If you could, I'd like you to take a moment away from your mourning either a musical icon [of questionable sanity] or the only Angel anyone can ever remember without prompting, and pay attention to free stuff.
That's right. It's anniversary time here and that means crap for you. Well. Free stuff. Shiny things? I dunno. Those of you with complete collections can just snicker at the photos below. Everyone else should pay attention.
We're trying something new this year. As my birthday is rapidly approaching, so approaches one of my treks out into the used book world to my favorite used bookstore that actually carries a decent amount of SV stuff. Sadly for me, it doesn't really have things I need unless I'm there with someone else. I figure that instead of driving all that way for nothing, I should have a backup. Which is where you guys come in.
Take a look at your list of missing SV books. Twins/Unicorns/Jr. High/SVH/SY/SVU hell, even Elizabeth shows up occasionally. Pick two that you want more than any others. Got those two? Good. Put them at the top of your list and either email me at snarkyimp at gmail dot com OR leave a comment here. You can put more than two books down, particularly if you want backups in case your two aren't at the stores. [Yes. For my birthday week, I cruise bookstores. Shut up.] But make sure I know which two you want most. Also, if you're at all picky about your books, you should let me know that, too. So if you merely want one to read and the condition doesn't matter, odds are much better for you. But if you don't want one where the spine has faded or is an ex-library book, you gotta let me know. I'm not psychic. You should know that if I bring the books home before mailing them out, we've got pets and my brother smokes. I don't, but some people are awfully sensitive and I don't want to inadvertently kill someone here. Also, I can't make any promises as to what the stores have, or hell, if the store even exists anymore. But I will try.
Also, you might notice that the Kids books aren't on the list. Yeah. I've got like... 10, so if anyone's going to be scooping those puppies up, it'll probably be me. You can put them as your Top Two, but I make no promises. The love ends July 4th
, as my vacation starts the next day and anytime that week I'll be attempting to forage for books. Can't forage if I don't have the list.
So. I mentioned the Kids, right? Well, my mini ebay splurge last week yielded a small lot of SVK books and most of them I hadn't read. While reading, I marveled at how cute some of the covers were and how utterly frightening others were. Also, I pointed and laughed at the SV Reader of the Month. And because I'm evil, I thought I'd warp your brains, too.( But since this is extra, we cut. )
