I had a hard time getting rid of college textbooks, after all, they cost over $100 per subject so I thought I had to hang on to them. I moved them several times until I finally got rid of them. I found a student who was majoring in my major (psychology) and gave him all my books. He has told me on several different occassions how much he has enjoyed having them as reference books. He intends to pass them along to others when he graduates.
