The Once Every Ten Years Book Sale


About once every ten years or so I decide that the book collection has just gotten way out of hand and start weeding out. Books that I know I'll never read. Books that I read and will probably never revisit again. Books that I look at and say "What the heck was I thinking???"

This is that time.

A complete list is posted at http://www.mfoxweb.com/booksale.aspx and the prices. If you're local and want to drive over and pick them up, great! If we have to mail them I'll need to add at least a $5.00 postage charge depending on how many you want to buy.

Check back often because I haven't even started going through things yet so there's going to be a lot more to come!

I think the books I'm getting rid of say less about me than the books I'm keeping. And THOSE don't get listed!

Yep ... just tell me what you want and I'll work out the shipping costs.

I never pictured you as a guy who would read Mills and Boon.

Just posted more ...

Included in this bunch is a signed, first edition of "The Yiddish Policeman's Union" by Michael Chabon.

Am I crazy? Is there no one to stop me???

Uploaded more ...

Oh, heck... instead of me posting every day that I've just posted more, just assume that I'll be adding new titles every day and I'll post again when I'm done!

But, since the list is getting rather lengthy, I did break it up into Fiction and Non-Fiction for your browsing enjoyment.

Have fun!

Getting books in the mail is a wonderful experience. Thank you Eutychus, my new treasures arrived safe and sound - waiting to be devoured.

Okay, I think I'm done!


There may be a few more dribs and drabs that come through, but I'm pretty much done posting new items and will be my final announcement here. Check them out ... order them by the stack! Otherwise, I'll just have to keep them for another ten years.

Cheers!

I am very interested in both Chabon books, let me check on some finances and see if I can swing it now. Otherwise I'll have to wait till my next payday and hope nobody else snags it.

Remember when I said that the last posting would, indeed, be my last?

I lied.

But this one will. No really, I promise. I never intended to keep this going forever, but for those of you who may have been straggling and putting it off, let it be known that this sale will officially be over at the end of April. So if there's anything you wanted and have been procrastinating, get 'em now. Because on May 1st, they'll be gone, gone gone.

Thanks!

Uuuuuugh, I can't believe I missed the Chabon.

"On the windowsill" doesn't tell me if you're local to me, and I'm not interested in enough to make it worth my while to have you ship them. So, whereabouts are you at? I'd assume Rhode Island from your site, but I figured I should check.

Yes I did. Everything you want is still there so I'm currently getting it all together and I'll get you a shipping charge ASAP.

Awesome! I wasn't sure if silence meant "I'm packing it up" or "I didn't see the PM." Thanks!
