Book Adoption  

Monday, May 28, 2007

I have a lot of books. But really, until today I had not just a lot of books I loved, but also a lot of books that I didn't want. A few of them were fiction, but the vast majority were metaphysical books back from the days when I believed in all that stuff.

I boxed them up this morning and took them to Half Price Books to sell. I felt vaguely guilty about selling the metaphysical books, so before I left I wrote little notes in them about the subject matter. Yes, it's a little obnoxious, but they are used books. Part of the fun of buying used books is finding something that lets you know about the person who used to own them. At least I think so anyway. And well, the bookstore didn't seem to mind.

I made $27.00 from my book sale, which wasn't a lot really, but much better than nothing, since otherwise I would have just thrown them away. And throwing away a book, even a bad book, just seems like a bad thing to do.

I saved a few extra copies of fiction books that I do love (or haven't had a chance to read yet) to set free via Book
