I sold two books from my library today

There’s this service called metabook that facilitates selling books that you no longer need / want and buying them from the seller. I had two in excellent condition collecting dust for many years:

  • UNIX Network Programming: Interprocess communications
  • UNIX Network Programming: The sockets networking API

I had purchased them for sentimental reasons. I’d read the first edition from the lab next to mine and at some point in time I got them. It is always nice to have a complete library.

The warm feeling I used to have by just looking at them was gone though. But I could see the spark in the eyes of their new owner. He too said he got them for sentimental reasons.
