I'm trying to clear out all the books we have that we've read/are never going to read, but my problem is, I can't give them to charity or anything like that, because a lot of them are slightly damaged in some way (creased covers, that kind of thing) and have the title pages removed, or are proof copies, and were free from work, neither of which can be sold on.

So, before I just take them all back into work to leave there for people to pick at, I thought I'd offer them up to you guys first. However, I've been looking into postage, and I can't afford to post them out myself, so if there's anything you fancy I'd have to ask for postage >_< I can send them however you like, air, ground, first class, registered etc.

If there are particular things you like and want me to recommend some, comment, and if you'd like more information about anything, comment XD

Anyway, here's a list of everything we're trying to get rid of ^^

ksdjfks I'm sorry, I meant to reply to this ages ago but the comment got lost in my inbox and I forgot >_<

Paypal is fine! My email is vix4711@hotmail.com :)

I just remembered I forgot to let you know this before >_< Because paypal charges for the service, if you wanted all the books (8.96 shipping) it would come to £9.47 in total. Would you like me to work out the total if you didn't get Blood Price?

IS there any really good fantasy ones there?

I could possibly take some of the Terry Pratchet ones off your hands as I always get told I should read him.

It all depends on postage price really.

A lot of the Pratchett ones have gone already >_< Wintersmith and Good Omens are still a-okay, but they're both hardback..

Brian Jacques & John Peel write good fantasy, and although I've not read them I've heard really good things about Wicked, Son of a Witch and Lost (Maguire) - Wicked is based on The Wizard of Oz, and the two witches being friends before they came to Oz. Then Son of a Witch is a follow-on. Lost, I'm not so sure about, but I found a summary for you here (http://www.gregorymaguire.com/books/lost.html) ^^ They also have Wicked (http://www.gregorymaguire.com/books/wicked.html) and Son of a Witch (http://www.gregorymaguire.com/books/sonofawitch.html).

China Mieville's Un Lun Dun (http://www.amazon.com/Un-Lun-Dun-China-Mieville/dp/0345495160) is awesome, and there are a couple that are classed as Teen fiction, but are still really good, like Eragon (Paolini), Kiki Strike (Miller) and Abhorsen (Nix). Betwixt (Smith) is a sort of gothic-fantasy, but again, rather good, and Tolkein is obviously awesome fantasy XD

Which country would I be posting to? I can give you a rough price depending on the weight..

Depending on how much it is to post I would take Good Omens off your hands. I love Neil Gaiman so anything that involves him is cool ^_^

China Mieville's un lun dun sounds pretty good and The Secret of Dragonhome sounds interesting too.

So I'll see what that comes to.
And you'd be posting it within the same country XD I live in Derbyshire.

From: [identity profile] myxstorie.livejournal.com
All together, they come to £5.94 first class, or £4.89 second. Just Good Omens would be £2.95 first or £2.63 second ^^

Ah go on then! Is there any way easier than paypal? I'm okay with paypal but... I wondered if there's another way.

I get paid friday so I won't be able to pay you till after then.

Sorry, I totally forgot I hadn't commented >_< There's bank transfer if you'd prefer? If you wanted to use paypal, there's the paypal fees too >_

How would I do a bank transfer?
I want to avoid Paypal because of the stupid fees XD

I'm not sure, I'll try and find out XD

SHIT OMG I'M TRYING TO GET RID OF MY OWN BOOKS TO MOVE DOWN TO YOU AND YOU'RE OFFERING FREE BOOKAGE? KLBGHOWSG.

I want:

Some of your PTerry (Maskerade, Light Fantastic, Making Money, Night Watch and is Interesting Times part of Discworld too? idr it's been so long since I read them)...
Rustyrockets' My Booky Wook, Effy was telling me that it was an interesting read but idk if she is lying or not...

I am trying not to laugh at some of the things on offer. THANK GOD YOU ARE GIVING YOUR SMEYER AND ANITA BLAKE BOOKS AWAY. *shot*

ALSO WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO GIVE AWAY JOHN O'FARRELL'S UTTERLY IMPARTIAL HISTORY OF BRITAIN D: I LOVE THAT BOOK. It totally kept me sane (har har) when I was in hospital one time.

From: [identity profile] myxstorie.livejournal.com
eric and Interesting Times are both Discworld books XD And Wintersmith is set on the Discworld, but it's the third in a trilogy (Wee Free Men - which is AWESOME XD)

I keep hearing from people that Booky Wook is pretty good actually - apparently it's quite well written and funny, he's a clever guy. I'll give the first chapter a perusal if you like XD

DON'T LAUGH XDD Anita Blake USED to be good! Even Nick enjoyed the first few books XD So much of the stuff on there I haven't even read, I grabbed it all from the boxes of freebies at work thinking I'd like to give it a go sometime and never got around to it >_<

O'Farrell's History is that good? DAMN YOU PEOPLE STOP MAKING ME WANT TO KEEP THEM XDD Is there anything else there you'd like me to keep hold of for you to look at? I can just box them up and leave them in my mum's care until you can look through, so I don't mind XD
