About a month or so ago, I packed up the books and tapes that had been on my dining room table for the previous year or so and which I no longer wanted. I stopped into the used bookstore a couple of blocks from here and asked if he'd be interested - he told me to come back in January.

So I just got back from schlepping the first two bags of books over. The guy took a quick look through them, threw most of them back into the bags and gave me $5 for about eight books, claiming that the rest weren't in good enough condition for him to bother or were too old.

First of all, I've bought books there that were in worse condition than anything I have. Second, "too old"? WTF does that mean? He doesn't like SF from the 60s? I was tempted to say, "Screw it - I'm not giving you any of them."

I've just emailed Casey House (an AIDS hospice here in Toronto) to ask them if they want the rest, and offered them the tapes as well. If they don't want them, I'm sure Goodwill will take them. (I'd take the books to Bakka, but that's a long trip with several bags of books.)

Now I'm off to track down a copy of Doctor Who S4 - the Future Shop up the street didn't have any copies, but they said that the store at Yonge and Dundas had some. (I picked up BSG 4.0, SGA S4 and Torchwood S2 while I was in there. :) )
