Free book - But pass it on!!

Postby doubleforwards » Wed Sep 05, 2012 3:53 pm

A few months ago I asked for any ideas on what to read and a certain Gent sent me a copy of Caught Inside by Daniel Duane. This is now up for grabs to the first person to reply on here and send me their address by PM.

All I ask is that you do the same, re-post on here and send it off to the next in line. Keep it moving.

It would be great if people wrote their names and locations on the inside and whn the covers are full it makes its way back to me so I can see where its been.

First reply and its gone!!

do read 'breathe' by tim winton. It;s a sort of coming of age type novel but surf based. It's corking

2nd that, 'Breathe' is a really good read and not your bog standard surf book. Well worth diggin out.

I've got a copy of Breathe out 'on loan' with a buddy at the mo...

Once he fetches it back I'll pass it on

It could be seen as another carriage to the good karma book train...
Those who read and pass on are the PASSengers!

I've just finished reading Chasing Dean by Tom Anderson, desperate to get back in the water now... I'm a big fan of Toms books, it was rising the magic carpet that planted the seed that I'd like to try surfing'

I'm happy to pop it in the mail if someone wants a read, same deal as above, read it and pass it on.

I'd like Chasing Dean please.

In exchange I think I have a copy of Surfing's Greatest Misadventures on the bookshelf (need to check though, it may have been boxed away). Either back to you SST, or if you choose to pass, first one to show an interest. Reply on here first and then PM.

I've just started reading Saltwater Buddha and loving it. Zentastic so far, and thought provoking with enough surfing to keep me in check.

And no you can't have it...
