario Vargas Llosa
Wicked by Gregory Maguire

All are paperbacks and in good (Speak) to very good condition. I'll ship them anywhere. Let me know if one interests you.

All the books have found a new home! Please send me your addresses and I'll send them out.

  3. You are so generous! I hope you don't endanger your life getting to the post office to mail these. I would so love to read "Speak". I've not read any of her books but I know she is a rocking YA author.

  15. Yay you! And thanks for the link love, generous lady. This feels great, doesn't it? And i love the fact that I know many of the people receiving the books. And the biggest thrill so far? Seeing one of the books I recently gave away already reviewed on another blog. Happy day!

  16. Frances - Dropped all the books off at the post office this morning. What a great feeling! I'll probably do this again in a couple of months. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
