Selling books

Miss K convinced me to sell most of my books (they take up a lot of space). So we first tried selling them to a local book store, a bin (40ish books) for 20$ was the best rate we could get. Instead of selling locally we're trying half.com and so far it's working out pretty well. It averages two book sales a week.

I really didn't want to sell them because it's impossible to get your money back out of them. Each paperback is 8$ and hardback 15-30$ (at new prices). So ~300$ worth of books will resell for 20$ local or 50$ online... so sad! But honestly i don't reread them unless they are truly fantastic. Tunnel in the Sky, Pushing Ice, Seeker, Ringworld, stuff like that.
