Holiday book giveaway
Many thanks to Abnormal Returns for inspiring me to give away the large pile of books that has slowly been accumulating on my desk over the past year. Some are galleys, some are duplicates, some I’ve started reading but know I’ll never finish; all of them will have much better homes elsewhere. So If you want one of these books, just send an email with your mailing address to email@example.com and I’ll cross it off the list. Happy holidays!
