I have a once-read copy of Alex Honnold's book "Alone on the wall".

One week auction and I will post to the best offer (in my sole and final judgement).

"Best offer" might mean, for example:
- a donation to charity
- cash
- belaying (=climbing with; I'm not that mean) me at a Buckinghamshire wall
- a book swap
- a funny joke, or endearing heaert-warmign story about why your library needs this
- nude photos of your llama
- a promise to roll back Trump or Brexit by lethal force
- a miracle cure for my cancer
- a solemn undertaking to do some act of random kindness or senseless beauty

You get the idea.

I'd like to say what a great book it is... but I found myself disliking the author more and more as I read. Perhaps that's the curse of all semi-auto biographies.

C'mon. Swap shop. What am I bid?

I'm doing a snow dance tonight in the hope of bringing a blanket of white to the lakes just in time for the weekend.

I don't want your book (I have a copy already, given to me as a gift by someone brilliant) and I will be doing the snow dance regardless.

I hope you get some good bids.

Hmm. Your llama is less attractive than I had imiagined it might be. However, it's best so far.

Other offers?

How did you find the book? I have this and got a chapter in. I wasn't exactly enthralled enough to read the second chapter to be honest. Shall i persevere?

Or perhaps give it away in a similar game?

I was underwhelmed, as said in my OP. That said, don't flood the market!

A strange siamese cat that seems to be allergic to itself and is fond of puking on the landing right outside the bedroom door.
P&P may be problematic but i'll do my very best.

Gosh. You clearly hold Honnold's writing in high regard.

Maybe I need to lower my sights a little.

For this not-even-slightly-foxed copy of Mr honnold's seminal work, posted to you, I am merely seeking the best of:
- a Christmes card to the local care home
- a set of used Post-It (c) notes
- a 35mm film canister of marmite stashed somewhere in the Dollies
- an hour's litter-picking on a footpath near you
- or similar.

No (more) used tissues please or VHS videos of your kids school productions.
