  8. This is a sure-fire way to show everyone your worldly knowledge. I think I'll spread them around the house, some open, some not, just so it looks like all I read are Nobel Prize books. Instant friend boost.

  20. I have never seen a bibliophile before who generously gives an abundance of books!
    Be it old or new, books of memorable writings will suffice my voracious reading habit.
    I will be so gleeful if you can kindly send me those books!
    Thank you!

  23. I'd like to enter - in order to give these to a young friend. She's going through a lot right now, having lost someone near and dear to her through... well... bigotry. She's heart-broken right now and I'd do almost anything to give her a lift. She's a young writer and graphic artist - she would love them.
