      Great choices. I’m not on PayPal and will need to think about how to manage postage. I’ll be back in touch. Thanks.

    Ooohhhhh I’m very very interested in this, I have to say! I do spend enough time in the US that I could probably arrange to have books shipped to a hotel. Perhaps could you email me at amy.mckie[at]gmail.com and let me know what shipping might be (or where you are shipping from, if possible?). I’m going to have to look into the various titles and pick the ones that seem the most exciting!!

      Did you get a reply from me? I thought I had replied, but seem to have lost it.

      Very glad to give you books. Maybe some black women’s ones not on the list.

      My address is Alpine, Texas, 79830. 200 miles east of El Paso
