    Death Notices Imminent for some signed/limited edition books

    Is there a database where I should report their demise? About a week ago I hurriedly dropped off 4 boxes of books at a friend's place and planned on going back, in again, about a week, to properly store them. She had me leave them on a floor in the spare bedroom. So, a mutual friend calls me...
