Selling and Buying Books
Posted February 13, 2008on:
So I was just going through my books and realized that since I’m moving into a much smaller room, I need to get rid of some of them. A lot of them really. I refuse to get rid of my horse books (mainly Phantom Stallion and Heartland), along with any books that I’m reading now that are in series and I don’t have the rest of them or ones that I’m pretty sure I’ll read it again (Uglies, Principles of Love, Secrets of my Hollywood Life, etc). Aside from that, I’ve decided that any books I have but haven’t rid in a year or ones that I’ve read but I don’t feel the need to reread it, have to go. The thing is, I don’t want to just put them in a box for our yardsale because no one really looks at them and the library won’t take them because most aren’t hardcovers. So, my question is, what do you do with books you want to get rid of? I’d really like to get some money for them (not a lot, just some), so that I can buy more books but I’m not sure where/how. Any suggestions would be SO helpful.
Also, what about buying books? I obviously go to the book store once in a while but the only real bookstore is about an hour away so when I go, I usually spend over $100 which my dad doesn’t like. I have no problem with getting used books but I don’t want to spend the same amount for a used book as I would for a new book which is what a lot sites want.
Any suggestions for anything, would be awesome.
I’ve got some major things coming soon, that I’m pretty sure you guys will like.
