BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

The great thing for YOU when we get aggravated at having too many books is that we end up giving away really awesome stuff. We’ve pulled 254 titles from our collection… some are from lifetimes and careers long past, some just deserve to be read more, some are duplicates because can’t keep track of what we already have!

Most will go to the Friends of the Louisiana State University Library for their annual amazeballs book bazaar. But I know the religion books in particular may hold interest for friends of mine. Here’s a look at the religion section, with a couple of subdivided categories. Now, ownership on our part should not be taken as endorsement. We certainly haven’t read all of these. But many titles are dear friends. Let me know if you’d like more info about any of them. Every book except one is represented both in a picture and in the text list.

There’s no charge for any of them. If you’d like to contribute to shipping, I’d be delighted to give you a Paypal account to donate to. I’ll be shipping USPS media mail from Louisiana, US. But please don’t let lack of funds stand between you and a book you’d give a good home to.
