Where is a good second hand book store or Is anyone interested in these books?

Postby havenxu » Mon, 11 Jul 2016 7:20 pm

We are moving out of Singapore, but we accumulated loads of books during the past four years. Can anyone please recommend where I can donate/sell all these second-hand books to? All the books are in good condition, read only once or twice. I only know Bras Basar complex.

But anyway, if anyone is interested in any of the books, we are happy to give them out for free or at a very low price(e.g. S$5/book or whatever price you offer). You may pick them up at downtown mrt or raffles place mrt. Contact me via txt 97219412.

Or they will all go to Bras Basar this weekend... :o

i remember studying data structures and C++ a long time ago, never really dabbled with C# though, however none of those books are of my interest to be honest, but i do think you'll find at least one bookshop in bras basah willing to buy from you.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Sign up for Book Crossing... http://www.bookcrossing.com/

GIve your books away. Having bought/read many:

a) Career books are all throwaway reads... definitely leave lots of them in and around SMU.
b) Trading books are BS... how I did it...except you won't... and now outdated
c) C algorithms... if you are a programmer... good stuff... doesn't need to be C#... understand linked lists and much more, applicable to any programming language
