Resa's Wish List!
Starving Artist! With books and art materials!
The following are things that would make my life so much more bright and shiny.
Used Books - I Love Used Books!
Whenever I have a little spare cash, I frequent garage sales, thrift stores and ebay for used books to read. On occasion, I specifically look for hard back books of certain series in good condition -- I have a thing for dust jackets.
Other times, I just want a paperback copy to read. And here's what I'm currently looking for:
- The following hard backs in Cherryh's Foreigner Series: Pretender
- Hardbacks of any of Patricia Briggs' Mercedes or Werewolf series. Whoo -- these are fun!
- Paperbacks or hard backs of Cherryh's Chanur series. I have one paperback in harsh condition. :*(
- Paperback sequel to Dog Days by John Levitt
- Paper or Hardbacks of any
Fiction/Fantasy/Horror fiction that's not so dark.
And what I mean by this is that some writers leave you with the feeling
that humanity is just a big sewer. None of the characters are
decent. Not a one. And, honestly, life is
depressing enough without reading stuff that makes it more so.
For an example of what kind of writing I do like? Dean Koontz. He's dark, really dark at times -- but the good guys win. I'm such a sucker for that.
Any Gluten Free Cookbook
Condition -- I don't care. 'Long as I can reads it. Learning to cook gluten free has been a challenge.
Anything off my DICK BLICK LIST is good. Even used. So if you have a handfull of prismacolor pencils you bought and don't care for? I promise to give them a very good home.
Other than that ...
$2 donated to my paypal account will pay for a coffee at my local coffee shop. Which I promise to use the cash for just that, thank you!
