I’m presently reading a number of books about slavery, slave trade and human trafficking. From the past to the present days. I really would like to make a small book spiral (the “BM8 Slavery book spiral”) with those books. I’ve got the following books, but a few more might be added (edit December 7, 2009: I've got several more books - some are small/light, others are hardcover; some are about historical facts others are about present-day slavery):

I'd be very interested in this, but I know it's not the sort of thing I want to read quickly or one right after the other. I would like to ship within Europe, but if possible, I'd need a couple of months between each book. So maybe if I were towards the end that would happen automatically?? Anyway, I think it's a great idea for a spiral. Two more suggestions - (both of which I've read and/or own and would not need to receive in a spiral - Incidents in the life of a Slave by Harriet Jacobs, and fiction but nonetheless very interesting: Kindred, by Octavia Butler.

 

but i would like to know the weight of the books, are they paperback ect,
dont mean to be fussy its just the postage costs.

Weight
Until now there is only one hardcover, weighing just under 600 grams. The others are under 500 gramms; two of those books have lots of illustrations and not too much text, are therefore easily and quickly read.

 

i live in liverpool- a city which had a lot to do with the slave trade and i have a strong professional background in the maritime history of the city here. I've never been involved in a spiral before so am not exactly sure what the rules are. is it just a ring with more than one book being in circulation at once? I am uk based at the moment but can post international if required. Thanks

Who else?

 

I'd love to join if possible! I live in South Africa and I can ship internationally (if the books are heavy it would have to be surface mail, but otherwise airmail should be okay).
