"Beloved" World Book Night
« on: June 15, 2011, 12:46:25 PM »
Hello!

So earlier on this year I was selected as a "giver" for World Book Night 2011. They delivered me about 42 copies of Toni Morrison's novel "Beloved" to give away for free as part of their programme to spread the pleasures of contemporary literature. Anyway, I've been giving out my copies at a relatively consistent rate and I still have quite a few left (more than ten copies) before my duty is done!

So if there's anybody here who wants a (free) copy of "Beloved", just post here or send me a PM! I'll pay for the shipping and all that, won't hurt my wallet much as long as those of you across the pond don't mind waiting a few weeks for your copy. Wasn't quite sure where else to make this topic, figure this would be a good place to start. :)

EDIT: I'll be sure to make a new post when I do run out of books to give!

I'll take one... but I feel bad because paying for shipping on 42 books can't be cheap.

Oh, no. I don't ship all the books out to people. Gave quite a few to friends, societies, etc. A coffee shop around the corner agreed to let me put up a small sign and stack of the books for their customers to pick up.

World Book Night sent the books by shipping them to my closest bookstore (then friends helped carry it back to my flat). So it isn't much trouble for me to ship a few around the world, I'm happy that people get a chance to read "Beloved". You can PM me your addie or just add me on AIM and send me a message there. :)

While I'm not interested in that particular book, I think you should be honored for this gesture.
It's a very nice thing you're doing.
