Books Update: Round 1 of Wade's Physical Books Library Giveaway (LAST CALL!)

Recommended Posts

I posted this in the reading thread, but I figured a separate thread wouldn't hurt.

 

In an effort to "de-clutter" my life (and by extension elevate my mood), I've decided to shed practically all of my library of physical books.  I've posted pictures of the first round below, so if you see something that you're interested in, let me know so I can set it aside for you.  All you have to cover is shipping/postage costs and PM me your address.

 

I'm away on a business trip this upcoming week so I'll start sending when I return.

Lots of stuff in there I’d read. Let me know what is left over after others pick through and I’ll buy the remainder.

I’d love history of the ancient and medieval world plus Fateful Choices if that is ok

Stephen Colbert: I am America (And So Can You). Just lemme know what the shipping costs are once they're shipped. :) 

 

Thanks!

I'd love The Rise & Fall of The Third Reich and the two Witcher books!

Assign me a book for homework, and I’ll read it.

 

Actually, I probably won’t. I was supposed to read John Adams for my APUSH class and never did.

Wow, I wouldn't have the willpower to get rid of all my physical books (have well over 1K). but you are so right, they take up a ton of room. 

It's really not a matter of the room they take up per se, but it's that they have become kinda symbolic of the "clutter" that's in my mind and is contributing to my current mental state.  In order to start getting my mind right, it's necessary to "clear" them physically!

I have no idea what you're referring to - I read something in the NYT a few weeks ago.

If it doesn’t spark joy in your life, get rid of it

Well that's just stupid because practically nothing has "sparked joy" in my life for years.

I can relate

I bet the next round of books has ‘The Secret’ in it.

The History of the Ancient World is probably my favorite overview of that time period. If you've read/studied different specific periods in the ancient world it's really helpful to read a book like Bauer's that places them all in relation to one another(or, alternatively, it's a nice way to get ideas about subjects you might want to dive deeper into). And she tends to make even dry subjects pretty fun to read about.

Not sure how I missed this thread

 

I'll take the two game of thrones books if you don't mind. May as well start reading them at some point.

@Chris- you're getting two packages - one with the large softcover, the other with the two Witcher novels.  If you want, pick another softcover to go into the package with the Witcher books.

 

I'm good with just those three!
