Book Sell-off

Posted by Mike on August 20, 2003 7:51 PM

Somehow this got set to "draft" so I'm nudging it back to the top. -mph

It's getting time to make some room in the pad. Inside is a list of technical books I'm willing to part with. Some are review copies, some were purchased for quick homework sessions before doing an article, and some were areas of interest for a brief while.

Terms: check out the list, let me know which ones interest you, and I'll give you a figure for shipping. Yep, some of them aren't worth much; yep, some of them are worth more; yep, the edition matters, so write about the ones you'd like to check.

If nothing else, it's a chance to pad out your collection of ORA animal books so you can look more 'l33t the next time Slashdot has an O'Reilly poll.

Oh, one more "yep": I could probably auction some of these off, but I don't feel like dealing with that quite yet. This is just a "friends and family" sort of deal.

Update: an item with a strikethrough has been claimed.

Speaking of books, I ordered the second to last copy of your book from Amazon today. I was wondering if you could sign it for my friend, George. He's a big fan of Pudding. (Hello, Georgie). Is that something that could be arranged?
