I have a paper ARC of the last Temeraire book, League of Dragons, that I don't need (the nice people at Tor.com sent it to me, but then they got me access to an eARC, so I don't need both). This comes out in about six weeks.

Want it? Post a comment WITH YOUR U.S. MAILING ADDRESS and EMAIL ADDRESS (all comments are screened) in the next twenty-four hours and I'll mail it out tomorrow to someone selected by random number generator. (U.S. only to be safe, because it says that rights have been sold many places and I don't want to get anyone in trouble.)

Don't resell, don't be a jerk, only comment if you actually want to read. Thanks!
I realize they're mildly obsolete, but they're also free, so just in case: I have two (edit:) 9" portable DVD players that the kids no longer use. They've got straps on the back so you can mount them on the back of car headrests, and power adapters for cars & walls (no batteries). (Edit: oops, I only have one car power adapter between the two of them, somehow, but it's a standard type. Full specs.) Carrying cases included!

I'll ship free within the US. Comment by, oh, Thursday 8 a.m. EST, and in the unlikely event that more than two people want one, I'll draw random numbers.
I've just reset SteelyKid's old Nook HD+ tablet. You may have heard me bitch about it, so I can't say it's been a good device, but it does run apps from the Google Play store; does anyone want it? I'll ship it wherever.

(If I get multiple requests by, oh, Tuesday night, I'll ask the RNG.)
I have two Moto G phones, one bought in the UK (locked to Vodafone UK, but you can get unlock codes on eBay for trivial amounts of money) and one bought in the US on Verizon (which is apparently unlockable for free?). I want to give them away for free!

. . . of course, they're both broken. But they're broken in easily-fixable ways!

Specifically, they both need new screen/digitizers. I broke the glass on the US not once but twice, leading to this. And I tried transplanting the screen/digitizer on the UK one but I broke the cable running from the digitizer to the motherboard because I'm clumsy.

The US one still works even though the glass is a disaster, and the UK one was fine until I went messing with it. Both have been factory reset.

You can get the screen/digitizer unit for about forty bucks. Of course, the whole phone was $80 on Verizon here in the US, which is why I didn't bother to replace the US one, but if you're on a tight budget or you want parts for a science experiment or whatever, one or both of them are yours; I'll ship anywhere.
I have finished a stitching project! And now I need something to do with it.

It is a pattern of interlocking knotwork in four variegated autumn-ish colors (tan, pink, red, and green). It's designed to be a bookmark, and I could finish it that way by stitching around the edges with thread the same color as the fabric and, optionally, leaving a fringe around some/all of the sides (an example is behind the cut). However, it might be a little big for a bookmark, as the stitched area is about 2" x 8". (I would not put a backing on it, as that would make it quite thick, so finishing it as a bookmark means the back side of the stitches will be visible. They are very tidy, but I'm happy to take a picture to prove it.) It could also be framed, in which case I would leave it as-is.

I will ship anywhere in the world, free. If you're moved to donate to Con or Bust in thanks, that would be great, but it is 100% optional. In the unlikely event that more than one person has asked for it by the end of the week, I will pick a random number. So if you like it, don't be shy! I would like it to find a home with someone who appreciates it. (I'm not keeping it because I don't need a bookmark or something to hang on a wall.)

A picture: )

(I have just written a bunch of stitching neep and then changed my mind and saved it to a file; probably I'll post to [livejournal.com profile] cross_stitch once I have pictures of its definite final state and post a link here.)

ETA: family has spoken up, sorry non-family folks.

Giving away: the first three volumes of the "Ultimate Editions" of Fruits Basket, oversized hardcovers each containing two of the original volumes. I will ship media mail within the U.S.; if you are moved to make a donation to [livejournal.com profile] con_or_bust, that would be lovely, but it's not required; these are just spares that I'd like to send to a good home. (Tokyopop seems to have resumed issuing these editions, with two more scheduled for this year, so you'll be able to get at least a few more if you like your sets to match.)

If there's more than one request in the next 24 hours, I'll pick at random.
