Reply Linda says: June 26, 2023 at 5:03 pm Thanks for the tip on the post office! I walked 2 blocks (borrowed a rolling crate) and spent $27 shipping my books! Reply Gene Ambaum says: June 27, 2023 at 7:39 am Excellent glad that worked out for you! Reply Pharmadan says: June 27, 2023 at 4:58 pm Oh it’s Esther! We haven’t seen her for a while Reply Gene Ambaum says: June 28, 2023 at 7:09 am Yeah, I need to figure out what she’s up to other than going to a conference. 🙂 Reply Elliot says: September 3, 2023 at 1:52 pm When I went to my first ALA get-together way back in…well, way, way back, I would take _every_ freebie I could get my hands on and ended up recycling as much as I could before stuffing my suitcase and backpack. As the years went by, I took fewer and fewer giveaways and, after a certain number of years, you’d have to _pay_ me to take almost anything. Nowadays, I will only accept something really practical, so enough bags, hot beverage mugs, travel containers, posters, pens, post-its, etc., and definitely no ARCs. No room for any more books either. Novel idea: borrow books and media from libraries.
