FREE BOOKS

Anyone want these books for free? Preference given to people in the Toronto area, then elsewhere in Canada, due to postage costs.

Jared Diamond - Guns, Germs and Steel - trade paperback. Civilizations developed the way they did due to their environment.
Jared Diamond - Collapse. Hardcover. Civilizations collapsed because they did not respond well to changes in their environment.
