  • School books?

    I have my degree in nutrition and still have all my text books. I am wondering what I should do with them? Can I make any money anywhere on older editions or should I just give them to Goodwill? Also, would you keep the Anatomy & Physiology ones? I'm not sure at this point I'll end up with a career in nutrition and if I do I will have to back to school and will have to get new text books anyway, right? Any reason to keep them?

    I recycled all of mine that I could not sell. New editions are always being printed so if you are not selling them in a timely manner they are usually obsolete, at least in my experience.

    What am I doing? Depends on the day.

      You could try selling them on eBay or if your school does not do buy-back.

        Keep them for reference. I still have my engineering texts for that reason. Get rid of them and you'll wish you had kept them.

          I'd at least keep the A&P one...but I tend to hoard books, so I'd keep all of them...
          It's just another day in paradise
          As you stumble to your bed
          You'd give anything to silence
          Those voices ringing in your head
          You thought you could find happiness
          Just over that green hill
          You thought you would be satisfied
          But you never will-
          Learn to be still

            I have all of my old college textbooks. I kept them because the University got newer editions rendering them obsolete. I think I will probably still read them one day.

            For now. I put all of them in a cheap back pack I got from Walmart. I put the backpack on (now 25 pounds) and do pull ups, pushups, dips, squats. Makes for a great workout.
