Too Many BOOKS????

Is it even POSSIBLE to have too many books?

I don't think so ....however, due to "life" and the downward spiral of the society in which I live... I need to make room in my home for family.  And family is a bit more important than books.

I have thousands.  So I'm going to thin the herd.  In the next couple of weeks I'll be starting a new "blog" page to list the ones I've decided to part with.  I truly want them to find good homes.  Many of these are from the discard piles of libraries and various sales.  Some are in great condition and some in well worn condition.

I have no clue as to even how to go about setting up this thing so it may just flop.  I'm thinking paypal will be the best way to go.  That seems to be the way most of these things are set up.

So what kinds of books?  Well, I've many on gardening and plants.  I've some books on tape.  I've fiction.  And a bunch of cookbooks and craft/how to do books.  And some religious books.

I will be keeping some....

If this goes fairly well, I may sell my baseball/football cards, comic's, star trek stuff...etc.

Now for the MOST important part since this is the deciding factor for me and most: COST.

I'm not sure but I'm thinking:  $1/paperback; or $1/2paperback PLUS shipping costs.  Hard covers; $2/per or $3 for 2 .... something along those lines.  I don't know, I may have to price each one separate but I'm mostly wanting these books to find "forever homes" (lol).

I welcome any thoughts or ideas. :)

the gov healthcare website

Yes that failure of a website.  They've spent over 600,000 DOLLARS on that thing.... and it failed.

They could have given every citizen of the USA TWO MILLION BUCKS and 1) we would be ahead of things and 2) we could have paid CASH for any health problems we ever would have needed.

and the best one 3) that would have jump started our economy BIG time.  Cause the majority of us, yep myself included, would NOT have saved that money but went out and spent it!

heck even if they had given us each 1 million bucks, it would have been win win!  lol!

I would have paid off my student loans and did some major things to my home that I've been wanting to do to improve it.  AND still had $$$ left over.

What would YOU have done?
