We have 10 tall 5 shelf book cases int here. All full of books. Some double stacked. And we have to short book cases in our bedroom. My DD has a shelf of books in her bedroom and my boys have about 4 shelves of books in their bedroom. <br /><br />And I have moved all of these books 4 times in the past 3 1/2 years. And gotten rid of boxes full to paperback swap and by giving them away and selling at yard sales. What we have left are just the ones we love too much to get rid of!

You don&#39;t make any money using it, but you can get lots of great free books, plus you can order a free book after you&#39;ve posted 10 books for trading. All you ever pay is postage.Brittanyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05282267972362754604noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-45243045999843555892009-07-17T09:55:56.947-07:002009-07-17T09:55:56.947-07:00We&#39;ve sold a few on eBay, but you have to rese...We&#39;ve sold a few on eBay, but you have to research ahead of time to see if it&#39;s worth your time or not. If you go to the Advanced Search, you can select items whose auctions have ended. You can see what sold and how much it sold for. We also check to see how many of the same title are currently listed. If there are too many, there won&#39;t be a demand for our book. We do this just to save ourselves from having to deal with auctions that end for $.99!Jenniferhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05511703689947793049noreply@blogger.com
