I’m clearing off bookshelves to raise money so we can continue renovating an old homestead into an Emergency Housing & Retreat Center for folks in need in Roane County, WV. For the cost of postage and whatever donation you can afford, you get to choose however many free used books you want!! Since they’re books from a Catholic Worker Farm, genres include things like: Appalachia, Homesteading, Prayer&Spirituality, Justice Issues, Religious Studies, and a few Fiction, Non-Fiction and Poetry. These have been collected, given as gifts, or left with me, over the course of the last 30 years. Most of them are in great shape, while a handful have been overly loved. Thanks for your generosity for this great cause.
1) Choose from the remaining books below.
2) Email me at email@example.com with your choice/s of title/s and your postal mailing address.
3) I will reply with the cost of postage and will send them out to you as soon as possible.
4) When you receive your book/s please mail a check or money order for postage and donation made payable to:
81 Puddle Run
Spencer, WV 25276
**with “Books” in the memo line.
Or use this link to pay online.
5) Enjoy your book and/or pass it on to someone who will!
