Thursday January 19 Checklist
I don’t know about you but I own shelves and shelves of books. If I were to never go through them and get rid of some they would take over my house. So at least once a year I sort and decide which to keep and which have to go. And then I do a few things. (1) I check my titles on eBay. Sometimes I am surprised how much a particular title can get. If it’s decent, I’ll list it. I’ve even sold books that were highlighted and written in–once for more than I originally paid for it! Just be honest in your listings and be sure to charge shipping. I usually to the flat rate shipping bags, just for ease.
You can also re-sell textbooks to Amazon. I haven’t done it, but I see it out there.
(2) Sometimes I call the local indie bookstore and ask if they are interested in a trade. I bring books, she gives me store credit toward new books. Or new-used books. I am happy either way.
(3) Sometimes I donate books to my local library. They keep some but sell most at their book sales to support the library.
(4) other times I deposit the books in a local book dumpster. They donate the books to kids and folks who have little access.
What do you do with the books you no longer use?
