Amara ~~ I also think that you're willingness to give away books is awesome!! Most people would hoard them, even if they knew they'd never read them again, or they'd try to sell them and make a little profit.
What a great treasure you're providing for others who love books as much as you do. You are basically giving away joy, excitement, journeys, and sheer unadulterated pleasure ~~ and that's quite a gift!
It's possible that you misinterpreted this particular person's intentions and attitude. (It's also possible that we did. You've met him after all. We have not.) But even if you did, that doesn't make you any less amazing for what you're doing for others.
