Best place to sell books to in Canberra?

Watson 14 November 2012 38

I’m decluttering.

I have a few boxes of books that I want to get rid off.

Can anyone recommend a 2ndhand bookstore that I can sell them to?

Obviously I’m not expecting to get lots for them, but anything is better than nothing atm.

Bro, I have read all the walking dead comics, and played a bunch of timesplittrs, left 4 dead AND cod zombies and also all the resident evil games and also a bunch of other zombie stuff. Think I’m sorted!

All that time spent reading comics and playing video games… you’re cardio will be terrible. I’ll be looking for people like you so that I can be the fastest and strongest in the herd of survivors and let the zombies pick off all the slow and weak ones.

I train…WHILE I SLEEP!

You plan on sleeping during the zombie apocalypse?

Much to learn you still have.

I already told you all I learned about zombos!

Have you heard of the baby grenade?

Haha survivalists are not know for their knowledge about anything, or even their own common sense.

You’ll be taking those words back when the zombies come.

That should be sufficient for a family to last forever. Upgrade to some iPads and you have your entire music collection as well as a library!

Please tell me you meant 100 kindles, or only 1k and not that kindles cost 1.1 thousand dollars each.

Oops lol. Clearly I meant cost around 1.1k.

Have you considered the rubbish bin like normal people? Why does everyone have to make a buck no matter what?

“Normal people” pass on books when they’re finished with them. Whether that’s for free or selling them. It’s not about making a buck. Why on earth would you throw perfectly good books in the bin?!

Sometimes I burn

Paper books are for chuds.

Get a kindle.

Sure, kindles are great now but soon they will be useless. When the zombie apocolypse happens and there is no longer electricity then all you will have is one lousy kindle, I will have a nice thick hardback to read… and bash zombie heads with.

But back on topic there is also beyondQ books in curtin.

Take a look at this solar charger I prepared earlier for the exact scenario you mentioned.
You are going to be lugging around a single inefficient book while will own a entire library!

Of course, if you are really preparing for the apocalypse, paper is where its at. Digital is great for now, but what will you do when your kindle crashes and electricity dies.

That’s why all the survivalist forums recommend hoarding information in paper form (preferably in a non-humid store room)

I was in Canty’s on Wednesday with some books to sell. Being before the big summer holidays clean up, they aren’t buying heaps. However if you have some things that sell well or are good find, they usually tend to buy something. You may be able to get a bit of money for some of them before donating.

My problem is that I always end up coming out with more books than I took in. Such a good bookshop…

Sorry to burst your bubble, but any “purchases” from Amazon for a Kindle are rentals, nothng more. Amazon can wipe your entire collection if they so choose, and have done so on a number of occasions to an number of people.

Furthermore, the OP was asking for info on where to get rid of existing paper books, so you’ve added nothing of value to this thread.

embrace technology, dont fear it.

Why on earth do you care so much about how people like their books? Shares in Kindle?

Got ham I wish I did!

I’m just trying to educate.

Anyone over Kingston way might want to think about Reader’s Rendezvous. Usually the lady goes through your boxes, offers you a reasonable price for those that might re-sell and offers to donate anything of little worth to the local Salvos (or similar).
