Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

More Free Books for my Readers

Everyone loves free books, right? Well, I know I do, and since I’ve got a huge stack of books in my apartment that are seeking a loving home, I want to share them with you. These books are duplicates of review copies, advance reading copies and uncorrected proofs as well as some books that I purchased. All books are in excellent (like new) shape, unless otherwise noted. I am offering them to you several times per week for the next few months, free of charge, although I will ask you to pay the cost of the shipping envelope and postage for mailing each book to you. Below the jump is a list of books that I am offering to you on a first-come first-sent basis;

The House on Fortune Street: A Novel by Margot Livesey. Review copy. Hardback (the cover is different from what you see for the paperback shown on the Amazon page). I liked this book, but didn’t get the review to a state where I wanted to share it.

The Other by David Guterson. Review copy. Hardback.

How and Why Species Multiply: The Radiation of Darwin’s Finches (Princeton Series in Evolutionary Biology) by Peter R. Grant and B. Rosemary Grant. Review copy. Hardback. [my review] (NOTE: this is an EXTRA copy! I am keeping a copy already!)

Unholy Business: A True Tale of Faith, Greed and Forgery in the Holy Land by Nina Burleigh. Review copy. Hardback. [my review]

Falconer on the Edge: A Man, His Birds, and the Vanishing Landscape of the American West by Rachel Dickinson. Review copy. Hardback. [my review]

Elsewhere in the Land of Parrots: A Novel by Jim Paul. Review copy. Paperback. Out of print. (NOTE: this is an extra copy; I would not part with my original copy!)

Experimental Heart: A Novel by Jennifer L. Rohn. Uncorrected proof. Paperback. The cover is different from the one you see on the Amazon page. (NOTE: This is an extra copy! I am keeping my original copy). [my review]

The Meinertzhagen Mystery: The Life and Legend of a Colossal Fraud by Brian Garfield. Review copy. Paperback. [my review]

Freaks of Nature: What Anomalies Tell Us About Development and Evolution by Mark S. Blumberg. Review copy. Hardback.

Kitchens of India “Indian Classical Duets” (CD). Vol 3 (2 copies); Vol 4 (1 copy); Vol 5 (2 copies).

If you want any of these books (or CDs), let me know which ones (in comments) and I’ll send you email asking for your address so I can get these books (or CDs, or both) shipped ASAP. I will be giving away a similar number of books every few days for the next couple months until they have all been dispersed to new homes. All unclaimed books will be donated to the NYPL. Any claimed books that I do not have mailing addresses for within 7 days of them first being spoken for will be offered to my readers once again.

    The Meinertzhagen Mystery: The Life and Legend of a Colossal Fraud, I’d be really grateful . . .

    all books for which i have addresses for have been sent and some are arriving already (YAY, for the efficiency of a government-run institution, the post office!). if you have not sent me an address for a book that you’ve asked for, please do so in the next 24 hours, otherwise, the book will be offered once again to the first person who asks.
