Books for my Friends

Hello friends, I am getting rid of around 114 of my books as part of an effort to minimize my stuff. If you live in Austin and would like one of these, please just let me know. The rest I’m going to sell and/or donate. There are also a few DVDs listed at the end.

Spread the love.

Note: Awesome books are italicized; books in bold are promised to somebody else.

Each link goes to my edition on Goodreads.

These are in no particular order.
