You should probably put them on half.com or amazon.com, unless you are intending to give them out for free here... :mrgreen:

Why do people try to sell off books once they think their use is over?! Better question is why do they think their use is over?! Won't they be useful to you in any way in near future?! Puzzles me!

Not everyone can afford to haul every book they've ever bought around with them, especially when moving cross country for grad school. The availability of electronic books makes this even more appealing. And then sometimes, you just don't want the books anymore. He's practically giving them away so take advantage!

If you're really only selling them for $5 a piece and they're in good condition I would buy them.

I love that book very very much apart from Arfken. But I didn't know she is no more. What a shame. This month happens to be her first death anniversary.
My deep respect to her. May God bless her.
