Renaissance freebies

Hey everyone, I've just changed my subjects around and am no longer doing Renaissance ( :()
I actually bought quite a few extra books for it though and out of the goodness of my heart  :angel: am wondering if anyone wanted anything?
here's a list of the bits and pieces I have collected:
- Gene Brucker: Renaissance Florence
- Robert Hole: Renaissance Italy
- Christopher Hibbert: Venice the biography of a city
 - Christopher Hibbert: The rise and fall of the house of Medici
- George Holmes: Renaissance
- a book on Botticelli
- a booklet of information on city-states photocopied from various sources given to me by my teacher
- a booklet of quite a few past SAC and exam essays as well as sample exam questions and answers I bought from the VCE resources centre 
if anyone wants anything then just let me know  :)

OMGOSH.
I think I'm in love with you! :)

I kinda want to say "I want everythings!" now. :P

But, in an effort not to be selfish, I would love to acquire both Hibbert's books (I'm currently reading the Medici one and it's a pain having to return and reborrow it every week at school!), as well as Brucker's Renaissance Florence.

Whereabouts do you go to school/live? I would love you meet up and take these books off your hands. :P

I'd love anything you can offer, but I live in the country, about two hours away from the city, so it's not exactly easy for me to pop in and take them off your hands xD

ohh yay, I actually get it :D. When would you like to meet up, ;D?



@Menang   I don't do Renaissance Italy, but I've always been very interested in it though, I've just watched documentaries and stuff on it, but never really had a book to read about it. Neither schools that I attend offered it. Medici is also an interesting family that I've always been enthusiastic about, mauahahah xD

About Philosophy

When I see a youth thus engaged,—the study appears to me to be in character, and becoming a man of liberal education, and him who neglects philosophy I regard as an inferior man, who will never aspire to anything great or noble. But if I see him continuing the study in later life, and not leaving off, I should like to beat him - Callicle

That sounds pretty good. :)
I could meet you at Flinders St at around 3:45 on most days. :) Earlier on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays thanks to frees and such.

Which do you prefer?

Edit: @Water, I didn't know you do Renaissance! :)

I usually get to Flinders around 7:20-7:40 in the morning (tiny gap, I know) and I can wait till around 8am on Mondays and Wednesdays.

I can do Thursdays! :D

I can be at Flinders around 1pm on Thursdays (may be a tad late, it's cutting a little close) but yeah, Thursday should work fine?

Edit: Wow, this in incredible. :P Robert Hole and Patricia Brown's books were on my booklist. I could have saved like $50. :P

menang I could probably meet you in front or around macrob somewhere on thursday before 1:00pm if it's cutting it too close- it wouldn't be a problem because I try to make myself run at Albert Park once a week (key word is try) so it wouldn't be a stretch at all?!

Awesome, see you on Thursday! :) Thanks so much, again. :D

Look for the asian girl in MacRob uniform. That doesn't really narrow it down, so I'll just look for you. :P
