        As of last Tuesday, I officially became a used book dealer, 
specifically for used technical books.  Yes, there is a fairly good 
market out there, but you have to know what does and does not sell.
Older texts from the 30's to the 60's are great for technical con-
tent, but some of the newer ($90+) texts are worthless.  I use the
net proceeds to purchase books for my library.

        If anyone has books that they simply feels aren't worth
keeping, I would certainly like to know about them.
