An etiquette question…

So I’ve been weeding through my bookshelves. Weeding is too mild a word, actually—taking a turbocharged weedwhacker to them is more like it.

One thing I discovered is that I have duplicates of some of my favorite books because I later got signed copies and there is no way in hell they’re going to the dump. I’d love to have a “package” giveaway—like a print copy of Forever Again along with a half-dozen of my favorite books.

Things that make you say hmmmm…

There’s been a whole lot of stuff making me scratch my head and think :wtf: on the net lately.
