I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

Books from Spoon's library, cheap

[ #18354 ]
In a recent entry in her LJ journal, Spoon's girlfriend Katrina said she was trying to find a good home for her books. (And books aside, her journal is a sometimes heartbreaking tale of going on with life after her beloved Iain's death.) I wrote her to find out more. She said:

Here's the list of Iain's books for you to have a look at, and if you know anyone who would be interested in any of them do feel free to pass it on. I'd be happy just to get the price of postage for them (which unfortunately would probably be considerable, given the size and weight of the books). I should have done this sooner, given that I'm moving in 2 1/2 weeks and can't really take them with me. I'd love it if some of them could go to a good home.

So here's the list. Please do NOT contact me on these. Contact Katrina directly at
