Clearing Out

Since I’m moving apartments in May, I’ve started shifting some of the prodigious piles of books that pass for home decor in my current place. In the interest of not breaking the movers’ backs, some of them will have to go.

For the next few Sundays, I’ll be listing books I’m giving away. If you want any of them, just email me and I’ll mail it to you! Purely first come, first serve. I hope this gives people a chance to try new authors or new series.

AMENDED TO ADD: All the books below were snapped up in about ten minutes flat! Thanks for your enthusiasm, all, and I’m so sorry I didn’t have enough copies for everyone. I’ll be putting more books up for grabs next Sunday.

Here’s this week’s haul:

— Wendy Holden, Marrying Up. (British chick lit.)

— Plum Sykes, Bergdorf Blondes. (American chick lit.)

— Patti Callahan Henry, Coming Up for Air. (American women’s fiction.)

— Laurie R. King, O Jerusalem. (Mystery. Warning: this is several books into the series. You might want to start with The Beekeeper’s Apprentice if you haven’t read these before.)

— Elizabeth Hoyt, Wicked Intentions. (Historical romance, the first in her Maiden Lane series.)

More next week as I continue to weed through!

    Lauren, you’re wonderful! Thanks so much for this. It’s very kind.

    I love you Lauren! I’d love to try Coming Up for Air!!

  3. Lauren on April 29, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Hi, Valinda! It’s all yours– just email me with your snail mail address.

    And that, I’m afraid to say, was the last of the books for this week! They were all snapped up in about ten minutes flat.

    Ooh, Wicked intentions sounds great! Is it still up for grabs?

  5. Lauren on April 29, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Sorry, Nikki! That was one of the first to go. All the books have been snapped up already.

    Too late for me, but you are so generous and wonderful!!! All those books being given a new family and a new life…

    Ditto what Celine wrote…Lauren, you are so generous to your readership! Thank you.

    Wow, this is so generous of you!

    I know about the clearing out process. I’m so grateful for my Kindle. It’s probably the only thing keeping me from showing up on one of those tv shows about people w/ too much stuff. I now have a strict limit on how many “real” books can pass thru my portals these days.
