The original list of free books went fairly quickly.  In continuing to get ready for downsizing I'm once again offering the following books free of charge - you just pay the postage.  For the time being I'd like to ship a minimum of three books for each request, and will be using PayPal for payment of the postage.  Due to time constraints I need to move these books by end of January.  Any remaining books will be donated to a local charity.


Please PM me if you're interested in any of the following books:
