I am moving within the year so thought it best to clean out my bookshelves. I have a LOT of inherited books - very old books. Is this the place to share them?
For instance I have The walton Boys, Haardy Boys, Horatio Alger -- very old, The Eldon Readers plus much more. Old Theology books.... Not sure what to do with them :)

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Would you be willing to list what you have, and any deals you would be willing to offer?

I love old books, and could be interested in some, depending on what they are.

What are your old theology books?  Any old classics?  Any old bibles?

You might want to check Amazon or Ebay to see if they are worth something, especailly to a collector first.

I am also interested in these books. Many are old friends of mine that I would like to pass on to my children. But a previous poster is probably right! They probably are collectors books now and valuable. Please let me know if you are willing to send them my way. But I certainly would understand should you choose to sell them. Dolly

ooooh, old books are awesome!  But, I agree with the others that you might want to check if some are worth a bunch.  But, please let us know if you decide to put them here!

Hi  Kathleen Marie

I just wanted to drop you a  note and tell you I would also try Amazon.com with your old books first, but if your moving and don't have any account with Amazon it might not be worth it too set one up.  I guess would depend on how long you staying in Deadwood.  I live in Wyoming actually Newcastle Wyoming which is only about an hour away so we are neighbors.  If you need more info about Amazon just let me know I know all about it.


Take care

Shelly
