Okay, folks, it is true. It is not only knitters (of which I am one) who have stashes upon stashes . . . it is also readers (of which I am ONE) who have stashes upon stashes.
I am cleaning out the book stash – and it pains me greatly to do so. I LOVE books, love to read, wish I had more time – or the ability to stay awake longer – to read. Or, in this case, to read these titles again.
But I do not, and I cannot, so I am coming to you all with a proposition.
I live in Alaska – I make my own fun. Yes, indeedy.
The first five – non-family member- folks who post a comment to this post may take their pick of one of the following titles by Alaskan authors. I will be happy to slip the book into the mail to you come Monday. How’s that for a cool deal from a cool purple moose?
I’ve linked the books to their Amazon counterpart so you can make an informed decision on which you might like.
One to a customer, please – and please leave your choice in your comment. I will email you – so make sure you leave a good, working, email address – so that we can exchange mailing addresses.
On your mark – get set – CHOOSE!
Death Takes Passage, by Sue Henry – A Jessie Arnold Mystery (c) 1997
The Music of What Happens by John Straley – A Cecil Younger Mystery (c) 1996
Dead Stick by Megan Mallory Rust – A Taylor Morgan, pilot mystery (c) 1998
and, just because I have way more of her books – AND – because I know some of you really enjoy reading her – here are TWO books by Dana Stabenow:
A Cold Day for Murder – a Kate Shugak mystery (c) 1992
Fire and Ice – a Liam Campbell mystery (c) 1998
There are nineteen more titles where these came from – so I will likely do this again. It depends on how this go around works. There is just no more room in my (junk) catch-all room so it is time to clear some out. I am not giving up the autographed copies that I have, however. Sorry ’bout that. The family will likely inherit those someday. Yup, I’ve been blessed to have met Dana, John and Sue. Dana and John attended writers group functions and we treated them to dinner before their speaking engagements. I met Sue at the Writers Conference in 2003.
by the way – Lessa and I are attending this year’s Kachemak Bay Writers Conference next weekend. We leave Friday and return Tuesday. Amy Tan is the keynote speaker this year. Woo-hoo!
Okay – enough from me – enter comment zone.
