Should I sell my books?

Postby Scurredsitless1 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 8:51 pm

Are you selling you books after the semester?

Will I ever look at them again?

I'm not really that hard up for the cash, but if I'm never going to open them again, it would be nice to have the space....

Also, are you selling them to your bookstore or online?

Heck yes I'm selling them. I don't think you'll ever need them again.

I sold my Torts book on Half.com for $110.

I don't think I'll ever want it again. If I do want it for reasons of nostalgia (or a pretty bookshelf) five years from now, I can re-buy it for $15 online after 3 new editions have made it wildly obsolete.

I'm keepen mine - might like to keep them around to remind me what I went through to be a lawyer.

I know a couple practicing attorneys who have their original books shelved in their offices and it was pretty cool to look through them and see their notes from 40 years ago when they were students. Made an impression on me I suppose.

I plan on keeping mine until the summer, then selling them to next year's 1Ls.
