As I posted a few weeks ago my grandfather past. He had a side book business selling old books mainly about history and the military. We are trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his books.

A few years ago when he was alive he got "raped" by an auction company. He rented a booth in an antique mall for years where he sold books. When he could no longer drive up there he put the book up for auction. He had maybe 250 - 500 books plus 1-2 tables and 8-10 book shelves.

It sold for $10 at the auction!

My brother in law and I could have sold the books worth $5-10 on amazon and ebay and got him a few $100.

He may have 500 books left and we are trying to think what to do with them. Any suggestions?
