posts about old books

my dad used to get the FREE books left at the "take it or leave it" section of the dump. he has come across many many gems. Some are worth money, others are history and great for the home library, den, etc.

Back in the day, that is where knowledge and education came from(partially). once they are destroyed you can't get them back.

I know if I came across an old book I wouldn't throw it away. Many books one wouldn't even think for a second are worth money are worth very much. One totally random example would be the 1st edition alcoholics anonymous bigbook...it isn't all that old, it isn't a famous novel, but the demand is there.
