Please join me for my very last Sunday in New York before I depart the city for good. We’ll have free books, drinks and good company, so I very much hope you can work us into your Sunday schedule.
I have nearly 200 books I am giving away, mainly brand new or only once read, including new finance and economics warhorses, classics on Japanese culture, novels, histories, and philosophy.
I am also long copies of ECONNED, and I hope some of you will snag copies to give it those reasonably likely to read it or to a local or university library.
There will be a very few other unused or barely used items (like virgin kitchen equipment well-meaning friends gave me, not understanding that I don’t have the patience to cook and lots of mazagran mugs).
I also hope someone will want to buy a 27″ 4th gen Apple monitor I have used for less than a half hour total.
I usually overdo as a host, but this will not be one of those times. I’ll get a few bottles each of a decent rose and a red. If you’d like beer, please bring it. Ditto a white or a sparkling wine (if we get a lot of interest in comments, I will get more bottles [Update, I relented and am getting a couple of whites…but if you have a wine you’d like to bring, we’ll open it only if we need to}. Or bring munchies. Be prepared to take home what the crowd hasn’t finished.
Sunday June 23, 4:00-7:00 PM
903 Park Avenue (northeast corner of Park and 79th)
The nearby subway stop are the number 6 (Lexington Ave local) at 77th and Lex or number 4 or 5 (express) at 86th and Lex. Or you can take the Madison Avenue or Lexington Avenue busses, or alternatively if you are coming from the West Side, the 79th or 86th Street crosstown bus.
If you think you might take more than a couple of books and have a car, parking is actually not bad on a Sunday in the mid-late afternoon. You should be able to get a space reasonably close by and could stash your haul in the lobby while you bring your car around to take it away.
Please feel free to come by regardless if that Sunday works for you. It would be lovely to see some of you before I blast off.
1 If you are interested in the monitor and would prefer to pick it up another time, so long as it is by 6/24 evening, that would be fine. Please e-mail me at yves-at-nakedcapitalism-dot-com with “Mac Monitor” in the headline. Regardless, you should let me know if you are interested and make what you consider to be a reasonable price, otherwise I will give it to a charity.
I also have nifty ceiling fixtures and if they don’t wind up at Doyle (I find out this week) they might be better in the hands of readers who are considering sprucing up their digs than as a tax deduction. This is a variant on the old saw, “MBA means May Be Available”
