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.

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!
