For months now Nik and I have been talking about taking a bunch of books to Halfprice Books. Yesterday we finally did it. We easily filled up 8 boxes and brought them in. The books were an eclectic mix, though only one was full of RPGs. That one had about 40 books, mostly old and crappy d20 books I never needed to look at again. We got a few hundred bucks for the lot, which wasn’t great but the more important thing is that 8 boxes of books left my house. Now other books can graduate from piles in inconvenient places to actual shelving. This is progress.
I know Nik was worried that I’d just replace those books with different books while we were there. I did have a chance to browse Halfprice Books while we waited for them to assess our lot. They had tons of 3.X D&D; books, so it looks like the dumping has begun. I only brought home 3 things though, and this was part of my project to reacquire game stuff I used to have but don’t anymore for some reason. These are things I loaned out and forgot about it, left in a dark corner of my parent’s basement, or just lost in one of my many moves. Yesterday I was able to get unpunched copy of the original Squad Leader game, a punched but in good shape copy of PanzerBlitz, and the original Unearthed Arcana for AD&D.; That cost me $50 of the money I had just made selling books I didn’t want anyway. Score.
