Topic: New Tradition: "Coffee Library" (2 msgs / 68 lines)
1) From: HeatGunRoast
Tradition Library
I pulled 6 coffee books off my shelves.  All in good, clean condition.  They’ve all
contributed enormously to my coffee knowledge and enjoyment. It’s a shame to have
them just sit there when there may be folks on this list who’d like to read one or
more of them.
These are the books:
The Devil’s Cup: A History of the World According to Coffee.  Stewart Allan
Home Coffee Roasting: Romance & Revival.  Kenneth Davids
Espresso: Ultimate Coffee. Kenneth Davids
Coffee: A Guide to Buying, Brewing, and Enjoying.  Kenneth Davids
Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed the World.  Mark
   Pendergrast
Espresso Coffee: Professional Techniques. David Schomer
So here’s the deal:  I’d like the books to stay together as a collection (and I
don’t want to ship off half a dozen packages).  So the winner gets ALL 6 BOOKS. 
Doesn’t matter if you have read a couple or if there’s one or more you’re not
interested in reading.  (There is a bit of redundancy in the Davids books, but in my
case—didn’t hurt to read a few things twice!)  
Now, a suggestion: When you've read as much of them as you intend, maybe you will
repeat this tradition by making the "Coffee Library" available to someone else. 
Maybe even add to it.  You are under no obligation. Take whatever time you want with
the books (6 months, a year, 2 years ...).  Don’t worry if the dog eats a few or if
they wash away in a hurricane.  Not trying to set this up as a burden or “control”
anything after the books leave my hands. Just a suggestion.
For the drawing, send your name to

Read and enjoy.

Just checking in - - -
I neglected to mention a cut-off time for the drawing - - -
Given the enthusiastic response already, I'll close the tradition off at dinner time
tonight (pacific) and let the winner know.
