A few weeks ago my dad had a startled revelation. Everyone has heard of people making money from selling on Amazon and Ebay, well my dad thought this would be a good idea, so I typed in details of his books on to Amazon and to his disgust there were many copies of these science books starting at 1p! In fact every single book had a starting value of 1p and there were many copies. Talk about not being worth the paper they are printed on.So it would actually cost more for packaging and seller fees. A lot of books have ended up in my garage : ( such a reluctant dutiful daughter.
We are considering just sending these books to a paper recycling firm which would hopefully pay us.I hear they usually pay by the tonne....I am sure we would have a tonne.
Even if we did get rid of these books the problems lies in my dad continuing to go for his ritual of visiting Sunday carboot sales to find "bargains".
It is a deep psychological addiction for finding bargains and become over attached to them to the point of being selfish and reducing the quality of ones own life and relationship that creates difficulties in hinders us of being a happy family. And that is priceless.
