I sent out PayPal invoices to everyone that requested books - except for Alex.  I don't have your email address.

I will ship as soon as your payment comes in, but hurry up - I am going on vacation on the 22nd and won't be back for a couple weeks.

Thanks guys!

I found out that shipping to international addresses is somewhat expensive.  I can send about 3-4 books in a medium box to Europe/Asia for $63.00 USD.  A larger box (if the books won't fit in the smaller one) is $75.00 to $85.00 USD.

USA addresses can go "book rate" which is really cheap in comparison.

Canada is about $40.00 for the medium flat rate box.  I am not sure about the larger box.

The final cost is up to the US Post Office, so these are only guidelines.

Never mind.  I see your reply in my message queue.  Weird forum software!

Kevin, I've sent you a private message.

Hey Boris - where did you go?  I sent you a PM with the total shipping weight of the books.  I need to know what country you are in to calculate shipping costs.

If you ever change your mind and allow us to mail  you checks, please let me know.  I don't have a paypal account.

I don't think you need a PayPal account.  I would just send you an invoice via email, with a URL link back to PayPal.  PayPal takes all sorts of payment methods, including credit cards and checks. 

I am taking Martin's books to the post office today to get final word on shipping cost.

My OS/2 tech library is looking for a good home.  This is the library I used back in the day to develop E-Racer/2, PrjBld and KeyRing/2.  Any or all of it is available for free - you pay the shipping/packing.  Martin Iturbide has dibs on some of these, if he can afford the shipping.  You can duke it out with him, if there are conflicts :-)

Here are some photos of the book spines and some closeups of the software manuals:

Most of the books are in pristine condition, but are only promised "as-is".   I can probably dig up the CDROMs and floppies (if any) that came with the books, but no guarantees.  A lot of years have passed and I may not have retained them.

I may or may not still have the install disks for the software manuals shown.  If I do, you are welcome to them for the same price (free+shipping) - at the very least, you'd get a manual for your existing software.

The books are physically located in Olympia, Washington, USA. (not too far from Seattle).

Contact me with a list of the ones you want, and I will weigh them for potential shipment.  Many of the books are 2"-3" (5-6 cm) thick and are pretty heavy.  You are responsible for import duty, if any.  Paypal only.  First come, first serve.
