The Allison Bookstore

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 | Posted under Home Life

I’m a big fan of buying books, but I’m also a big fan of sharing the love and getting rid of books to make room for new ones. Now, I never throw them away (sacrilege!) but I do donate them as often I as I can. Over the weekend, we cleaned out our storage unit (in an attempt to pare down our expenses), and now we have a new influx of books that need a home. While many of the books we’re planning on keeping, it prompted me to take a look at my collection and see what I could do without.

Usually I’ll take a load to Goodwill, but I thought I might give my books a new home with some of you. I know most of you are avid readers too! Now, I’m not going to give these books away, but I’m selling them for a reasonable price of $5 per book, plus $2 for shipping!

The books are first come, first serve, and you can choose more than one. I’ll strike out the ones that are taken. Just email or leave a comment letting me know which ones you want, and I’ll be in touch to collect payment (via Paypal) and your mailing address. The store is open while supplies last!

Sound good?

Happy shopping!

(Update: I’ve lowered the prices! All books are now $5… For some books that is 75% off the cover price!)

              I LOVE THIS IDEA and am going to steal it from you next time I do a book clean-up… Darn, and I just did one! Why didn’t I think of this?! Seriously!
