Well, my existing bookshelf wont be housing those. In fact, that up there is their storage until they are read. Then what though? I only have the one shelf in my room which is already nearly filled to capacity. Up until now the books I have kept are ones that are important to me. Childhood favorites, high school year books, birding books, my photo albums from old school printed photo days are in there, & books by authors who I know personally (some of those are signed). Up until now since my reading rate has been pretty slow, I’ve not been too concerned with book disposal. Mostly the few I read end up at Goodwill.
But now I am faced with an already growing pile of books read in 2010 and at this rate I will have all those up there in that pile at some point. So I am looking for other ideas. Has anyone tried selling their books through the many sites? I’ve bought a few used book through Amazon & Barnes & Noble and been quite pleased with that. The books even with shipping are usually under $10 and in fine enough shape for reading. How hard is it to setup a seller account with one of those or something similar? Is Goodwill still the best donation option? They are easy since there is a drop off center that I pass every day on the way in to work. I give them all our clothing so it’s easy to just keep a pile for books. Or do any of you readers want to take dibs on some? I already did that once with a book and it was easy as pie and cheap to mail it out.
What do you guys do?
