Just another reason why I love the internet

    After lugging these things around for over twenty years now, I just got rid of about six hundred pounds of industrial manuals. Thanks to the internet they are no longer needed. I also realized that for the first time in my life, I can start to reduce the amount of shelf space dedicated to books and magazines.

    Praise the Lord and God bless the internet!!!:tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    You can also use the internet to sell your old books you don't need anymore.

    To someone savvy enough to buy books online, but not savvy enough to realize the manuals can accessed on-line? :rofl:

    Well that's possible but I was thinking more along the lines of people who prefer to have the book instead of reading online and those who like to collect books. Not to sure just how collectible Ivan's manuals are though.

    :confused: They didn't used to be available online, which was the whole point.

    He was referring to your potential buyers. You can sell nearly anything on eBay. It's worth a try, just make sure you require the buyer to pay shipping! :rofl:
