    Default The "Pay It Forward" COTH Book Exchange

    A fellow COTH'er very generously shipped me 'The Hunger Games' series to read (on her dime). When I'm finished with them, I'm happy to ship them to someone else (on my dime). First person to PM me, gets them (be warned, it will be about 2 weeks from now that I'm ready to ship them ).

    I had an idea to do an ongoing COTH book exchange- someone posts books they are willing to put into circulation, people can "claim" them, and then when they are done with them, repost. Or however it ends up shaking out.

    Don't forget USPS has special reduced-rate shipping for books.

    So.... Hunger Games series, up for grabs. Ready.... GO!

    (anyone got the new Stephen King 11/22/63 they are finished with?)

    OK, I have 3 books I will add to the chain.
    I have "From the Desert to the Derby" by Jason Levin, which is about the Maktoum's quest for a Kentucky Derby winner.
    I have "SECRETARIAT" by William Nack
    and a classic, "Album of Horses" by Marguerite Henry
    The Marguerite Henry book should be given as a gift, so add something back into the chain !

    "Desert to the Derby" is a good book, it starts at Keeneland during the 9-11 attack and goes to 2002 .

    I have quite a few books. I'm sort of a book addict. Unfortunately, I can't remember most of them off the top of my head until I get home tonight, and by then I'm sure the OT section will close, but here is what I can remember:

    Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
    Girl Who Played with Fire
    (still working on the 3rd...first book is paperback, and the others are hardcover)

    Something Borrowed

    Something Blue

    As Husbands Go - MIL gave me this one, and it's not my type of book.

    Siddhartha

    A Wrinkle in Time

    Great Expectations

    Misery

    I know I have MANY others...

    Hooray!!! I was just thinking I need an Off Topic Day to post all the books I've got up for grabs (some already recycled through this thread ).
    PM me your address, and I will ship you any book (or all books) on this list at my own cost. First come first served

    *CLAIMED*!! (but the COTH'er has promised to put them back up for grabs when she is done) The entire Hunger Games trilogy (AWESOME, could not put them down, I stayed up til 1 or 2am every night reading--> tired during day )

    *CLAIMED** 11/22/63 (just finished the other day with a marathon 1am session ) (much better S. King than his last one Under the Dome (also up for grabs)

    The 3 books in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series

    The Help (seriously excellent and VERY thought provoking)

    I have to go home and find some books to share! I know I have about 20 "Chick Lit" books from various summers under a bed at my parent's house. I even classified them at one point according to genre (intended for women in their teens, 20s, or 30-40s).

    PS My mom totally had Album of Horses when she was little! She gave me the book when I was something like 12, and it still had her own drawings of horses in it (she traced some of the horses that were illustrated). I especially liked how it included the Palomino and began by saying, "The Palomino actually isn't a breed, it's a color!" Someone will really enjoy that book
