    Good day, everyone!

    The school I work at recently gave me a stack of books, some of which I already own. I figured if someone else could use them, it would be best for me to sell them.

    Most of these books are fairly new. Some are a bit banged up and scratched from transportation and improper storage, but are otherwise in good condition. Here's a list to get started:

    Electronics-related (textbooks)

    Computer Simulated Experiments for Electric Circuits Using Electronics Workbench Multisim
    by Richard H. Berube

    Introductory Circuit Analysis
    by Boylestad

    Problem Solving and Program Design in C
    by Jeri R. Hanly and Elliot B. Koffman


    Somewhat electronics-related

    TI-89 Graphing Calculator for Dummies
    by C.C. Edwards

    TI-89 Titanium Owner's Manual


    Other books

    As I Lay Dying
    by William Faulkner

    Moby Dick
    by Herman Melville

    White Noise
    by Don DeLillo

    Essentials of Psychology, 5th ed.
    by Douglas A. Bernstein


    I'm hoping to do this in the form of an auction, meaning each book goes to the person with the best offer. Depending on the book, I may be willing to pay shipping myself (in other words, free shipping to the buyer). If you're interested in any of the above titles, please let me know and I'll be sure to get back to you as soon as possible!

    Thanks for reading, everyone!

    Best wishes and kind regards,
    Matt L.

    P.S. I may also be willing to trade for electronic components/devices. Feel free to make an offer!

    Hi Matt-

    My 14yo granddaughter picked up a TI-89 for $1.50 at our local Goodwill store but there was no documentation with it.
    Anyhow, how much for your TI-89 book?

    Hiya Joe, thanks for the reply.

    Are you asking about the owner's manual or the TI-89 For Dummies (no offense intended, of course :p)?

    $1.50 for an '89 is an excellent deal! Those things are still worth over a hundred! ;)

    Best wishes to you Mate, and have a happy 2013!

    Regards,
    Matt

    I make a lot of HAM/Electronics sales, they are going for $10 used nowdays, I have one I have no clue how to use. I might get one of the books, if it falls through, international shipping is a pain.

    Yeah, I looked that up yesterday to give myself a baseline. The book is pretty much brand new--I've never used it, and I don't think anyone else has either. For you guys, I'd say $10 would take it. I'll have to check shipping costs though, and the price can be adjusted from there.

    Well feel free to give me a holler anytime. I'll see what I can do.

    Best wishes,
    Matt

    Oops, sorry. I was referring to the TI-89 calculators. See Post #2:

    It depends on your location. Are you in the U.S.?

    Thanks for the suggestion Joe. Apparently it requires a credit/debit card to create an account, which isn't something I do. I only use my debit card for personal purchases. I don't give it out online.

    Any other thoughts? I'll probably end up doing mostly private sales.

    Much appreciated!
    Regards,
    Matt
