Since I will be moving next month, I have to bid farewell to my collection of Japanese books. There is no Book Off here for me to sell to, and the Japanese book market is almost non-existent. So instead of recycling them, I decided to give them away.
How to join
Reply to this thread and say you would like to join. By the end of the event (1 Sept), I will randomly select lucky participants. Each one of you could select either 10 books of your choice or the kindle paperwhite (that I am also giving away). You only have to pay for shipping fees.
Just to note for anyone looking at the doc Yui linked, those numbers are Hong Kong dollars, so make sure you’re converting. I’m not sure what the weight would be for the books; would it be possible for you to weigh them and report back @Yui so people can estimate shipping costs a little easier?
Since most look like bunko editions, I estimate around 2 kg (maybe less) for 10 books. Not sure how much the kindle weighs… not sure if they would be considered documents, but even if not, the shipping seems quite affordable (if you are not in certain parts of Europe like me… cries in Austrian)
Thank you, I had no idea how to read that; I just tried googling “Honk Kong to US.”
Anyway, about 4-5 small books are normally 665g, so it looks like shipping in the US should be around 25-40, so…IM OPTING IN.
I know this isn’t what this thread is about, but thanks for mentioning this! I’ve been thinking of getting a new eReader soon, thinking about a Kindle (for JMDict and proper vertical display, something I never managed with my eReader)… but sounds like I’d be much happier with an Android eReader! (Others seem to be happy too.)
