Due to family and other excursions, need to jettison some stuff and no longer have space for these old programming/computer books (Win311/Win9x/Win2k/VB/OpenGL/C#/AutoCAD ARX). Haven't got the heart to throw them out so they are free to anyone who wants them.

In Sedgemoor/Somerset (South-West UK) if you want to pick them up or I can drive a few miles locally to drop them off. PM me if interested.

Unfortunately they will go to that big library in the sky in about a weeks time. Can't really spend too much time with this anymore so they will have to go as a lot. If you want to send them to that big library in the sky... so be it... I just don't want the blood of dead trees on my hands 😉

Shame over seas postage for weighty items is so much. That, and being raped by customs charges... otherwise I would happily send them to you 😀

In our local supermarket, they set up some kind of "trade library" some time ago which is free to use for everybody.
You bring your books you've finished reading and trade them against something else. No supervisor/clerk necessary - it's just a big book shelf at the entrance. And this system works quite well. Since most of the books are novels, recipes or books for children, I recently added some IT related (retro) books to the shelf. I was hoping to reach a completely new audience far off ebay & classified ads...
The next time I stopped by, all of my former books seemed to have found a new home, since they were all gone.

Maybe you have a similar option at your end, as it would be a real shame to dispose the books altogether.
