Book Giveaway

The other day on her blog Wendy Knits!, Wendy came up with what I thought was a great idea. She is giving away books once she has finished reading them.

I live in a small library - sure there are dogs and finches and some other people too, and a whole roomful of yarn, but mostly there are books. Tons and tons of books. I keep quite a few of the books I read but I "recycle" twice that many.

You know what really sucks? There are really no good used bookstores around here. I have to drive about 40 minutes into Virginia to go to a good used bookstore. Needless to say I don't make this trek very often so the "giveaway" books are starting to pile up. Besides, I have more credit than I can use at the used bookstore - and for me that is really saying something!

So I am going to take a page out of Wendy's book (harhar) and start offering some of the books I have finished here on the blog.

First up is:

Lincoln's Melancholy
by Joshua Wolf Shenk. Click on the link to read about it on Amazon. I thought this book was an interesting exploration on the subject of depression and especially how the public perception of depression was viewed so differently in the past.

Email me (link at the top of my sidebar) or leave a comment here if you would like this book.

I don't want anything in return - just consider this a "pay it forward" and do you own good deed when you can. :)
