Books for sale


Twenty-five titles, all non-fiction--roughly my reading list for the last year and a half or so. They're effectively at 50-60 percent off their original prices, and in good to very good condition (I'm OC when it comes to my books). Interested? Please holler at gibbs_c@yahoo.com or my FB page if we're friends there (I posted the photo earlier on my wall--the titles in red have been reserved). I'll throw in one free--Robert D. Kaplan's Balkan Ghosts: A Journey Through History--for anyone who buys the most number of titles. To get the books, you may drop by the Inquirer office on weekdays after 5 p.m., kindly just let me know beforehand via e-mail. Going, going...
