    I love books, and I think it is sooo cool that you get so much joy out of the library finds. My dad works at his small town's recycling center, and I get a lot of books from him. I can not believe the books I get. One was an old (1936, I think) Webster dictionary...one of the big ones with "all the words" LOL. I treasure it.
    We had us, we had him, now we have everything.

    No, the Cooper books weren't a complete set so they aren't worth anything. The business English book isn't good for anything either, just going to cut that up and sell in my collage packs

    I hate seeing books being thrown away. I enjoy picking some up at garage sales, but I know they are hard to sell unless they are collectible. Out downtown library has books for sale outside of their little gift shop, very cheap. I picked up several hardback copies of the Dune series, but I need to find out what order I should read them. I prefer physical books when I read at home.
    Be Happy Now.

    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

    Not sure if this qualifes as ''trash picking'' or not.....

    Our neighborhood had a yard sale the past 3 days, and several families left remaining items in their driveway with a ''free'' sign on them. This morning I drove by and saw an entertainment center! It's black, about 18'' tall, 5 feet wide, modern looking, with 3 sliding drawers in the front! It has a small water bubble spot on the top, but it's hardly noticeable.

    yeah for me!

    SCORE!!!! If you did not find a new home for it the chances are it would have ended up in the trash.

    Yeah, I'm sure the rest of the stuff will be left out for the trash. It will probably sit there until Tuesday. (Trash day). I hate seeing stuff like that thrown away! Take it to Goodwill, the Mission, or some other charity! I'm sure someone can use it.

    And places like that will usually pick up the leftovers and give you a receipt for taxes. Hate to see good stuff go to waste.
