Please do not be impatient if you do not receive a response immediately, I try to respond as quickly as possible, but I can't always guarantee how prompt I'll be. Feel free to contact me a second time if you haven't heard back from me.
I will be away from home most of the summer which means that I only have internet access about twice or three times a week. Please be patient.
I prefer to post within Europe but will consider requests overseas, especially if the person making the request sends out of their own country as well, and even more so if the moocher is going for more than one book. Financially it does make a huge difference.
Unfortunately the Swiss postal services just decided that every parcel has to be registered, so this adds quite a fee to the already not inexpensive mailing costs. This is a flat fee, for one book or several. For this reason I will give preference to moochers willing to mooch more than one book.
I live in a smoke and pet free household, however most of my books are second hand and I don't know where they've all been.
PLEASE NOTE: Almost all of my books available for mooching are BOOKCROSSING books which means they have a bookcrossing label inside. (Usually this is on the inside of the front cover, so not visible from the outside of the book if that makes a difference to you). So please don't mooch my books if you are after a brand new unmarked book, even if many of mine are in excellent condition. It would be fantastic if you were willing to journal reception of them at (and if you like, later note your impressions) - even anonymously, if you prefer.
I try to list the condition notes for all books but if you want more detailed information just email me.
I don't necessarily have access to a computer everyday, so please be patient if I don't respond immediately.
Please, as mentioned above, consider mooching more than one book at a time, as this cuts postal expenses. I send books slow post to save money.
