Purge 2012

Is still ongoing, but slower.

I'm puttering around the office. I brought home from 3 weeks of school a large canvas bag of books. And a glockenspiel. And a couple of candles. But anyway...

I have NO room to put any of these books away anywhere. My to read shelf is already full. Time to clean out some books.

I pulled some out that could immediately be just given away, I've pulled others that need to be sold. The books, although not exceedingly valuable, are in demand as used books, and hey, I could use the money. I found out that there's a Waldorf Book I own two copies of that is out of print and is in demand on Amazon and the starting prices on the book are currently over $140.00. I definitely want to sell that one, but I'll probably want to just sell it for a little more than what I got for it. Also found out that one of the kids comic books is going used for over $100...may try to convince child to try and sell it so he can buy more comic books.

Anyway. I want a book truck to do this properly, but I don't have one, so I can't. My plan is to start pulling out a shelf at a time and weeding it.

Man I have a LOT of books. I wish a good Anthroposophical library was closer then I wouldn't need to buy so many.

I also have a shelf double stacked of Kid Vid DVDs. Definitely need to go through that shelf and sell off what we don't watch anymore or frankly don't want my kids watching anymore.

In all, its going.

Is Book Buyers an option? Not going to give you a super rate on books, but they do Take All, where they buy what they can use, add what the physical store can't use to the online store, and then recycle the remains. For me, since we're moving and time is of the essence, I've taken that route.

I usually just take books I'm not going to sell to the Goodwill Truck.

Most of the books I want to sell, I'd like to see a better rate on return than selling to another bookstore (although Powell's is an option...a hassle, but an option)

Thanks for the pointer to the store though! I've never heard of them

can I call dibs on Waldorf books before you sell them off? I'll give you a fair price, certainly.

There's only the one...most of the other books are wanted by mainstream homeschoolers
