Textbook question

As I attempt to make my house a home, I have one question.

What do I do with all the textbooks from college I don't want? Between the 2 of us, we have at least 15 large books, and honestly we don't want or need them.

I wish I had been as smart as one of my nursing school friends who sold them on ebay as soon as we graduated! Amber, why was I not as smart as you? They have seriously been in boxes for nearly 4 years!

For the most part, my nursing textbooks are all out of date, so selling them on ebay won't really work. I would really like to take them somewhere and give them away, but I don't know where.

Any advice friends?

Donate them to the library, thats what I did because I didn't sell them fast enough.

Or post them on craigslist...you never know the books people want to buy.

There is Bookmans...local used book store.

I also have boxes of heavy books just taking up space that I wish I had sold when I was done with them.

Its worth a try to list them online though (my preffered site is Amazon)... I'm currently in a Finance class and know some people in there bought an old edition to save money

Yeah, I sold some old editions too on Amazon or Half.com.
Since PHSSN gave us those CDs of our books, I didn't see much sense in keeping the books.
