So we've been cleaning the house out because we're moving in less than 2 weeks, and I found a big bag full of old PC mags from years ago when I was obsessed with the things (before we had broadband I believe). They're no use to me any more and I'm trying to get rid of as much as possible to save time moving stuff on the moving day.

Includes: 
May - Dec '06 NetGuide [8 total, no disks] (Including the July 100th Issue Collectors Edition)
Jan, Feb, April, July, Aug, Sept, and Oct. '06 NetGuide [7 total, no disks]
Jan, March, and June '07 NetGuide [3 total, no disks]

March, Oct. '02 PC World [no disks]
May, June, Aug, Dec'03/Jan'04 PC World [no disks]
Dec'05/Jan'06 PC World [no disks]
Jan and Feb '06 PC World [no disks]
Nov '06 PC World [Disk Included]

March '05 APC [no disks]
July '05 APC [no disks]

Summer 2005 Windows XP Handbook [no disks]

So all up, there are 31 magazines, one has a disk, the rest do not unfortunately :(
They do make a for a great read though. Flash backs to what was once considered top of the line tech, and their extremely high price tags. Quite a lot of stuff about mobile phones/portables. And it's quite a laugh seeing all the old advertisements in there too. 

Is $15 reasonable for the lot?
If you're feeling generous you could do more ;D need money to get a coffee table for the flat. Haha
Reply here if you're interested and I'll PM address etc. because these things weigh a tonne and I ain't planning on posting them unless you want to pay shipping hahaha. If you'd rather meet somewhere, that's fine too, just let me know.

I have the same dilemma so to speak.  Got a couple of boxes at my parents place.  Was thinking about donating them to a Red Cross shop. Someone may be interested in them.

I was thinking of giving them to a Charity too, but I think someone on here would get better use out of it and they would probably end up in a store sometime anyway haha.

Everyone here probably already has boxes of mags they are also wondering what to do with.  lol

Actually, I wonder if anyone still buys PC mags?
