Current situation regarding my books.

I am now selling all my books for fair prices, including my purchased review books – most of the latter with my pencil marks as marginalia. Books listed via various links here: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/navigation-backstory/. The search box above is also very efficient. And there are a few specific links in the first comment below.
Simply, make an offer to me at dflewis48@hotmail.com.

I intend to continue buying books and reviewing them. This exercise is not caused by a particular need for money, but by a need for more space and for less of a future burden to those who would inherit my books.

I anticipate this process taking up to ten years from 2018 when it started.

Spontaneous comments to me from someone when first hearing about this exercise:
“Gosh I can’t get my head around that thought – the collection not being together – all of which have all the annotations from your real-time reviews… […] I suppose there is something amazing about the thought that your annotated books will rest on shelves around the earth, but I am sort of unable to concentrate on anything right now thinking that your amazing and unique collection is not all in one place, forever…”

Well, I’d be willing to sign the pencil-annotated books in pen, if asked!

Any future successful offer will be eligible, if requested, for a free copy of one of Nemonymous volumes 1 to 5, Weirdtongue or Only Connect.

  1. I am deliberately doing this over ten years, without an intermediary, as I want to say a personal goodbye to each book as I infuse its spirit.
    My memories of each book are also enshrined in my on-line Gestalt Real-Time Reviews, and incorporated in hard copy books, too.

    — Written by me recently during a FB discussion!

  2. “Every book has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
    —from ‘The Shadow Of The Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

  4. Written this to a ‘customer’ today –
    “As a “fair price” combines my knowledge of the prospective owner as well as the actual perceived monetary and spiritual value of the book, the answer is yes.”
