Have you held onto and used any of your old college textbooks?

    It is amazing how many of our college textbooks were sold or given away. But some of them are classics that are still useful after years of working and passing through the phases of life.

    Absolutely! I kept all the texts from literature, philosophy and history courses. They're great to read and reread, and they can serve as reference books too.

    Absolutely especially those involved in advanced Math and Research model designs.

    I haven't thrown any of them away.  It's turning into quite a collection.

    I've got a lot of them, and I keep thinking I'll re read some things and produce academic type articles here or somewhere...but I never do.  Maybe I will sooner or later though.

    I still have my Riverside Shakespeare and Milton and Drama book from 16th Century from my undergrad years.  Also my Norton Anthologies.  I know my husband has a number of his science books.

    I had to give up most of them, went and found some replacements, especially for the classic sociology and math. Even with the Internet, real books are mandatory in my household.

    I studied English and Theology, so a lot of my texts were more novels, anthologies etc. as opposed to formal textbooks. I did keep them, and have reread some of them. I also kept some of them on the bookshelves in my classroom when I was teaching, for students to read.
