Free Books!

First things first. I have a job! I am working at Books-A-Million (hence forward known as BAM). The prospect of a paycheck is pretty exciting. Also, the man I interviewed with seemed really nice...a good guy, so I think this will be a good experience.

Now, to the books. Most of them will be free, but I do expect a little cash for shipping. I will be cross-posting this to my livejournal and will keep it updated as people claim books. First a picture, then a list (I tried to sort by genre):



Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth by Simon R. Green
Paths Not Taken by S.G.
Hex and the City by S.G.
Nightingale's Lament by S.G.
Agents of Light and Darkness by S.G.
Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
The Endless Knot by Stephen Lawhead
The Silver Hand by S.L.
Virtual Unrealities: The Short Fiction of Alfred Bester
Eragon and Eldest by Christopher Paolini ---Sara

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis ----Izzy
Grendel by John Gardner-----Scott

The Man in the High Castle by Phillip K. Dick----Scott
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende

American Pastoral by Philip Roth ----Izzy
Reading Myself and Others by P.R.

The One Percent Doctrine by Ron Suskind
How Did this Happen? Terrorism and the New War (essays) ----Izzy
Terrorism by David J. Whittaker ----Izzy
The Cold War by John Lewis Gaddis ----Izzy

Suetonius Nero

Collected Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay
The Northon Anthology of English Literature, 7th Ed, Vol 1($10)
The Northon Anthology of English Literature, 7th Ed, Vol 2 ($10)
The Norton Shakespeare Based on the Oxford Ed. ($10) -----Scott
The Bedford Companion to Shakespeare by Russ McDonald 2nd ed.

Some of them, you see, I am asking a little bit of money for. Mainly because shipping for those will be higher. Ask for as many books as you like, first come, first serve. If you know me, you know I take care of my books. The school books may have a little writing, but nothing obtrusive. All of the books are in very good condition, though The Gulag Archipelago and the Collected Poems of Millay were bought used and show a little wear.

I'm giving them away because, as most of you also know, I love my books. I want to share that love and make sure they go to a good home with people that won't use them as cupholders or to even out tables.

OOoooh. Books!

I promise not to use your books as coasters, or as building materials. I can't say that my cat won't use them as pillows, however.

Could I have the Narnia set? I'd be glad to paypal you shipping.

Can I suggest a title to try, if you enjoy fantasy by authors like Stephen Lawhead and C.S.Lewis?
"Outcasts Of Skagaray" is an action adventure fantasy, written with Christian focus. For a free preview, you can read sample chapters on I would love it if you read and enjoyed my book but whatever the case I greet you and invite you to visit my blog if you wish. It is Best wishes
