More books for sale

4_Tawa_St_sm_010

What a job – we are getting rid of half of our books – still taking 100 boxes of books to Tasmania

Heaps of books for sale as we get ready for the container arriving here on Monday 20th.

We are beginning to take the earlier advertised books to the Red Cross for their Huge Red Cross Book Fair in May – so I no longer have book lists 1 – 12 (actually I have some which I will be giving away at the Wanganui, Hamilton, Tauranga and Taupo Conferences)

Please click on this link if you would like to see what is for Sale: http://hef.org.nz/resources/books-secondhand/. We are now up to Book list 62 and most of the boxes are banana boxes of books. The book lists from 13-40 are now half price (50 cents with the occasional book at $2.50.)

I am travelling around New Zealand in May so I can deliver your books to a mutually agreeable place from Auckland down to Invercargill: http://hef.org.nz/2015/possible-conferences-in-april-and-may/

Lots of second hand books for sale

I have lots of books for sale. I need to reduce our books by at least a half.  These are books we have collected over 36+ years. Some books ex Red Cross Book Fair (some resued from recyling) and ex library books. I am sorry that the books are in no particular order. These are just as we come across the ones we feel we can sell and can’t take to Tasmania. My 14 year old is typing up all the lists for me.

Last day updated 04/03/15

Every day there are fresh book lists being added here.

As books sell they are being taken off the lists,  so all books listed are still available. Heaps of books have sold so far – heaps to still sell

Mostly books are $1.00. Smallest order that I will post will be $5.00 plus postage. You can join lists together. Please state which list book comes from

Click on the links below:

If you see a ? by the title of a book it means it is in the process of being sold.

Our movements

Last week I signed a contract for the property in Tasmania. My daughter is buying some of the land off me.

Downes Jr proposed housespot and shared drivewaysRed lines my new property,

dark blue lines Josh & Charmagne’s old and new property

light blue lines Josh’s parents and his brother’s property.

The lady in Tasmania wants the last date for settlement to be May 1. In order to get the funds across to her I need to settle here April 21. I have been talking with moving companies and they need to survey here 6 weeks before that. Which is like in a couple of weeks. So this is my timeline at this stage:

4_Tawa_St_sm_13

I now have a signed contract on this property. Trusting for it to go unconditional this coming Friday DV.

25 – February go room by room to see what we want to keep, sell, junk, give away. Books I have sorted that are for sale so far: http://hef.org.nz/resources/books-secondhand/. I hope to add to these lists each day and try to keep them updated regularly.

February We are expecting to get the next Report back from MoE (not sure what will be involved in these next steps yet – will publish them asap)

Once our home goes unconditional then I need to bring home from storage a large amount of stuff to again sort on what to keep, sell, give away and toss

3 – 10 March Movers want to look at what I want to take and give quotes (Anyone know of any good moving companies?)

20 April Kaity leaves Wellington Airport for Hobart

20 April Container arrives and is filled

21 April Settlement on our home 4 Tawa Street

20/21 April cleaning 4 Tawa Street

22 April – 30 April (3 of us needing a place to stay) End of year accounts (GST report, letter and receipt to givers and Charities Commission)

1 May Settlement on 23 Cordwell Road, Tasmania

 

1 – 23 May Available for workshops/conferences in North and South Islands. Let me know if your area would like me to visit. Would be travelling with Grace (9).

23 May last performance for Jedediah’s play at the Globe Theatre

25 or 26 leave Wellington for Hobart.
