Book sale

As I wrote yesterday, I'm desperately short on bookshelf space. It's time for some serious culling.

Here’s the deal. I will sell the books on the first list for half the current official Amazon U.S. price plus the cost of domestic media mail—figure between $3 and $3.50 for a single title, less per book for multiple titles. (I’m willing to ship outside the U.S., but shipping charges can be prohibitive.) Books on the second list I’ll part with for a third of the Amazon price. Orders that total over $100, excluding shipping, will be eligible for an additional 10% discount.

The books are officially used because, yes, I read them. But I have one of the tiniest “book footprints” on the planet; my used books look better than most new books at the local bookstore. No dog ears, no coffee—or, in my case, tea—spills, no visible fingerprints.

In deference to the publishers who so kindly supply me with review copies, I am not offering anything I have reviewed in the last three months. If, however, you’re interested in a more recent title, I’ll be happy to put it aside for you. Just ask.

If you would like to buy any of these books, please email me at My preferred method of payment is PayPal. I’ll fill “orders” on a first come, first served basis.
