a) make friends with your local used bookstore staff, and swap 'em to
feed your habit
b) sell them on Amazon in the marketplace--at least that way you'll
feel better about getting rid of them (and you would be surprised at
the prices you can get for the rarities--or at least can better
rationalize keeping those :-)

The only downside to selling on Amazon is that you have to link to a
bank account.  I didn't want to link to my main account.   I got
around it by setting up a free account with an ATM card at the Bank of
the Internet.  Post 9/11, though, you have to show ID to get a bank
account, so it's more of a hassle.  When I was selling there, you
couldn't link to PayPal; that may have changed nowadays.
