The Book Cull List (so far)

We are culling books!

If you are LA-local, we can find a place to meet up to hand them off. Or heck, this is a great reason to have you over for a visit.

We can send these, but we will need you to reimburse us for shipping, etc. (Yes, your package may be only $2 to ship, but trust me, the cost of postage and padded envelopes and so forth adds up over 40 packages.)

Some of this has already been posted on Facebook, so my apologies in advance if it gets claimed before you holler!

Please feel free to point all your friends at this, ESPECIALLY if they're in LA. We'd love for these to go to a good home.

Please note: There will be additions over the next several days.

i'd love the simple art of marrying food and wine and also grimm's fairy tales.

my phone is being ornery about editing and capitalization, so just laugh at the strange book title resulting from my lack of comma :)

Cool! Can you send your mailing address to rednikki AT gmail and I will send them off?
Jan. 6th, 2014 03:19 pm (UTC)
Is finding serenity taken? If not, I'd like it. How do I send you money?
Jan. 8th, 2014 04:19 am (UTC)
YOu are the first to call it! You can PayPal or Dwolla me money, but let me send the book first. Can you email me your address? rednikki AT gmail.

You'll be shocked — shocked! — to hear of my interest in:

The Essential Bartender's Guide by Robert Hess, The Cocktail Bible by Linda Doesser, and Imbibe magazine.

feyandstrange may want something, too, so hold our order until she's awake and can read this.

I knew those Imbibes would go to a good home! Unfortunately, someone got to the cocktail books before you did, but I still have the Imbibes for you. I will hold them in a pile until you get back to me.

Do you want anything else? Still holding your books for you...
Jan. 14th, 2014 05:31 pm (UTC)
Just the Imbibes. Thank you!
Jan. 15th, 2014 04:01 pm (UTC)
Can you email me your address? I know I should have it, but I am not sure I do.

Constructed Realities
What Ifs of American History
Tanya Huff Blood ___ books
Williams Sonoma grilling box

Maybe some of the stuff you've yet to add.
Jan. 8th, 2014 04:23 am (UTC)
Do you want me to run them by your place sometime next week?

Someone called dibs on the Grilling box but then waffled. Let me get her to be firm tonight one way or the other.
Jan. 8th, 2014 04:29 am (UTC)
Sure. And if no one's claimed them add Terran Trade Authority and the Trek books for the boy?
Jan. 10th, 2014 05:30 am (UTC)
Added them to the stack. The person who originally claimed the Grilling box stepped up, but the rest are yours.
