Books to go

It is said that when you know the books a person keeps and the ones they give away, you have a window into their soul.  Actually, I don’t know if that’s “said” because I’m pretty sure I just made it up.  Nevertheless, below is a list of books I’m giving away today to Got Books? — which sends donated books overseas to our troops, or gives them to educators or nonprofits here in the U.S — glean what insight you can from it:

  • Agee, Jonis. A .38 Special and a Broken Heart. Minneapolis: Coffee House P, Distributor, Consortium Books Sales & Distribution, 1995.
