There are a number of books left (one woman kept going through muttering "I have this.....I have this one.......").  It was recommended that I post the list of remains to the list before taking it to a secondhand bookshop or otherwise disposing of them.

So, if you want something on this list, let me know.  This lists ONLY the SCA-relevant books (plus one that is a standard utility item and some not-period but useful knitting books).  I can try to get them to you at convenient meetings, or at Artisan.

Someone asked me to hold the historical cookbooks until she gets back to me later this week; if she doesn't take them, there will be an additional or updated list.
