Giveaway: 45 Books and a Shelf - Contest Closed






One of the things I always hear when I give away a large amount of books is that "I'll have to clear some shelf space!" I hope this solves that problem, as I am giving away the shelf as well.

45 books, mostly smaller sets and collections, some handsome Everyman's Library volumes, some Shakespeare, some Dickens - something for everyone. I picked up the shelf at a garage sale over the weekend, solid wood, sturdy, and best of all, made in Poland.

10:00 AM has arrived. Off to pick a winner, I hope to be back shortly with the winner.
