Bulk Books at Wesley

The first story starts at Wesley College – Elsternwick campus. They were having an Open Day a few years ago and to encourage more people to come and see what they do they had a few stalls. I was helping out on the Raffle stall, there were plenty of food stalls, a few rides, the teachers were doing a concert, a cake stall and the most important of all was the book stall. I got to it early and picked up a few bundles of ABC delicious and a number of great titles. Near the end I offered to buy whatever was left when I returned. They were quite quick to accept. I can’t think why!

When I got back we packed them up and I discovered there were 17 boxes. I was very excited, my first bulk book buy!! When I was looking through them I found all sorts of treasures. I had 3 boxes of computer books. I managed to actually sell some of them and the rest were taken by a happy freecycler. I had a box of new books I knew nothing about and lots of miscellaneous other books. Several boxes were Encyclopaedia Brittanica, but I think that should be a post of it’s own.

I had a wonderful time sorting through all the books and listing them on eBay and an even better time storing them. My youngest left that campus three years ago and I still have some of these books. I’m going to be sorting through all my stock and these books will be among those to be sold at a garage sale and if not sold to be sent to an op shop. I think I’ve held onto them long enough.
