Didn’t know if I should post this under the ‘Books’ forum.
Sorting through my bookshelves, a whole shelf is devoted to eight big, heavy Books Of Knowledge, circa 1950’s, plus an even bigger and heavier dictionary.
Since retiring, I have de-cluttered a lot of stuff, but balk at the idea of disposing these monstrosities. They were used as reference books by my sister and me, and a bit by my own children, but obviously not required by anyone nowadays.
Charity shops don’t want them, neither do car boots. I know I should just bin (re-cycle) them, but I get a vision of my dear old dad buying them, with hard earned money, off a door-to-door salesman back in the day, lured by the sales pitch that his offspring would end up on University Challenge probably, with the help of these books.
What would you do with them?
