Friendly, self-evident amendment to the notion that one should never sell books to
Don't sell them if you want to make money, but do sell them if money's not your
object and you want your books to reach someone who might need them.
I sell my linguistics books and foreign language books to Half-Price just so they will
find a good home with somebody trolling the place.

That advice is correct! I overheard them talking to a seller once. They pay 10% of what they expect to sell it for. That means you would expect to get 5% of cover price for a brand new book, since they will sell at 50%.
