Due to out-of-town guests, I won't be able to get to mooch requests right away. I'll be able to catch-up to any requests by mid-January 2014 at the latest. Thanks very much for mooching !!
When I ship, I will email you the USPS barcode for tracking. Normally, I take books to the post office once every few weeks, but if you mooch more than one book, I will send your mooches on the next business day.

Some books are bulk-added and don't have condition notes yet (feel free to email me questions). Books range from good condition to used, old, and worn, possibly dusty with age or with pricestickers. We have a non-smoking house with cats.

International mooches welcome. Please see my bio for weight and size limits -- if you mooch two, generally I will refund a point to you.

Free: Bookmooch cards and bookmarks (see my bio for details). Free to first requester (along with a mooch): The Charlie Rose Science Series Anthology DVD (2008) (see )

International Moochers: Unless the book is light, please mooch at least two books which fit in the USPS Flat Rate Packaging -- ask me if you're not sure. However, a second mooch is not necessary if your book weights less than 7 ounces (under 20 ounces for Canada, under 12 ounces for Mexico). [If you want something that doesn't fit, depending on weight and what your other mooches are, maybe we can work something out.]

Angel Moochers: Please request at least 3 books that fit into the USPS flat rate packaging.

A SINCERE THANKS to John and all the others behind BookMooch for providing me and others a useful way to send so many of my books directly on to those who can use them!!!! As I have time to go through my shelves, I will be adding more inventory from time to time.

I have a number of projects which I am working on for which I am mooching books, and when I am done I will be listing many of the relevant mooched books in my inventory to be released back into the bookmooch world. (Stay tuned for my knitting book give-away contest).
Additionally, any excess points I earn will go toward the library that they are finally building in my community ( ). Until it opens we have only a "bookmobile" which visits once a week.

- Knitting, including ethnic/folk styles, lace knitting, and antique/vintage knitting
- North Indian music, especially regard to ragas and sitar or sarod.
- Guatemala and the Mayan world, past & present.
If you have something in these categories that is not on my wishlist, I'd love email to see if it is something I can use. Thanks!
