*and a wee bit o’ sale, too.
Here’s a complete list of books I wish to donate or give away. It’s fairly short for someone with over 650 tomes, but, what can I say — I have a really good taste in books! I love my library dearly and I treat them well, so any book that is originally owned by yours truly is really “like new” if it says so. Some of the covers of the books are even covered with plastic.
This is a historical occasion, so if someone writes my biography some day make sure you jot down this date! >_<y

Instead of giving away the books below, for reasons of being a nice set in good condition that looks good in a bookshelf, I don’t want to part with them for free. Nothing wrong with the books in any way: The two short story collections have some sentimental value (some of the last things I got from my dad before he died); I just can’t stand an incomplete collection (McCaffrey); and for some reason, this particular gift (the Donaldson set) from my ex is an eyesore. :P

Not a book, but it was the only thing I could find at the moment that I consider unnecessary (just wait till I get my hands on the rest of my property currently in storage!):
- Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring. Pewter & Bronze Effect chess set. Original package, hardly used. I never had a space for it. It’s really cool, even if the pieces are plastic. I’ve checked the regular retail price at around 30-40€, this one is yours for 20€. :)
I won’t pay any shipping/postage, but otherwise the books are free for all. I live in Helsinki, so it’s possible to meet up at the centre for delivery. Otherwise email me and ask (itsOKtohearvoices_honestly -at- yahoo.co.uk. It’s my junk mail email :D) . First come, first serve. Please! Take them away!
