1000+ cookbooks

Okay, 2012 is the year I'm downsizing. I have over 1000 cookbooks. Since most DCers are in the US, I would be more than happy to send cookbooks I don't want to DCers rather than donate to the local Goodwill by US mail (a donation to your local food bank or animal shelter for the postage would be appreciated). If you are interested in being sent a list of the cookbooks I don't want to keep or are duplicates, PM me (but give me a few days to figure out how to empty my mailbox). Once you receive the list, I will need a mailing address.

Canadians are welcome to let me know as well, but I'm not sending them US Post!

You also may think of contacting your local public library if you want to donate. Most around here hold a big used book sale every year, or have a used books for purchase shelf. These are bonanzas for those of us who couldn't possibly afford to buy all of our books new. About 85% of the books I read are library check-outs, 14% bought from their sale or used book shelves (I think $1 for paperbacks, $2 for hard), then occaisionally I pick up a new one.

I would prefer to share them directly, but those that I don't want/aren't claimed will go to a local charity.

I have tons of cookbooks and those that aren't willed to family/friends are willed to my local library.

I would like to see your list as well, unless you're overwhelmed with responses then don't worry about it.
