Passing The Pages

We have passed on 2 books so far, here is the 3rd. (I have purchased all e-books this month to read… so I don’t know when the next passing the pages will be :()

This month I am passing on Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life by Karen Maezen Miller. I talked about it in my simply books post last Sunday. It is an excellent book for living in the present and embracing it.

Now I am done and I want to pass it on (cause I live in a tiny apartment and have a very small bookshelf :))

My friend (super-great-person and an amazing writer) Jessy gave this book away a few months ago to a friend of hers, who passed it on to me, and now it is headed to someone else. This books got a history!

Here’s the idea:

I will mail the book to whoever wants it. You just have to want it (comment that you want it) first and I will mail it to you.

Sound fun? Want to join in?

Not everyone wants to give away good books, but if you are ‘hanging’ here ’cause you are minimalist or flirting with the idea, this is an awesome opportunity to pass the pages or ‘un-buy the book’.

  1. If you got a book that you loved and want to pass on you can put it in the comment section or create a ‘pass the pages’ post on your site and link to it in the comments of this post. If you put a book you want to pass on in my comment section and someone else comments that they want it I will send both of you an e-mail with both your e-mail addresses. If you do it on your site it is up to you to connect people.
  2. If you want a book that is noted in the comments, just be the first one to comment 🙂

Mailing book rate in the US comes out at less than $5 with a priority envelope (and even less with book rate). I am willing to mail in the US for the book I am giving away:)

(Out of country or between countries is more expensive so if you want to specify what country you are in or where you are willing to mail that is great. There are readers from South America, Europe and Australia that frequent this site (so my analytics tell me). Feel free to participate and we can try and match you with someone from your spot on the globe)

So, is there anyone out there in the US who wants Hand Wash Cold? Comment first and I will send it too you.

Have a book to give away (and ship), note it below.


  1. I’d love to read this book. Thanks for the chance to check it out. You can e-mail me for my mailing address. I’ll check out my book shelf and find a book I want to pass along. Great idea.
