Hey everyone,

I have a ton of books I need to get rid of. Tried Craigslist awhile back, only got rid of half. I hope you will take them and read them, and will be pissed off if you try and sell them. I already tried returning them to Borders, and they won't accept them.

The price of each book is $1, unless otherwise marked, and textbooks are $5.


Sci Fi/Fantasy:

As a set, $6 - the first 6 Ender books by Orson Scott Card, including: Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, Children of the Mind, Shadow of the Hegemon.

The Subtle Knife, by Phillip Pullman
Green Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson
Parable of the Sower, by Octavia Butler
The Vampire Armand, by Anne Rice (hardcover, with dust jacket)


Some kids books:

Walk Two Moons, by Creech
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, by Taylor
Dragonwings, by Yep
Black Boy, by Wright
The Brothers Karamozov, by Dostoevsky (hardcover, BN edition)


History:

The God of the Witches, by Margaret Murray
The Rise of Magic in Early Medieval Europe, by Valerie Flint


Textbooks:

Principles of Protein X-Ray Crystallography, 2nd Edition

Study Guide for Organic Chemistry, 4th Edition (by Ege)

Numerical and Analytical Methods for Scientists and Engineer using Matlab, by Dubin (an asshole at UCSD)

Some physics lecture notes from UCSD undergraduate, like Quantum Physics, etc. From 2003-2004, email me for details.


GRE Prep:

Barron's How to Prepare for the GRE Test, 14th Edition (this one had actual questions from when I took the GRE in 2004)

Kaplan's GRE and GMAT Math Workbook (from 2004)
Kaplan's GRE Verbal Workbook (from 2004)



Please email me at ekomega (at) yahoo . (com) if you are interested. I am in Mission Valley, and we can arrange pickup at the Borders or Bevmo there. I only take cash.

Is is the price point? I figure someone would want some of these. They're only $1.

I could give 'em away. Who would want them then? Although, then you'd be stealing from the library (they also pay $0 for books). If you can live with that, I might just give them away. I just want to be rid of them.

Here are some descriptions of the books to raise interest:


Ender Books - Ender grows up as a boy, saves the Earth, and then flies around the universe preaching Mormonism and making friends with aliens. His friend Bean from the first book is the main character of a couple of these.

The Subtle Knife, by Phillip Pullman - sequel to the blockbuster bomb, The Golden Compass. Better than the first. Probably will never be made into a movie now.

Green Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson - sequel to Red Mars and prequel to Blue Mars, about people colonizing Mars, and the troubles associated. The author did a lot of research for these books, and they won awards.

Parable of the Sower, by Octavia Butler - post-apocalyptic coming of age story about a young african american girl who wants to find a place in the horrible world of the future. It's good, but kind of out there.

The Vampire Armand, by Anne Rice (hardcover, with dust jacket) - a gay vampire (he really is gay) is born in Italy, lives a long time, sucks some cock, and bites a couple people. He made Lestat.

Walk Two Moons, by Creech - coming of age story about a native american girl whose mom abandoned her and her father

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, by Taylor - coming of age story, and racial narrative, about an african american girl and her family in the south

Dragonwings, by Yep - chinese family living in San Francisco lives through the 1906 earthquake and builds a plane

Black Boy, by Wright - african american fellow grows up around america, esp. chicago, and has some problems because of race. A classic.

The Brothers Karamozov, by Dostoevsky (hardcover, BN edition) - russian guys do russian things (drink vodka) and occasionally participate in that one russian dance (with their legs kicking out, you know what I mean).

The God of the Witches, by Margaret Murray - The book that proposed a one nature god theory about witches, which was loved by many wiccans, until it was completely disproved by modern study (which wiccans just ignore). A classic 30 years ago.

The Rise of Magic in Early Medieval Europe, by Valerie Flint - Along the lines of the last book, involves witchcraft development and ideas throughout the middle ages, but most of it debunked by modern scholastics. Used to be academically significant, and is still read at the Seven Sisters and other hippie liberal womyn's colleges.
