Would you like to purchase a chess players library at a fair price? have something to leaf through, new, every single time you have the chance? you can purchase it for your chess club, school, organization, or have/ add to your personal library.
You have enough here to make you at the least a +2300 rated player.
I am an FM from miami florida, we could arrange the shipping.
Asking price: $5 per book ~$1500
I admire your passion and the resulting collection. :) Why are you selling them btw,just curious?
Are you selling books separately?
Do you have a list of titles and authors?
I'm interested. Message me on here and maybe we can work it out . . .
How did you get everything to hang sideways?
a list like what borg said would be appreciated
I still don't know if he's selling books separately. Does any1 have any idea? Is he selling them all together only?
i am selling the whole collection. I pretty much decided i was going to spend the next 10 years studying something else (internet marketing) and so im deciding to part ways with my books. these are awesome, and theres something there for everyone. another reason why i am parting ways with them is that i might move into my own place soon and i might take the minimalist approach, avoid carrying too much.
if you notice, there are dvds at the top of the library, i can include these as well.
send me an email if your interested
for those asking for a list, i dont want to go through the hw of typing all the titles, otherwise i would just sell it on ebay. what i can do is take pictures of each stack in the library and post them. you could see the titles this way.
Oh well, I doubt any1 will buy 300 chess books at once, but alright. Good luck with your sell.
PS. Even tho I'm not gonna buy it, I'd like to see the titles. (the pictures you mentioned)
You beleive this could make one of us a 2300 player, how much time would that take?
another thing i might do is sell the books, the dvds and a dgt board for 3k. anyone interested in that? lol
I meannnnn potentially, ofcourse, and i can even make a list of the books you should read but that doesnt mean it will happen.
i think if you choose 300 chess books at random you would get the material to make you 2300 :)
chess is funny, you have to have a knack for this stuff, a lot of people can appreciate having their own library.
If you really want to sell them, you are going to have to do this. Unless you are willing to consider something like $50 for the whole lot.
Pictures might be worth a try but probably won't really save you any work, since they would become out of date as soon as you sell some books. Plus, your first photo was pretty blurry. You might have to get a better camera.
I think you should bite the bullet and set up a list. Name, author, condition, etc. It won't take that long.
Plus, it will help you get ready to sell them other places like ebay, which is probably your best bet unless this becomes one long thread with you posting updated lists every so often.
I'm tempted to buy them, but I'm not sure I want to fund someone's foray into internet marketing. :)
Go on selling them on ebay, then.
Nobody will care bying the full monty to end up with double copies of old books.
You've got a long way to go with your internet marketing skills, because this thread is sellin' bupkis.
