    Fiction books free to anyone, having a clear out

    Morning all, having a clear out at the house and have got around 50 mostly paper back books free to anyone that wants to collect, i will be at the Imperial Mae Ping for a few days and i am willing to keep them in the car if someone wants them.
    only 1 condition- any taker has the lot.
    Thanks
    Alan

    If nobody steps up, small expat-owned/frequented bars/pubs are usually very pleased to add to their library.

    That's George's place. Bloody good bloke and a bloody good book shop.
    I think he's going sell that business and concentrate on his other shop which is smaller.

    Understandable. My mate is in CM but is going to pick up a pick-up in KhonKaen in the next day or so.

    Are you at the Imperial Mae Ping now? I have is mobile number so I could call the hotel and leave a message for you there. I'd leave the message for lamphun alan, which should work.

    Up to you.

    I'm sure you're right but I don't use FB and wouldn't even know where to start.

    Right Alan, he's flying to KK tomorrow then driving back. I've emailed him the Mai Ping number and he'll leave a message as I suggested above.
    I hope it all works out. I'd take the books myself with alacrity but it's a 5 hour drive from my place and I'm a sick at the moment, more's the pity.

    Message sent to Peter, so I guess it's up to him now.
    I like to see books go to a good home.
    Cheers

    Me too, wouldn’t like to see them wasted or more likely burnt by the father in law while he looks after the house.

    Absolutely.
    Peter just emailed me to say he's calling now.
    I hope it all works out.

    You're right. The market is awash with books. I know George has a warehouse of stock beside the thousands of volumes he has in the shop.

    Excellent, good for you both.
    Hopefully I'll get them when he's read them.
