Book give-away

Our regional library regularly discards books and I often stop in and scoop up an armful to use or to pass along to others. On my most recent visit last Friday I got a backseat-of-the-carful and sorted them out when I got home. Now I have a stack I'd like to give away to anyone who wants any or all of them. I'm willing to pay the postage (media mail) and ship them out before the end of next week. Email me (LLD61[at]hotmail[dot]com) with your list and address. First come, first served. All are library discards with the usual markings, and all but one are hardcovers.
