Books for Sale!


I can’t believe we’ve blown through the first week of December already. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed and this is about the time I start to panic about holiday gifts. Also in less than 4 months Jeremy and I are moving back to San Francisco, so in the spirit of trying to “lessen the load” as well as save up for our move, we are getting rid of some of our books for cheap! Between the two of us, we have everything from novels, to drawing, film and even some really nice art history books (from good old college days). Some would make great coffee table books! Here’s how to contact me for a book:

1) Email me (  with the subject line:  “RE: Book Inquiry”
Include Your name + shipping address
The name of the book you want

2) I’ll email you with the total cost with shipping included.

3) I’ll respond and let you know if its still available and give you the total with shipping. If you’re interested, you can pay me via paypal and I will send you an email when the book has been sent.
