    Trash Pickin' score!

    (Mods, if this should be in Neener, Neener, please move it)

    I went to where the library throws out its unwanted stuff. I scored a hard back sci fi book, a very old business english book and five volumes of J. Fenmore Cooper's work from the late 1800's, filled with illustrations. I know that doesnt sound like a big deal, but I am a collage artist. Most of anything published before 1923 is in the public domain and so I can use in my art. I belong to a Flickr group that shares public domain images so I can post them there.

    LOL OK not very exciting. To me its a massive score

    wow, that is an awesome find, I am surprised that the library would throw out something like that. Here, we have a second hand book store, that is run by the library, anything the library throws out, including the towns book donations to sale to get money for the library.

    My library has sales too at a central location. Every Friday, they set out the stuff that they think they cant sell for trash pickup Monday morning. I have gotten old hymnals, and cookbooks there too.

    That's a cool find, but I wonder if they would of been worth anything on Ebay?
