Used Books for Sale

A couple of weeks ago I tweeted about purging my collection of books.  It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now, and since I’m an apartment dweller where space is always at a premium, it seemed long overdue.

It was fun going through them.  Something I’ve always done is use the book receipt as a marker, and I found some receipts dating back to 2001.  I also never realized just how many Stephen King books I own.  In the end, I came up with two full boxes of books, encompassing literary journals, mass market and trade paperbacks, and hardcovers.  These are books I’ve read and have no intention of reading again, duplicates I somehow acquired over the years, or books I simply could not finish and never will.  Some are classics, most are guilty pleasures, and I’m sure there’s a little something here for everyone.

Now here’s an experiment.  I’m having a book sale.  Mass-market paperbacks (the small, pulpy books you find in grocery stores) and literary journals are $1.  Trade paperbacks are $3, and hardcovers are $5.  These books are being sold as-is.  Some are yellowing from age, some have slight water damage, and some have creases in the pages or covers (a lot of these were acquired second-hand).  Prices are negotiable.  All US orders are shipped priority flat rate, and is $4.90 extra. If you want your books faster/insured, or if you’re ordering from outside the US,  please email me for a quote.  If you’re curious about the publishing data or a particular edition, feel free to inquire.
