Do you like to Read?

So, I will admit to being a bit of a book snob. I have six shelves worth of slim, attractive volumes, all ordered neatly by author and category. Only, now I have three shelves. And I'm drowning in books.

I really need to get rid of some! If you like fantasy/science fiction, and would like me to send you a box of books, let me know! Because I will be more then glad to part with some of mine!

No, you don't have to follow me. Or send me anything. Or even tweet this (but you can if you want to).

Here are some of the books I have. All books are in used condition, with no writing or highlighting. Very readable and no tears. If you want any of these, leave me a comment with those you would like and then e-mail me your address. My e-mail is I'll cross through the books as people take them.

  1. I'd be really interested in Dante's Inferno if it's still going? Ellie xxx

  2. sure :) just email me and I will ship it to you :)

  3. I adore books, as witnessed by the excessively overflowing collection right now. I recently started using a branch of the library here that has a decent "friends of the library" book sale section and I always end up getting at least one new volume, be it for myself or my kids . . .and even the books I am never going to read again, I think I have to keep for my daughters to read someday.

    If you have volumes left over after gifting your friends, you should definitely see if your library takes donations. Another option is Operation Paperback which sends books to troops overseas and their families.

    I loved Dante's Inferno (and the other two volumes of the Divine Comedy). I actually named one of the main characters in my novel after one of the characters in the purgatory section.

    I'm actually doing a give away for the above mentioned book on my blog right now It expires in 8 hours and I only have 7 entries so far, so you'd have a good chance, though I guess that wouldn't help you slim down your collection.


    I'm interested in...well, all of them really, but that's far too selfish. I list my top picks:
    1.The Merlin Effect by T.A. Barron
    2. The two books by Jeffry Overstreet
    3. The Telling Pool
    4. The Seer and the Sword
    5. Peter and the Starcatchers

    You don't have to give me all those, but I'd gladly accept any of them :P

  5. Sure :) You can take them all. Seriously. Do you want to meet up for coffee or do you want me to mail them to you? :)

  6. What?! Free books?! Really?!

    I mean, if you're just going to give them away... I wouldn't say no to Childhood's End or Imaginary Girls or Fair Peril.

    Also, I FINALLY replied to your comment on my blog. Sorry it took so long! I always end up with a backlog. =/

  7. Wow, we have really different reading tastes!! I'm more of a classic murder mystery gal myself--Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot and Father Brown....also the "Cat Who" series, which is much more modern, but still, from the 60s.

  8. Coffee sounds good :) I'll email you my schedule and we can work something out :)

  9. Thanks :) I'll totally send you those! Just e-mail me your address at :)

    You're so generous! I love books so much, but there aren't a lot of books that I want to read more than once, so now I get all my books from the library. When Gabriel was one and he started pulling books off the shelves daily, we decided to sell a lot of our books on Amazon. We kept the ones that were special to us or that weren't worth any money. The financial counselor in me says that you should see if your books are worth money. But I think you just want to be generous and that is wonderful!

  11. Great list!!! but I have to saw I am in LOVE with that dress!!! It is unbelievably cute!!!

    I hope you'll have a chance and stop by my blog. All about Beauty. Life. and DIY. If you ever have an OTD, LOTD, hair or nail tutorial, or a fun fashion DIY, I'd love for you to share it at "That's my Style" Link party TOMORROW (every Friday). Don't have anything to share? Stop by anyway for beauty tutorial and fun DIY projects. Hope to see you there. :)
