This is beyond stupid.While some useless crap like Funko Pop minifigures sell for hundreds of dollars old books end up in trash.I'm not the one who goes from dump to dump to search for old stuff but this time someone dumped very nice french books from 19 century with nice litographies .I was shocked by this reveal.Just because something is old it doesn't mean it needs to be dumped like trash.Same with old documents.

One mans trash is another mans treasure.

Good on you for saving them.

You could start your own online library/blog showing the weird and wonderful finds you come across.

Of course you'd need some kind of disclaimer so you didn't get done for any copyright issues.

The only physical item that most people seem to only care about is a smart phone or anything tech related. Everything else seems to be viewed as Archaic.
And at another time, when they raised a question about fortifications, he said that a city is not unfortified whose crowning glory is men and not bricks and stones.

Notice those donation book bins around town?

They are removing books deliberately. The ones that pose a threat. Ones that tell truths.

Some books, ones that do not contain real knowledge are resold, donated, etc.

But, really valuable books in terms of content are removed for good, destroyed.

Hollywood subliminally brainwashes you to devalue books as well. Note how the hoarder TV shows have hundreds of books being carelessly tossed into their junk trucks.

They want you reading digitally because it’s easy to edit, change sentences, omit phrases, words to suit their agenda and unless you have a printed book to compare to you are none the wiser.

Be very careful what books you decide to throw away.

They will be gone for good soon.

Years ago before the internet got big I'd frequent a used book store and find some incredible deals.


Sounds like you hit the jackpot.

I am so happy that you found and saved them. If I had to chose between TV, movies or books I would choose books.

If my collection of books was displayed I would probably be locked up. And if shit hits the fan you would want everyone of those books! The key to our survival relies on books that show how we once did things.

I agree with you on this very much. Old things have more power and wisdom than newer things. More natural smarts. Just wasn’t appreciated as much as it should have been.

I don't smoke, drink or do drugs but I do scour every old book shop, Goodwill, Flea Market and salvage store for old books.

I have personally witnessed these women working at goodwill who seem VERY out of place selectively taking all of the books of knowledge from the shelves and putting them in the garbage stack, when I ask if I can purchase them they tell me no.

They leave garbage novels and love stories and trivial garbage on the shelves.

The Goodwill is anything BUT a place of good will..


It is all by design and they all follow their orders. A new way to bring about censorship.

The Constitution is a blend of 'moral certitude' -- which is one of the reasons that criminals are determined to be rid of it and We the People must be even more determined to defend it.

"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." - Thomas Paine

The only thing the Illuminati fears is an independent person who can live, eat, sleep, stay warm and defend themselves separate from Federal help. Pray that the Lord gives us more time! The End is near and time is short!

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion. ~Proverbs 18:2


For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible

Good on you OP. Knowlege IS power. What's more, those books were old. Once gone they're gone forever. I too save stuff like that from time to time.

Yesterday after I returned home I've got call from another guy who has old books and wants to sell them because he has no use for them .I said to him better sell me than throw to trash.I've dedicated myself to saving old books and documents.As you said once something is thrown away ,it is gone.What a sad time we live in :(
