Books to Give Away

Although I have many ebooks on my phone, I have combined my attempt to support independent bookstores and my yearning to hold pages in my hands with a ton of books now crowding my shelves.  Since the library is not accepting donations, I need to disperse my collection some other way.  Maybe this year everyone I know will receive one of my books (only read once, some pages only slightly turned over, few markings in the margins) – the perfect used Christmas gift.  They should be safe to read, although they have not been tested and some of the contents may have contagious ideas.

Here’s my list of two dozen – want any?

  1. The Red Lotus by Chris Bohjalian
  2. The Second Home by Christina Clancy

  7. Beach Read by Emily Henry

  10. Naamah by Sarah Blake
  11. Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore
  12. Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Tatum
  13. The Confession by Jessie Burton
  14. No Time to Spare by Ursula LeGuin

  16. How to Find Love in A Bookshop by Veronica Henry

  1. What a great list of books! I admire your courage giving them away. I’m spending the covid lockdown by re-reading books in an overcrowded bookshelf. In the last week or so I’ve re-read 3 and will only give away one. It’s so hard to part with books!

  2. As usual, we have a number of the same books! Not looking to grow my collection right now, but I can attest to anyone looking for a good book to consider these titles. She knows her stuff!
