Books!

Post by Palinka (RIP) »

I have a library of books on Drunkardism and Drinks. I will try to scan/list them.

What I am proposing is, that I am prepared to send any of my books out, to anyone who is interested enough to read them/it, and will pass the book on to the next drunkard.

What say you? Who's in?

Count me in. The books are probably pulp fiction stories. Send them on...

I have read 3 1/2 books in the past 2 weeks. I need more books. Please count me in on this.

This sounds great. I've read a few, but other than the Lost Generation stuff, it's hard to find good writing that has to do with drinking. Could you post a list of what you have?

i've never classified my books according to subject like that, except for my booze recipe ones. Now I am inspired to do so. Must the books be about drinking, or can the writers merely be drunks?

I'd be interested in reading one of these "book" things. I'll send some of mine along to the next drunkard as well. I would like to know if there are any restrictions or if this is an open book exchange.

I classify them separately. Hemingway and such are books by drunks (and therefore have somewhat to do with drinking, but it's not the subject matter); there are plenty of "dry" books about drinking itself; Kingsley Amis' "Everyday Drinking" is both.

Free the information! Send whatever you believe may be interesting with instructions to either return it or pass it on*. Then it is up to the recipient to read it (or not).

I have books about drinking, about drunks, by drunks, pulp (which are good to read whilst drinking) and a slew of other stuff. I will try to get my lazy arse around to scanning them into the machine and then set up a Library topic (unless someone else sets the topic up first) with the list.

* As I mentioned to Mr Viking, privately; there are some books that I am happy to loan out but would like returned (either eventually or between loans) and some that are give-aways that I would be happy to be passed around (hopefully with each drunkard reader making a comment on the inside cover/opening pages) until said books fall apart. I shall make a notation beside each listed book indicating my preference.
