Tree Dreaming

(no subject)

I've kept all of my textbooks from my high school since 7th grade. Why? For the sole purpose of selling them all back at booksales the year after I graduate and making hordes of money. I've just spent the past half hour sorting through all these books with the booklist for next year. Well, about 30% of them are no longer being used (which I expected, so it's ok). And there are a few I couldn't find, and I few I had sold before, and one I wanted to keep (my visual basic programming book). I priced them at VERY reasonable prices for what my school charges, and for the fact that they are indeed used, especially some of the ones from recent years when I didn't give a crap what condition my books were in. (many a $58 book was marked down to $30.) With all these factors in mind, I think we should all pause and reflect on how much money I'll make should I resell all the books I priced:


Kind of makes you proud to go to a private school in America, doesn't it?
