I sold a portion of my book collection today. Several thin volumes and thick volumes as well. Books whose stories were not particularly memorable. I got P2,300 for them. Not bad.

Gigi (the buyer), wanted to buy my Judith McNaught, Jude Deveraux and Linda Lael Miller collection. I initially said that I'll think about it. Actually, I was partially sold already. However, when I was trying to pack them this morning, I can't seem to part with them--even if I haven't read most of them for quite some time. I began collecting them when I was in High School and it's like parting with my childhood friends. I can't just give them away like that (even if I'm being paid for them).

Anyway, she was quite understanding and asked me to give her a call once I decide to sell them.

I remember I used to read books from your collection. I got hooked and started reading those authors from where I am though I use more of the audio books. I listen to it while driving to and from school - total of 100 mi.
