Half Price Books
Our little house is just getting too little, and we need to free up a little extra space.
As much as I HATE it, I realized I was going to HAVE to let some of my books go. I never get rid of books, except fiction paperbacks, which I am only too happy to pass down to another reader!
After digging through bookcases and bookcases, I found some old books I had purchased and some I had been given back in my lifetime before children, when I worked in home sales. These books hadn’t been opened in years, and I don’t know why I was holding onto them……
Although we are at our local Half Price Books enough to know most of the staff, I have NEVER sold a book there! I called up and asked them how it works, and if there are any pointers. I was told to bring in the books, and they would have an offer for me within 30 minutes, unless they were extremely busy or I was bringing in ALOT of books. The offer would be for the stack as a whole, not for each individual book, so I should let them know if there was a certain book or books I wanted priced individually.
We left the books to be reviewed, and looked around the store a bit.
I found all these terrific camping cookbooks! Unlike my self help and sales books, I can definitely find space at home for more camping cookbooks! Hey, there is a fine line between “collecting” and hoarding!
Cha-ching! I was happy to accept their offer, making about $1 a book, which is what I would probably make if I sold them at a garage sale. The best part, no garage sale!
