Moving Sale: Secular Books
« on: April 22, 2015, 04:39:30 PM »
Hey everyone, my aunt and I will eventually be moving now that it's just the two of us, so I need to SERIOUSLY cull before that happens. I'll be listing secular books, religious books, and DVDs over the next few weeks before they go on ebay. At this point, I'm just looking at trying not to have to move all of this stuff to a smaller room in a smaller house.
