Item Name & Description: a large USPS Priority Mail flat-rate box (12" x 12" x 5-1/2"), filled with your selection of books from this list.

We have moved to reading almost exclusively in electronic format, and as a result are getting rid of many books that we will never (re-)read in paper. Six hundred fifty-five of them, to be precise.

The top three bidders will give me a prioritized list of books from the above link, and I will fit as many as I can into each winner's box. If the lists overlap I will allocate the books based on priority, space, and if necessary the flip of a coin; my decisions are final.

(Updated x2:) The boxes hold, very roughly, 3-5 hardcovers, 5-ish trade paperbacks, plus a few mass market paperbacks; or 10-ish trade paperbacks with a few mmpbs; or 15+ mmpbs. Here's a picture:

(Note that Inda is a damn thick book; it's flush with two trade paperbacks on the other side.)

Starting Bid: $15.

Notes: U.S. only; the USPS will ship these flat-rate boxes internationally but it is very expensive. If anyone is nevertheless seriously interested in international shipping, drop me a comment and we'll talk.

Bid in one thread, please; again, top three will win.

E-mail: knepveu@steelypips.org

Bidding is now open and ends Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Bid: $20
Weighting my need for more books (negligible) against the fact that you've got Aiken, Alexander, and the Company novels on the first page alone... and the chance for more good books wins out.

Hi--you've won the third and final box! Please pay here http://con-or-bust.livejournal.com/119979.html .

I'd appreciate it if you could pay & send your list of books ASAP--the other two winners have already done so, but I can't send their boxes until I have your list so I can check for overlaps (well, if I don't hear from you I'll just go with their lists, but I hope it won't come to that). Thanks!
