So fair readers, I am here to ask you a favor. Please take my books. This house is badly in need of a book purge, and my gain can also be your gain. I've chosen a random assortment to present to you in hopes that you'll take them off my hands. Some, I'd prefer went to bloggers because I somewhat mistakenly picked them up at BEA or accepted them as review copies only to find that they're not well suited to me, but I'd still like to see someone review them, even if that someone is not me. Others are fair game for everyone.
I've also decided that I'm not in the mood for a massive comment leaving, Random.org choosing, behemoth of a giveaway, so I'm going the first come first served route. If you see a book on the list and you want it, leave a comment to claim it, then send your snail mail address to toadacious1 at yahoo dot com. One per person please. Please note, all but the "BEA Mistakes" category stand the chance of coming with a Bookcrossing label in them. You, of course, are not required to journal them (even though I would like that), but I'd appreciate it if you would leave the label intact in case you ever happen to give the books away to people who might journal them. If the prospect of the book having a Bookcrossing label in it displeases you, please don't enter.
I love my international friends, but I also love having a few bucks in my checking account, so I will give away books to those outside the U.S., but only 3. Please put your country in your "book claiming" comment so that I will know when to cut off international entries. Also, please note, some books I've made U.S. only right off the bat because they're big heavy hardbacks or otherwise massive.
All right, I think I've covered all the rules and regulations and exceptions to the exceptions. Now, on to the books!
First the BEA mistakes. They look good, but not so good for me.
The first 4 are ARCs of middle grade titles coming in the fall from Little, Brown.
President of the Whole Fifth Grade by Sherri Winston

Then, a nice hardback book that came in a tote bag that I didn't know contained a book!
The 72 Names of God by Yehuda Berg
And a book that was pressed into my hands at the last minute that seemed
Redemption Corps (An Imperial Guard Novel) by Rob Sanders
