Thank You to My Faithful Readers – Free Books!

I noticed recently that the bookshelves in my office had become quite cluttered. When I would purchase new books, they had to be either wedged in or laid on top of the other books. That’s just not an ideal situation. I feel that bookshelves look and function best when they are less than two-thirds full. I think that is a great rule-of-thumb for any storage container, including an A-Z file cabinet.

Most people would probably suggest that it was time to buy a new bookshelf. I disagree with that. I don’t see where there is any advantage to having a large library of books I never read. Because of this I only have a few shelves of books in my office. It was time to do some serious purging!

When I purge my bookshelves, I usually donate books I no longer need. Biblically based books go to my church library. If I ever need them, I know where I can get access to them again. All other books go to my local public library where some will be placed into their collection and others will be sold in their annual book sell.

I’ve decided to do something different this time. I’m going to give these books to my you, my faithful readers!

How to Claim Your Free Book:

If there is any book on the list below you would like, just post a request for it in the comments of this post. Then send your mailing address to me at rickyspears@gmail.com. Books will given away on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit one book per household. Addresses must be in the United States because I’m paying the postage. You must make your request by Friday, June 6th 2008. I plan to mail them all on Saturday and donate any unclaimed books to the library on that date.

I’ll approve comments as I have time, but there may be times when several have not yet been approved. If I see multiple requests for the same book, I will only approve the first request for that book–I won’t approve the latter comments. Most of my readers who have posted here before should have their comments automatically approved–this gives you folks the best chance at getting the book you want.

One final rule: Don’t be a jerk! I’m trying to be nice here so please play nice too. Many of these books do contain my notes and highlighted passages. I’m not guaranteeing a like-new quality book. Some are hard cover, some are soft cover, and I can’t spend time answering questions about them.
