I'd love for them to go to friends. If they don't sell here I'll post them on eBay. I've got prices on everything, we'd just need to add in the shipping cost for anything you'd like. My payPal addy is bstaton @ iglou.com, without the spaces.
If there is anything you'd like, if you wouldn't mind, could you send payment via Friends and Family? That way they don't take all the fees out. I'll send them Media Mail to save on shipping because some of the books are really heavy! Here's the list:

Before I go fall in bed to sleep a couple of hours, I just wanted to thank you all. Between what I've sold, and help sent via payPal, I've gotten a bunch of little bills, our Water Bill and our Gas & Electric bills paid! I still need to sell enough for food, gas, a $100 medical bill and to cover our auto insurance bill, but things are so much better than they were!
I honestly don't know what I'd do without you guys. Your love and support mean the world to me, I love and cherish you all. I promise to do my best to pay things forward every day, in every way that I can. Thank you so, so much!
I am noticing that the first running interval each time is almost always uncomfortable, but everything seems to loosen up by the second or third, so I'm trying to make sure I take that first one as gently as possible while still actually running, and trusting that it will get better (and so far it always has). I am definitely reaching the point of actively enjoying most of the running intervals and coming out of the overall exercise with a nice endorphin buzz. Whee.
( Spoilers liked the season as a whole, but this is the second ep which made me throw up my hands )
However, there's also a rarer pleasure found in some books, I read them slowly to savor them and fall into them. Nina Kiriki Hoffman's The Red Heart of Memories and Past the Size of Dreaming are novels like this, and so is Lois McMaster Bujold's Paladin of Souls. My awesome new friend alatefeline loaned me this book, and told me it was one of their favorites - I now see why.
Although this week had too much work, with both writing about dragons and revising the book I'm developing, I found a bit of time for reading, and read the last third of the book tonight. It is a lovely book. It's not one of those with brilliant new ideas, and I was familiar with the setting from Bujold's quite good Penric novellas. Instead, it a book that focuses on its characters and their choices, and above all on the protagonist and her choices and her life. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

The teasers continue to look beautiful!
Book recommendation of the week: Normal People, by Sally Rooney. I’ve been dying for this to come out because I loved her first book so much, and I devoured it as soon as it was released this week. It’s the story of an on-again, off-again relationship that starts in high school and continues into college, taking different forms as the two people themselves do. I actually think Conversations with Friends was better, but I will read anything Sally Rooney writes from this day until the end of days.
I was just reminded of this when I saw a person whose (innocuous) post I and others had reblogged with random comments go don't have this discussion on my blog!, which. I feel you, person! But that's not how Tumblr works! Once you post something it is gone. People can respond to it and interact with it in ways you may find doesn't match your original intent because Tumblr is a platform where you pass things around.
And because I have a Dreamwidth I can share this and people can read it and then if anyone wants to have a discussion about Tumblr there are comments! That I can moderate, even! I won't have the frustration of it wandering off to some far corner and turn into a discussion on... IDK, "We should all move back to LiveJournal" or something else that would annoy me to be looped in on through notifications.
So grateful to Dreamwidth for still being here, and for everyone who's stuck with it and come back and just taken it up for making this my internet home. ♥
Another sad thing is that most of the petals from the blooming trees have already fallen off from many hard rains and high winds. I barely got to enjoy them.
But nobody ever takes my excellent advice, and so they won't stop talking about those schools, and so I keep on reading. It's like a very boring trainwreck that I narrowly escaped but not really.
With that said, I have to admire the NY Times slipping in this snide commentary in this article here: “The bureaucrats who run these school districts have swallowed hook, line and sinker the idea of racial diversity” as an essential part of education in America, added Mr. Yoo, who is best known as the legal architect of Mr. Bush’s so-called torture memos.
Man, that's some serious, if factually-accurate, shade.
On the subject of affirmative action, way in the comments to that article somebody quoted Clarence Thomas opining that affirmative action just makes people doubt the merits of blacks. I will go on the record as saying that it is neither his race nor the specter of affirmative action that makes me doubt Clarence Thomas' credentials, capacity for critical thought, jurisprudence, or ethics. In fact, I have made it a long-standing policy to support what he doesn't, just on general principle, and that policy has yet to steer me wrong. So if Clarence Thomas is against affirmative action, that is certainly good enough for me.
(No, I do not intend to get into a discussion here and now about whether or not policies intended to increase representation of some or all racial minorities are good or bad, or if they're racist against other minorities and/or any or all whites, either in the abstract or with regard to specific situations. Not nearly enough spoons for that today.)
( Simple, for a god. )
