Abandoned Books

Abandoned books are rarely worth reading. If they were any good, people would leave them on their bookshelves, for others to admire.

I saw these two books on a bench in Tompkins Square Park this past Thursday morning:

Two books on a bench.

They're probably already on the table of the guy on Avenue A who sells books no one would read even if they were the last books on the planet!

On a side note, what happens with Kindle books people no longer want? Is there a cyber-bench where they can be left for others to claim and try to re-sell?

      I try to channel (with wires) mine back into the rechargeable batteries — I've had varying degrees of success with this.
