Another Giveaway

Spent the morning in front of bookshelves, cursing property prices in Mumbai. Emerged cobwebbed and dusty with another lot of books to give away, listed below in no particular order. This time around, no more than three titles per person, please. Will mail them to the first person who e-mails -- mentioning the titles, along with a mailing address. Your time starts now.

Bitter Chocolate: Child Sexual Abuse in India, by Pinki Virani*
The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier, by Bruce Sterling
Stamboul Train, by Graham Greene
Friends, Lovers, Chocolate, by Alexander McCall Smith
Forest of the Pygmies, by Isabel Allende*
Life Lessons, by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler*
The Jane Austen Book Club, by Karen Joy Fowler
Waiting For Snow in Havana, by Carlos Eire*
Days of Innocence: Stories For Ruskin Bond

Update: Zigzackly, the Marauder's Map and Banjo are early claimants; the books marked with asterisks, above, are still available.


  • What a coincidence- I just got rid of a Kubler-Ross (not the one you have, another joyous one about death and out-of-body experiences). I have "Stamboul Train" and "The Jane Austen Book Club" lurking somewhere on my bookshelves as well.

    You have a really enjoyable blog. Good luck with the giveaway.

  • How do you decide which books to give away?

  • SK: Thank you.
    MM: Very difficult! Of this lot, some are duplicate copies, some are review copies and some, one has outgrown :)

  • prufrock, just remembered this, sorry. book crossing: here and at Wikipedia, it's a public book exchange of sorts.
