erynn: Gaelic merman image (all your books!)
I spent probably four hours off and on today dealing with the library. I probably sorted through about 90% of the books in the actual library room. I think about half of them ended up in the "to go" pile; there's a lot of stuff that I haven't looked at in years, and a good bit of that is genero-Pagan and Wiccan stuff that I really have no particular use for. There is a small but appreciable number of signed books in the "to go" stack. [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor and I will be checking around on amazon and abebooks to see what reasonable values are for some of these things, then probably put them in an accessible database online for folks to peruse to see if they want to buy them.

Local Pagani will probably get first shot at the Pagan/spiritual/myth stuff that I am getting rid of. Given that I'm trying not just to cut down on the amount of stuff I have to pack, store, and/or ship, but to get money toward my moving expenses, I'm going to avoid doing the yard/garage sale thing on as much of it as possible.

We had to get a tire ordered for Garuda, as he got a flat yesterday. The tire should be at the garage tomorrow afternoon. I talked to the mechanic about best way to sell him, and he said craigslist and that the engine was in immaculate shape, so I should get a good price for it. I looked and saw cars like Garuda at dealers and on craigslist asking between $3500 and $6000. The mechanic said he could print out all the maintenance records and I could offer those with the car, which is also very useful to folks and will enhance the value. I figure I will ask for the upper end figure and if they try to talk me down some, I will still be getting considerably more than I had initially thought when I do sell him. I'll want to have him washed and vacuumed out before I show him to anyone, as he'll probably impress a little more.

I think the only maintenance records I won't have are the ones from Oregon when I broke down in Ashland a few years back. I looked around the house and didn't find them. I'll look in the glove box in Garuda and see if the papers are in there, but I know approximately what was done and can talk to the mechanic about how to document that if I can't find the actual papers.

The whole process is stressing me out somewhat, as you might imagine. I may not do anything on the moving project tomorrow. Since I don't have a hard deadline right now that I'm working against, I can afford to take a little time and breathe between big efforts like that. I'm sure it will hit me hard later.
