I am willing to write you a check for any weight of books up to 10 lbs (media mail only).
The amount of the check will be double the media mail rate rounded up to the nearest dollar.

I'm interested in the following topics, and similar topics:

literature: classic, modern, poetry
business: investing, management, systems, crm, information, dashboards, finance
computers: programming, operating systems, networking, data modeling, databases, information
art: photography, painting, graphic design, installations, illustration
data visualization
self improvement
philosophy
math
reference books
academic textbooks
science fiction
magazines

not interested:
"dummies" series
romance novels

To make an agreement:

email me (projectdp at gmail) with:
1. a few topics and titles
2. your name & address to send a check to!
3. the weight of your books

actually i don't think this deal is sweet enough. it requires the giveaway person to do work to get rid of the stuff just to have their costs covered.

new deal: everything is the same except i'll pay double the shipping and round up to the nearest dollar.

more topics to include: academic textbooks, magazines

I have to mail something to my little brother, but the post office keeps odd hours... so I might just do that this weekend. I figure I can fill a box up with a couple books then as well.

I won't charge you as that's a hassle.

I'm sure the vast majority of people would never actually ask him to compensate them for their postage. ;)

dannyp, it occurs to me there is no point in shipping you books.

you live practically next door to me. just come pick them up at your leisure.

Also check out the awesome used book store in downtown mountain view.
