I’m engaged in a never-ending battle against the accumulation of print materials. You might have guessed that this was a problem, given that we’re a household of librarians who also have a small cat that likes to bite paper. Sonya tipped me off last week to a great option for my no longer needed books – Powell’s! Instead of having to sort through my books, load up a laundry basket, drive around to the myriad used bookstores, and get pennies on the dollar – you can enter in your ISBNs, review their offer, and then ship the books (postage paid) off to Oregon for their resale pleasure. The only downside to this arrangement is that you get store credit instead of cash dollars – but really, that’s fine by me.
