What do you do with unwanted books?

  • Sell them
  • Give them away
  • Use them as fuel
  • Use them as door-stops
  • something else

    There is no such thing as unwanted books!

      Would you like to come over and collect some of mine, then?

        As soon as I have set up all these shelves I have planned...



      Well... maybe "unloved" would make your wisdom fit my view more precisely... because sometimes, "unwanted" overcomes "loved" for lack of an endowment to expand my shelf space... and a lack of eager recipients for old CP/M or RT11 docs. : - )

    • Return them to the owner(s) I borrowed them from.
    • Burn another audio-book on the CD/RW
    • Stock them in the attic for sentimental/nostalgic value (e.g. a book about the architecture of the MC6802 chip might be considered "unwanted" in the current era, but is *was* where I started assembler and having fun writing disassemblers)

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

      Stock them in the attic

      uh-oh, that for a firestarter :-(
