Obscure Slovak and Czech books seek good home

I have been ruthless of late in getting rid of things, especially books, but there are some books that took such trouble to obtain during my fieldwork that I cannot easily part with them unless I know that nobody else wants them.  As a result, I will post here a list of book titles (and pictures of the book spines, if that helps) and see if anybody out there wants them.  Please feel free to forward this to anybody who might care.  And because I want these books to find a good home, I will even pay the postage in the US or Canada and if you want me to send it across an ocean we can probably figure something out.

    Here’s the list.  Pictures below.

    1. to fakt? sak su tam skvosty! len na prvy pohlad Mowimi po polsku a Capka by som hned zobral :)

    2. Ahoj! I’m interested in learning Czech, but am barely a beginner. Does the offer still stand for your books? Most of these would be too much for me, but the Colloquial Czech and Czech for English-Speaking Students would be a big help. I would also love the Hrabal (seems like it would be easy enough to compare the original and the translation). I hope to hear from you soon. Na shledanou.
