I saw Denny Smith, 64, pushing a cart loaded with books down Valencia Street. He was on his way to give them to the Community Thrift Store.
How did you decide what to get rid of?
Some are books that I’ve either read or, like the Chemistry of Non-Aqueous Solvents, books that I will never, ever read.
I love old textbooks. Some of these have covers that are just incredible. America and The New Frontier, Changing Civilizations in a Modern World. These are the books I grew up with.
