Last weekend when I was in the basement doing laundry, I noticed a large cardboard box sitting in the corner. Since I had a few minutes to kill before the washer finished spinning dry, I wandered over and began searching through it. Inside I found a box of old University textbooks. Books on Anatomy, religious study, psychology, etc. filled this box to the rim. I enjoyed reminiscing about the course I took and the information that I learned. When the washer finished its cycle, I continued doing laundry, but the box of textbooks still stuck in my mind. I have been out of University for 10 years now and I haven’t touched that box of books since. I figure that the textbooks in the box were once worth over $2000, but with the change in technology and research, they are probably worth 25 cents a piece. Although, they were invaluable at the time, its saddens me to see the hard earned money I spent, now sitting wasting away in my basement.
