Gift books to share: First edition
From time to time we receive gifts of books, and increasingly many of those titles are duplicates of ones already in the collection here in the Diocesan Resource Center. We simply don't have room to add most duplicate copies, nor room to add the variety of titles that, in an ideal world, we'd like to include. I'm pleased to be able to offer some of these titles to you, for your congregation's library or for yourself. This is the first edition of such offering, but I anticipate that it will become a regular feature of this blog. All of the books listed below are in good shape, and except for the title by Ghezzi, all are paperback. Please let me know if you would like one or some (email@example.com). These will be available until mid-August.
