Loyal ScienceBlogs reader Dr. Kim D. Gainer is moving to a newly-renovated office (Yay!) that is smaller than her current office — which means that some of the goodies on her bookshelves are in need of new homes.
That’s where you come in.
If folks would like any of these books, they should e-mail me at email@example.com, and I will ship them out to them, no strings attached. There is no fine print to this offer! I will cover the postage (media rate, of course, so people shouldn’t expect the books to appear via next day FedEx). I simply want these books to do the most good.
Here are the books she’s hoping to relocate:
Attenborough, David. Life on Earth: A Natural History. Boston: Little, Brown, 1979 (hardcover). – TAKEN
Dawkins, Richard. The Blind Watchmaker. NY: W.W. Norton, 1987. (paperback) – TAKEN
Dudley, William. Genetic Engineering: Opposing Viewpoints. San Diego, CA: Greenhaven, 1990. (paperback) – TAKEN
Gould, Stephen Jay. The Mismeasure of Man. NY: W.W. Norton, 1981. (paperback) – TAKEN
Gould, Stephen Jay. Wonderful Life. NY: W.W. Norton, 1989. – TAKEN
McCollister, Betty, ed. Voices for Evolution. Introduction by Isaac Asimov. Berkeley, CA: The National Center for Science Education, 1989. (paperback) – TAKEN
Sagan, Carl. Broca’s Brain: Reflections on the Romance of Science. NY: Random House, 1979. (hardcover) – TAKEN
Shapiro, Robert. Origins: A Skeptic’s Guide to the Creation of Life on Earth. NY: Bantam Books, 1987. (paperback–pages yellowing, presumably not acid free paper) – TAKEN
Thomas, Lewis. Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Mahler’s Ninth Symphony. NY: Viking, 1983. (hardcover) – TAKEN
None of them is more recent than 1990, but some of them are classics. (Note that Dawkins, Gould, and Sagan are represented, and a prospective school teacher might want to snag Attenborough’s Life on Earth for his classroom.) They are all in excellent condition except for the Shapiro paperback, whose pages are yellowing.
