We drove friends and a few dozen books for a birthday celebration trip to Modesto, CA.
As we have done before, we offered the books for credit at Yesterday’s Books and were rewarded by several of them being taken in exchange for a $48 store voucher.
So each of us got to pick out a new book we wanted.
For our household the net gains were: twenty books gone from the house, welcomed birthday presents for our friends, fun for all and $15 remaining on our credit account.
And something new happened this time. Five of the books returned to us bore a note, “Try again.”
Yesterday’s Books knows it can sell them but has too many copies on hand just now. Ahhhhh yes. We’ll shoulder the warehousing. We’ll bring them back the next time we’re out Modesto way.
