Black Daggers

I am going to do something I rarely do. I am going to give away books.

These are not duplicate books, but books that had been in my collection which I no longer want. And I’m not giving them away completely free, because I would very much like for someone else to pay shipping. But shipping books via media mail* is cheaper, at any rate, than buying the books oneself.

The books in question are JR Ward’s Black Dagger series, #3-6. That’s Lover Awakened, Lover Revealed, Lover Unbound, and Lover Enshrined, for those who don’t remember or didn’t know.

And I just realized – the timing on this is great. The 7th book, Lover Avenged, comes out this month in hardback.

I read these books and enjoyed them to a point, but not enough to continue with the series. (I loved books 1 & 2, and am keeping those.) However, I know that there are lots of fans who may not own the books yet. If that is you and you are willing to pay shipping, let me know in the comments and I’ll see what the response is like. I’m thinking I’ll evaluate on Friday (April 24) and see whether I need to do a drawing or something.

And if no one wants the books? I’ll donate them to my local library, so you needn’t fear that they will be completely discarded.

* I’m not sure about media mail to Canada or elsewhere. I believe it still works, but I’m not sure if it is still cost effective.

Here’s an example of the domestic media mail pricing – I did a test on usps.gov, and it looks like my estimate for one book would be around $2.25 to mail. Much cheaper than the $6.99 list price plus tax.

  1. You know, if you don’t have any takers, you can always use them as bookcrossing books. I did this with several books and had a lot of fun. One of my books found it’s way to a SF doctor who found it on BART where I left it. You can check out the program at bookcrossing.com
