Making some good progress today. Taking a break to have some food and ride the bike while Reaper is on, then back to work.

I think I may have hit on a cue: if I have to think about whether or not to keep it or get rid of it, it goes out.

There's some stuff that's getting tossed that's probably better for the scavengers, and it won't be taken with the trash. Camping stuff mostly at this point.

There will be books. I'm thinking of making a run to Half Price Books to unload some of the stuff I'm not reading anymore, but I have a lot of sci-fi & fantasy paperbacks that I think may be of interest to the gang here, and I'll probably do a pre-run sale of those. Probably make-an-offer for those of you interested.

As much as I love the books, I haven't read them for a long time, and I don't see that I'll be reading them in the near future. A few I'm going to keep, but most will be going.

Pictures will follow at some point.

books were the hardest thing for me to declutter but once I did I didn't really miss them at all.

If you are unloading sci-fi/fantasy you might want to try Uncle Edgar's first, then Half-Price. Half-Price gave me ridiculously low quotes for my books - some more ridiculous than others.

Um...I know this doesn't help but I might find some of the camping stuff useful for festival. In fairness I will find a place for it in my rooms if you prefer.

It's out in the alley if you want to look. At least it was earlier. There's more to go, but I'm hoisting it out tonight.

Also tell me when/if you do a book run or a goodwill run. I have plenty of stuff for both.

That's all TBD at this point. Probably not until next week.

Lots of engineering & math, some in psychology, sociology, human sexuality, art. I'd have to go back and look at the specifics.

psychology, sociology, art would be useful

Books for Africa might take the engineering and math. I don't know how advanced they go with their books, but if they have an appropriate distribution channel, they could really help someone.
