The great simplification begins

Since my high paying job is ending, we will soon either be moving to a new town or to a smaller house (with lower mortgage payments) in this town. This is an excellent opportunity to disencumber myself of a few of the eighteen hundred books I own. I will probably never read many of them, and since they are all very good books, someone should read them.

So I'm selling through Amazon. Here are the first two items I'm putting up for sale

Fighting the Forces: What's at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Eds. Rhonda Wilcox and David Lavery. This is a great book that I happen to have two copies of. Right now I have the cheapest price at $18.

Moral Passages: Toward a Collectivist Moral Theory. Kathryn Addelson Some feminist moral theory for you. I'm asking $2. Someone else is asking 59 cents. It is not worth my time to walk to the post office for 59 cents.

I hope to unload at least 200 books this way. We'll see.

Update: Hey, I just made a sale! I unburdened myself of a copy of Cahn and Markie's Ethics reader for $34, of which I get $30.20.

I'm sorry your high-paying job is ending.

It's always sad to get rid of books :(

(not an original bone in my body these days - the corporate life is sucking all originality out of me.)
