One of the projects at my dad's house is going through his books. A few I'll definitely want to keep, and pass on to my son, but many will find new homes.
One of my cousins is entering seminary this fall, and I've offered the Biblical reference tomes to him. The rest I'll decide on individually. Some will go to family members, and many will be donated to the local Friends of the Library. This volunteer organization runs a used bookstore a few hours each week, and one big annual book sale. All profit is spent on equipment and programs at our library.
If you've read The Blank Book, you know about the mysterious book Alice Williams ended up with after a trip to her annual Friends of the Library book sale.
I don't think my dad had any like that, but I'll be on the lookout just in case.
In case you're following the roofing job, today should mark its finish (weather permitting), and Monday is the destruction of the living room. Yee haw!
