the great book giveaway
Once upon a time I was involved with trying to help a mainstream church become more relevant. (Rev SS can vouch for me!)
Long story short, that didn't work too well for me. So now I am dechurched and have 15 (count 'em, 15!) books for which I would like to find new homes.
If any of you revgals want any or all of these books, let me know and I will mail them to you for FREE! (Granted I will send them cheap book rate.) Just leave me a comment -- then we'll e-mail and I'll get your address that way. First come; first served.
If there is no interest, I'll take them to Powell's Books and trade 'em in. They are all in good shape.
