Book Cull :(

I am getting rid of books.

Not lightly, and in most circumstances not because they are no good – though I confess some have never been opened.  I have to move on, Circuit Ministry is not happening for me at the moment.  We do not have the room and all these books have been unlooked at for nearly eight years, so I would rather someone else had them if they are any use.

They are just as they have come out of their storage box.  Some are yellowed, some do have my scribbling in.  They all have address labels stuck in the front page.  Just because I own them, doesn’t mean I agree with them – I cannot be held responsible for the views inside them!  Some are simply outdated, but may be interesting if you’re writing essays and trying to put a subject into context. If you would like one, please let me know.

If you want more details, I will do what I can.  I am not asking anything for them, but postage costs would be appreciated.  Drop off points may be possible.  Please also bear in mind that as someone with a chronic illness, I am slow – but doing my best 🙂 (and the same reason they’re not listed in alphabetical order!)

Oh and in case of more than one request, it will be first come – rubbish I know, but this has to be stress free – sorry!

So, here is a list, hopefully in some kind of order:
