Forget the previous entry about DVDs. Clear it from your mind.

Instead, here is a post about books! These are DIFFERENT books from the books listed previously. These are ones I've held onto for a reason, even if that reason is not that I ever, ever read them. Many are SORTA HARD TO FIND! Others make great LEND-OUTS! Comment or email me if you want any of these.

THE CUCKOO'S EGG: Once our most prized thrift store find, this charmingly 1970s account of catching a hacker on the u.c. berkeley arpanet is now on kindle!

FRENCH DICTIONARY/FRENCH GRAMMAR BOOK: It's amazing how long I've kept this considering I never read or speak French and Google translate exists. The grammar book is sorta nice to have anyway, lists verb conjugations and grammar rules.

GOOD OMENS: Ditto, it's on kindle but I kept it to lend out. Anyone need a paperback? (Also, I think this was originally Paul's!)

HARRIET THE SPY: Is on kindle. Anyone want a super old paperback??

HOW TO WRITE SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY by Orson Scott Card: Huge inspiration to me when I was younger, and includes some great general writing advice mixed in, but I just never write science fiction and fantasy.

IS HEATHCLIFF A MURDERER? by John Sutherland - Puzzles in classic literature, i.e. essays about lingering questions in books by Jane Austen, George Eliot, Trollope and more. Really good but I've only read a fraction of the books it's about. Hard to find.

LUCK IN THE SHADOWS: This is the only pulp fantasy book I like on account of the gay elves, but it's on kindle so I'll almost certainly reread it there if I ever want to. I kept the physical copy for lending out, but I think I've lent it to everyone now. Please message if you would like to borrow it--forever!

JANE EYRE illustrated by DAME DARCY: The illustrations are cool, but I am certain to reread this on kindle, I know because I have already done so!

MAURICE by E.M. Forster: Fun explicitly gay romance written in 1910s, not on Kindle, but I probably won't read it again unless and until it is.

THE MOST OF S.J. PERELMAN: I never read this anymore but it was a great inspiration when I was writing Lance and Eskimo articles. It's also impossible to find.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: For some reason I thought it was important to keep a physical copy of this, but I have it on kindle.

THE SEVEN-PER-CENT SOLUTION: Ditto on hard to find, sort of a published Sherlock Holmes and Freud fan fiction thing, fun but I probably won't read it again.

STELLA DALLAS: 90s trade paperback. I probably won't read this again, but it's sorta hard to find.

THREE MUSKETEERS: There are versions of this on Gutenberg etc, but the Modern Library hardback has a better translation, I think. I probably won't re-read it (I don't re-read books nearly as much as I think I do), so you're welcome to it!

I'm expanding my DVDs on offer because I really only watch Netflix now. You may say it's foolish to rely on an Internet service, but it seems silly to keep around DVDs when I PREFERENTIALLY watch them on Netflix.

The list is now )

Claim any you like! I also have various geeky action figures on offer! State your fandom!
