Library Tidy-Up (Part 2)

Of course a library tidy-up wouldn't be a real tidy-up just if we moved some books around. No, for a proper tidy-up, you have to be prepared to chuck some stuff out. Some of these are duplicates, some of these are books we probably won't get around to reading any time soon, and others we just don't want or need any more. Before I chuck them or take them to a charity shop, I thought I would offer them to you lot. Price is free plus P&P, assuming the latter is other than trivial. If you're interested, say what you want in a comment. First come first served.

I'll understand if you'd rather give to someone you know better, but if you are really doing this on a first-come-first-served basis then I would gladly take the Economics texts, the Duane, The Thick of It, 7 Habits & What Not to Wear, and will pay postage on all or part, accordingly.

OMG and the directory of place names!

No, not at all - I didn't friends lock this, so it's genuinely first-come, first-served. Send me a livejournal private message with your name and address and I'll get back to you with P&P costs. I suggest a PayPal money transfer as the easiest way to pay for P&P.

I'd love The English and Civilisation.

If you don't mind hanging on to them until I pop down in the summer it will save posting the heavy books?
May. 28th, 2012 07:27 pm (UTC)
Okey-dokey - just let us know when you're popping by. Failing that, we can hang onto them until Butteller.

1990 books 1 and 2, Later Roman Britain, pls
May. 28th, 2012 07:29 pm (UTC)
Righty-ho. Although we probably have your address somewhere, it might be easiest if you just send it via LJ private message. I'll sort out how much the P&P is and then I suggest the easiest way to transfer would be PayPal. Mind you, those three might not add up to much.

Out of interest, do you remember the programme '1990'? I'd never heard of it - the books are ones in a large collection of SF acquired from an uncle.

PM to follow, and quite happy to pay by PayPal.

I sort-of remember the programme. I more remember reading the first volume some 25 years ago, having bought it from - IIRC - the student union second-hand bookshop at Essex. I enjoyed it at the time, although I am quite prepared to find that it has deteriorated in the last 25 years.

You're getting rid of The Thick of It??? I mean not that I'd have asked for it as I've already got it. I can only presume you have a complete box set now so don't need the separate bits?
May. 29th, 2012 08:08 am (UTC)
You guessed right - I have a more complete boxed set, so the older one is a duplicate.
