Books I haven’t been able to get my hands on

There are several books on the 1001 Books that I do not own and that are not available from my library. I plan to use any patronage on my Patreon to acquire them, but if you have access to any of these books, or would like to help me out in a more once off, direct way, you could use my Amazon wishlist to send them to me.

If, for whatever reason, you don’t want to use Amazon (maybe you have a copy of one of these you don’t need), below is a list of all the books I haven’t been able to locate. (Some are not on the Amazon wishlist above, because they’re not even available there.)

I will keep updating this as I work my way through the list. If you do send me a book, it would be very useful if you could let me know, so that I don’t end up with duplicates. I am also more than willing to negotiate a “borrow and return” (if you’re local – shipping to NZ is expensive) or a “read and donate to a library” agreement, if you wish.

If you can help, please get in touch, and we can make a plan. 🙂
