In the end, out of 8 boxes of books (another 24 to go) - 6 are rejected. Of the 2 they took, comprising 4 heaps of thin, more contemporary books, perhaps 70 books all told, $35.00 paid.

But I need to change the way I look at it, revise my thinking, I have the books inside, and it's - while a write off in every economic sense - it's still a lot easier to carry around $35.00 and buy the next book than it is carry around 8 boxes in the possibility I may one day want to reread one.
