New - Books Up for Grabs Section

I like to read, but one of my New Year's resolutions this year is to reduce clutter here at home. To that end, I have added a new feature to my sidebar called Books Up For Grabs.

These are all used paperbacks that I've read, that I cannot sell on Amazon, because of the volume of the title already posted there for sale. Normally I donate them to our local library, but thought I'd offer them up to bloggers who might like to read them. I'll continue to add to the list as I clean out our bookcases. It is a short list right now.

My hope is that someone else will enjoy the book. The library typically puts them in their Book Cellar for sale, and paperbacks only go for a quarter or 50 cents, so I don't feel too badly about not donating them. If you would like a book, just email me your information and I'll put it in the mail to you. I don't expect to get them back so when you are through with it, you may feel free to donate it or pass it on to someone else.

I'm always looking for something else to read as well, so if you think you have something I'd like to read, feel free to let me know. I usually like mysteries/suspense, or funny novels. If there is any gratuitous smut thrown in, so much the better (heh).

Heh! Another Kinsey Millhone fan! My sis sent me T is for Trespass for Christmas - it's on the short list for reading.

Very cool. Bloggers love give aways.

I have a bazillion books. I really need to donate them to someone. I'm thinking about maybe donating a ton of stuff to retirement homes. There's plenty of them.

Jeffro - I just started reading hers this year, I've got half of them laying around and thought I'd better start.

Admiral - free stuff, yay!

RT - the last time I tried the local nursing home, they didn't want them so I started taking them to the library for them to sell.
