Are these books worth anything?

    23 years out and I'm still purging this trash.

    I still have 1 box of JW stuff left.

    Buy a shredder. Old paper makes good addition to the garden.

    I wouldn't trash it -- at one time (moons ago on H20?) someone indicated a collection of WT garbage (books) went for thousands - seriously! I find it hard to believe but you might have it listed on eBay or check out first.

    I wouldn`t mind "The Kingdom Interlinear of The Christian Greek Scriptures" or even "Life Everlasting In freedom Of The Sons Of God "

    Just saying

    Literature is like a bedbug infestation. You think you have rid yourself of them, but then you find another box!

    well, in these 80's ou 90's, there was still something to read... Today, the doctrine is just "trust the governing body, obey and be blessed". and watch stupid videos...

    Some of the really old stuff ( Russell / Rutherfords time ) goes for good money to collectors. When I was congregation secretary we had a lot of old books in the congregation library and I decided to have a clear out and sell them and we got about £300 for congregation funds. Looking at your selection there though , I don't see anything that would fetch anything that would cover the postage costs.

    After I left I had a lot of old bound volumes and made a bonfire of them. It felt quite good to purge them on a psychological cathartic level.

    Looks like most of that stuff is from the 70s & 80s.

    Books with any collector value at all are from the 30s & earlier.

    What you have there is pretty much worthless, in more ways than one.

    Not worth anything, but I am curious what the book beneath the blue Creation and old songbook is.
