Somehow, I managed to convince myself that I don't need to hold on to every terrible book I've read, just in case I might be tempted to buy it again. So I made up five large boxes of books and went over to Pegasus Books in Berkeley to sell them. I've sold books to bookstores before, and this was a primo selection, including a lot of good copies of standbys.
They bought half a box of them.
You'd think I'd be angry because of that, but they bought half a box of them for considerably more trade credit than I was expecting for all of them.
How odd. Well, we'll try taking the rest down to Book Buyers in Mountain View, which is where I usually sell books. A bit of a drive for book selling or buying, but more likely to lead to those books being out of the house and fresh, exciting new books being in the house.
