The books listed below are available free to anyone in the world — the first person who emails or DMs me with a request and a postal address gets them. I will put the book in an envelope and mail it to you, no obligation. There are only a few rules:
- Please only request a book if you want to read it.
- After reading, give away this book (or keep it and give away another book), or leave it on the bus, or otherwise share the love.
- If you can, drop some small token (of no commercial value — bookmark? local chocolate bar? tourist map of your town?) back in the mail to me. Part of the fun is exchanging something with someone far away, like we did back when there was no Internet, and the mail was one of the few ways to acquire surprising knowledge of foreign lands (like Pittsburgh, where I had a pen pal once upon a time).
That’s it! And now to this week’s list:
- Alison Sinclair, Cavalcade — mass-market paperback, well-used. A science fiction novel about an unusual first contact with an alien race.
- Martin Amis, Time’s Arrow — trade paperback, well-used.
- Jeffrey Archer, Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less — mass-market paperback, well-used. The first novel (1976!) by the British author, political figure, and convicted perjurer. Actually quite a good story about a financial caper that ends with a twist; a fun weekend’s reading.
