Your copy of The Da Vinci Code is pretty much worthless

As this charity bookstore in Wales can tell you. Even more impressive is the Great Wall of Fifty Shades.
"The Da Vinci Code is one of those books that, while incredibly popular, people don't tend to want to read more than once."
Well, there's always book crafts ...
>2 Euryale:, hurts every time I see something like that. Although outdated reference material is free game, I suppose.
Knowing the internet, somewhere in there must necessarily exist a community of competitive Da Vinci Code collectors.
Something I remember from helping out in a charity shop is that rather poignant moment when you notice that the flow of unsellable copies of some former bestseller is drying up at last...
>3 Cecrow: Yeah, it pains me to see people ruin good vintage books, but I can think of no better use for surplus Da Vinci Codes than being cut up for art projects. Libraries that get donations of "Everyone already owns this" former bestsellers tend to put them straight in the trash.
Yeah, I'm in charge of the sell/pass on/reycle sort at my library. We don't get more than a few hundred donations a week so we usually only have one Dan Brown at any given time... but we always have at least one Dan Brown. (FSoG has pretty much dried up! I think hardly anyone hung onto that one more than a year or two. We still get full sets of the Twilight books pretty often though.)
I can always tell a bestseller is actually really good when I don't see any copies of it come through as donations for months and months after.
my copy of the Da Vinci Code is signed! That has to be worth like a grillion dollars, right?
