Selling used books online is proving to be way too difficult, might just donate them instead

Slightly obsessed with old things I find in books, like this 60s/70s picture of a girl who took down a grizzly?
Tumblr media
It was in an old copy of "Das Mädchen von Treppi" (The young girl from Treppi) 1894
Tumblr media
Who was she? Where is she now? Why the heck was she hunting a grizzly? Is this Legal? So many questions

New books, again
I went to a book sale in our village. I was hoping to find a few books there. Maybe five, maybe less. I came back home with fourteen books and one CD. No regrets though. And it was for a good cause. I’m most happy with the English pockets. I was look for them at the book markets and in the second hand shops. Have you read any of those? Anything that caught your eye?

Hello! I was hoping u could provide me with some sites that sell either used books or books that are really cheap if u know any in india? If u are aware of any independent bookstores that i can contact would also be great
hi if I told you where I buy books then I'd have to tell you where I live and that's not good for me. but yeah ask around there are definitely second hand bookstores everywhere. if you live in states which have book fairs I've heard they sell cheap books but ofc abhi tjays not possible !! I don't buy books online unless I really need them, I have a plug for books, a sweet old uncle so I'm kinda sorted for a while <3 sorry couldn't be of any help if anybody has some suggestions please drop them in the notes thank u

Have you ever gotten sad from a second-hand book? Because I just have. I recently bought a big book of classic science fiction from a second-hand bookshop, opened the cover, and read “Daddy, Happy Christmas 1982, from Nora, Stuart and Sophie” written in pencil. 
 Who were these people who wrote this message nearly forty years ago? Are they still alive?  Did their dad enjoy the book? (the book is in mint condition, barely even read, so...)
 Thinking of that, who were the people who owned my other old books? I have a little entomology handbook from the 50′s and an Esperanto dictionary from the 30′s. Who owned them? Now I’m sad about people I’ve never met...

#Authors to earn royalties on secondhand books for first time
#Authors to earn royalties on secondhand books for first time
‘I don’t really know if people are reading my old books. I mean, how would I ever be aware?’ … the window of Henry Pordes secondhand book shop in central London. Photograph: Tolga Akmen/AFP/Getty Images AuthorSHARE, a royalty fund set up by two used booksellers with support from industry bodies, is calling for more retailers to participate… Unlike regular book sales or library borrowing,…

not me contemplating making a budget to see if I can buy a cricut to make the workflow of various projects easier and more feasible.
#I want to make a load of little stickers for my friends birthday and for my laptop#and to potentially sell#and I also want to start putting titles on all the books I bind#just to make it easier to pick them up when I'm in a rush#because currently I can't identify them easily#other than remembering which cloth I used for each one#There are a couple of other projects I want to work on too that it would help with#but we have legal fees that are still cropping up and after last month despite the fact that I'm now earning#I don't want to risk another short of cash month because I just don't have the energy for it if it happens again#on the other hand#I have got various jobs that mean I'd be able to afford on with the discount the local craft store have going in the next three weeks.#but I have to see whether it is justifiable#but then I was also thinking about finding a cheap second hand ipad to replace my crappy tablet for digital art#and there is no way in hell I can justify both#so it just depends on which one I can make money with more#and that's a really shitty way to look at life#I actually fucking hate capitalism and monetizing hobbies thing#can't I just make things that I think are cool and look pretty#also I actually just want to make things to give to other people and my friends without charging for them#because I love sending people gifts#no jokes sometimes I just send my best friend random packages with pins or a little painting or whatever#just because everyone likes the feeling of getting a package and I like giving people that feeling
