Update They are sold, en masse too!
Update I have a tentative offer, which should conclude by this weekend. If not, I will repost.
A move having been imposed upon me, I have to clear my shelves. Not to sound cliché, but everything must go. I’ll be down to my Kindle and tattered copy of Little Big Man1 when finished.
Looks to be about 650+ tomes of interest to young and old, man and woman, progressive and conservative, insane or other. Ninety-five-percent hardbacks and trade paper; only a few pocket paperbacks. Same percentage of non-fiction to fiction. Pictures of each, more or probably less clear, have been uploaded to Image Shack. Price? Extremely negotiable.
Genres: graduate statistics (theory, practical of every kind, no undergraduate textbooks), physics (theory and general), history (naval, military, general, biography), culture (education, sociology, psychology, skepticism), cookery (tea and wine, mostly), legal (evidence, general), novels (mainly sci-fi, which I bought and tried and failed to read; much is badly written).
Things work differently in Manhattan than they do in the USA. I have no way to offload the books here. For one, I do not have a car. For another, whoever wants them has to collect them all at once. And it has to be on a weekday during normal working hours, no holidays (the building has rules). I have no boxes, either; no, nor any string. Whoever gets them will have to have the powers of a wizard—or professional mover.
Use email@example.com or the Contact page. I’m putting this ad up on Craig’s List, too. Also calling The Strand tomorrow.
To answer the question: I have no idea where I’m going. Like I said a month back, if I had my drothers it would be a place where the mountains are high and the emperor far away. Perchance to a land without cubicles. If I’m very lucky, Taiwan. Only there can be find the best duck tongue.
Regular posts to resume tomorrow.
1Do not see the movie: it shares only the title with the novel.
