Book sale

Once again, I’m offering readers of this blog an opportunity to get books that I’ve reviewed at cut-rate prices.

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. If outside sellers on Amazon are offering new copies for less than that price, I’ll match them. Orders that total over $100, excluding shipping, will be eligible for an additional 10% discount.

As I’ve written many times before, 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—stains, 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 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 and I’ll update the list as I receive payment.
