Want to give some books away- what do I do?

Hi all,
I have a few books I would gladly give away (the only payment I would ask for is P&P). How would I do this? New to HUKD so don't know much.
Thx

just make a thread with a list of books with postage cost and let people post replies as to what they want :), once its been confirmed can exchange adresses and payment info via private message

well, they're not recent ones. there's some maureen lee books (who's a writer from liverpool- my faves) some jackie collins, some autobiography's (jeremy clarkson, posh n becks) but i'd have to get the full list cant remember anything more than these. if you're interested, i'll pm you a list tomorrow

I'm pretty sure you have to put the thread in the misc now as they didn't want people building up loads of feedback by giving away stuff

That may have changed again now though

thank you, I am interested. I like bits such as Candace bushnell... (sex and the city) which is quite old... the book i read before my current one was the wag's diary! :oops: please do pm me a list! I'm very interested... I hate payig RRP on books! :oops: far too over priced considering there's no tax on them!

Have you tried Readit swapit? It's basically a website where you list books that you no longer want and you swap them with books on other peoples lists, all it costs you is the P & P.
