Valuation of a stock of books in distress

Unread Messageby gegyx » 29/06/20, 14:07

Hello
It bothers me a little to present to you my current, urgent problem.
I have a book stock coming from my mom who had buying madness…
This goes in an encyclopedia of 10 volumes of dictionaries, atlas collection… in abundance of France Loisirs books, police pocket books, espionage, and many, many pink novels and harlequin books…
The encyclopedias, the libraries did not want any more, the secondhand trades, do not have any more and the second-hand dealers, not, because that takes too much space, and that does not leave… (however volumes bought 1000 with 2000F…).
What to do with it?
I have storage problems now after 3 years ... and I'm really stuck. Otherwise bought a hangar to postpone it again ... And let the children swing very soon ...

It always makes me "sweat" to put this at the recycling center, and also at emmaus, because the policy of the leaders, I don't appreciate it very much.
What to do with it? All this work, sorting and storage, now useless, without any compensation, from my mom's tribute, leaves me with a bitter taste…
I always come back to think that burning them would at least allow me to pay for fuel, for heating.
Small emotional and pecuniary compensation.

I know it was not moral for culture, nor ecological. But what is really green? If we use another energy, or a very random recycling ...

Obviously, making a stove to heat a shed in the winter would be very useful.
What do you think, if you understand my feelings of utility and profitability?

Libraries and old people's homes, they don't want them anymore ...

Your association is for profit, and do not take "club books". In short it is not for the culture of populations, it is to make an income ...

I sympathize ... I threw it full!

I got the same answers as you, that is ... no answer.
The books in German them, it is even worse, they do not want the “Gift of the book”

We must keep the elders who contain knowledge! Because one day he will be lost ...

This is a question that I also ask myself when I see my collection of San Antonio which is growing every month, from RTA stock from the 60s to 80s recovered in a garage ....

I'm not talking about the library of my old people that I moved in 2018 ... at least 600kg of books ...

F5 full to the ceiling ... With my little arms in 2 rented garages, another temporarily loaned and the house full ...

No doubt more than 6m3 of books, 4 of wool, 7 of clothes, 1,5 of sorted shoes, dishes, furniture ... and the string of pinards that I had to throw away ...
