Book Giveaway: Round 1

Now that I'm back from Korea, it's time for me to get ready to move to Sweden. (I can just never stay still, can I?) It'll be a while before I have enough shelf space in Sweden to accommodate my library here in the States; plus, the less I have to ship over, the better.

I have a lot of books to give away!

This is the grand list for Round 1 (my reference/non-fiction collection). If you see anything you need/want here, please send me an email (gmail, kokoba) with the word BOOKS in the title, and include what you want and where I should send it.

That's it. There's no contest, no rules, I just want to send my books to a good home.

Everything is first come first serve. I'll post periodic updates about what's left. Whatever's left by February 1st will end up at a local library. Then comes Round 2: Fiction.

The good stuff!
