Book Unhaul

These are a few books that I’m giving away to either the library or Goodwill (with the exception of one):

  1. Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix — While the idea of a haunted IKEA store held promise, the story did not meet my expectations. I cannot stand horror anything! But this book was anything but horrific. I found it to be corny and cliché.
  2. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein — This book was great, and I will be doing a review of it soon. I’m giving it away because I own two copies of it, and I don’t have the luxury of owning multiple copies of the same book (lack of space) so I’ll be keeping my beautiful Harper Olive Perennial edition and giving this other one away.
  3. This Is Not A Book by Keri Smith — I bought a box set of Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal. The set includes Wreck This Journal, Mess, The Pocket Scavenger, and This Is Not A Book. I have a pen pal who loves anything Keri Smith so I will be sending this to him because I highly doubt I will get around to working on it.
  4. Silent Spring by Rachel Carson — This book was published in the 1960s, and it is deemed as a classic study on environmental science. Packed with extensive detail, Carson comes across as knowledgeable and persistent as she tackles the subject of harmful pesticides. I actually enjoyed this book; I just don’t see myself picking it up again in the foreseeable future because I had initially bought it for my Environmental Science class.
  5. Not Quite What I Was Planning (6 Word Memoirs) edited by Smith Magazine — Smith Magazine asked subscribers to submit a six-word autobiography. Although some were funny and others were sad, I found the collection to be too random for my taste.
  6. I’m also thinking about giving away People Who Eat Darkness by Richard Lloyd Perry and The Age of MIracles by Karen Thompson Walker. I’ll be doing a review of the latter sometime this month (I hope).

Just a small shelf cleanse!
