The big problems in choosing book club a course in miracles is that a group with many members will have very wide literary tastes and a wide range of personalities. Also, many of the members might be very well read which means that it may be hard to select books that they have not already read.
Some book clubs get around this problem by focusing on one very specific genre or theme and choosing only books that fit these criteria. However, the majority of book clubs are general clubs and therefore are faced with choosing the most appropriate titles from the millions of books that are available.
One way to begin to whittle down the selection is to eliminate all books that are of the wrong length. Book clubs that meet regularly should not choose overly long books as the demands of reading them between meetings may be too much for members with busy lives.
Another good idea is to not choose new release books that are only available in hardback. Waiting for a paperback edition means that the book will be cheaper for members to buy and they are less likely to be annoyed at the cost if they don’t like the book chosen.
The choice of book should also be geared towards the interests of members. If members prefer titles that are more populist the selections should reflect this. Similarly, if the members are more interested in literary fiction these types of books should be chosen.
Although the books should be chosen to reflect the tastes of the readers it is also a good idea to choose books that will not be universally liked. In order to create a lively discussion it is better that there are a variety of opinions on a book so that lively debate can be created. Not only does this make the club more interesting it will also introduce members to types of books that they have not read before.
Sell old books that are in good condition. You should not sell books that are very old, extremely marked up and have torn, stained and missing pages. Make sure to sell books that have clean appearance, no missing or torn pages, minimal or no markings, and with covers that are in good condition. However, there will always be exceptions – books that are collector’s editions, rare, or first editions.
3. After organizing your used books to be sold, note down their ISBN numbers, which can be seen on the back cover or inside the book (on the first page). It is best to create a text document of all your books’ ISBN numbers so that it will be a lot easier for you when checking prices at various book buying websites.
Once you have a record of your books to sell, it is now time to go online and choose the website where you can sell your old books. You have two options – go for websites that will let you sell to a buyer directly – just list your book, wait for someone to purchase it, and then deliver it to the buyer. Another way is to sell a large number of books to a single buyer. Although the price for each book is a bit lower in these websites, you can get a lump sum. Also, you do not need to go to the Post Office several times.
