i'm just a literary tease, my reputation's on its knees.

Free Books for YOU!

March 06, 2005

Weird, I've been having browser troubles with Firefox. I've been using Firefox pretty much exclusively since December or so and I've never had any problems with it before. Yesterday, however, I thought it would be a *brilliant* idea to change my login id. I knew what name I had used and was frustrated to realize that the darn thing wouldn't work.

I immediately contacted Dr. J in a frustrated panic - a whole week without blogging? Oh god! Would would I do with my free time? Homework? *shudders at the thought*

Anyway, I got a new user id set up (thanks!) but that wouldn't work either! Finally, I decided to try it with IE just to be sure and, boom, I'm in! And that's all fine and good but IE crashes every two seconds and pollutes my vision with pop-ups. Horrors!

I'm very proud of myself - I figured out the problem (I basically needed to clear Firefox's memory) and now, despite the major carpal tunnels pains I am experiencing today [ my hand looks like a claw! for real!], here I am updating. Whew!

But hey! Readers - attention! Anyone want any FREE books??? I have a GIANT box of books that I will be donating to the local thrift store soon - stuff ranging from classic fiction (like Heller's Catch-22 & Tolstoy's War and Peace to random non-fiction stuff (a book on religious cults, a few cookbooks, etc.)

My hands are crampy so I can't type up a list - but if you want FREE books, leave a comment telling me what kind of books you would like to read and I'll let you know if I have anything up your alley.

Moira! I'll take them ALL!

I'm in new of new books and anything I can get my hand on would be worth it.

Give me an email sometime soon (or do what did--set it up so that the comments on your blog are emailed to you) so I can give you my address or phone # so we can talk about me getting these books.

Hey Moira, do you think I could have Heller's Catch-22? I have been wanting to read that for a while.

Absolutely, Mike! I'll bring by the writing center next time I work :c) (And, Lou, don't worry if that's one you wanted to read because I have two copies! :c)

I've never actually heard of that particular book. However, after reading the description on the amazon.com (aint the Internet vonderful?) it seems like a good anti-war read!

Lou - Catch 22 is definitely a good book. I read it a while ago but remember enjoying it. :c)
