The next step: Tackle the bookshelves

God, I have so many books. I have soooo many books it's not even funny. Three crammed full bookshelves. So many books that I haven't read or that I ended up just reading an e-book version of them. Last night I pulled about 30 books off of my shelves and listed them on Amazon.com Some of them, such as my sociology texts, are work beaucoup bucks! Because I'm a "Just Launched" seller on Amazon, I've got my books at the lowest price. I'm also including tracking, free of charge, for books that cost more than $5.00.


I woke up this morning to check my email and I had already sold two of my paperbacks! I've got them packed up and I'll ship them out at lunch time. It's nice to be getting some money back from the clutter in my room.


Yes, I'm considering books clutter because I have so many of them. I have some books that I wouldn't think of selling. Those aren't clutter. The random old textbooks and paper back novels which have hardly been touched? Those are clutter. It's incredibly satisfying to see my stuff disappear. I know that sounds bizarre, but it just is!

Later this week, I'm going to tackle the bookshelves downstairs. Those are mostly paperbacks, but I think there are a couple more high ticket texts to be found.
