Book Giveaway!

So, I mentioned a couple of days ago that the Farm Fam is giving away some books. I finally got the list alphabetized and the PayPal thingy created and well whaddaya know I have a few minutes to throw this whole post together. Go me!

A word about the books: These are books that we've picked up over the years that we've either read so many times we can quote them chapter and verse, or books that we've picked up at yard sales by buying a box of books for a dollar... for one book out of the box... or just generally books that intrigued us enough to purchase but didn't quite fit our criteria for permanent membership in the Farm Fam Library. Some of them are quite old and slightly musty from storage, some have gotten slightly damp and warped the pages a bit, and a couple are vaguely mouse-nibbled at the corners. I make no assurances as to the condition of the books other than "not destroyed" and "readable."

For the most part they're all in good condition, though, and just a little musty in that "books in storage" kind of way.

Most are paperbacks, but four or five are hard backs. As I wasn't thinking ahead, I failed to note which ones, but if you request those I will make a point of letting you know that it's a hard back before I ask you to deposit your shipping costs.

Speaking of shipping costs, there's now a PayPal button on the right hand side of the page that reads "Donate." In the interest of streamlining the process I'll be using the USPS for shipping, and using their flat rate boxes. The rates for such are available here. When you request your books, I'll pack them and figure out what size box is needed, and then let you know via email what the cost will be.

To request books, please please please email me your list (at AND post it in comments. Emailing me is the fastest way to get the information to me, and posting it in comments means that everyone will know it's spoken for.

You pay the shipping, you get the books. Good deal, right?
