Check out this story about accumulating Seforim.

I suggest you try to open at least a little bit of every sefer (regardless of what it is) and learning something, before giving away or selling. Otherwise, what was the point of accumulating them?

Didn't you post this story a little while ago from a different source?

Two interesting tangential takeaways about the Tzemach Tzedek's library:
1. His library (or a section thereof) was in alphabetical order.
2. He had some very random books.

Possibly, I post links based on what I find at the moment. IIRC, I was bringing a different point out of the same story, last time I linked to it. If you really care to compare the links I use, you need to page @TimT.

2. He had some very random books.

Need to be careful in the terminology you use when talking about a Rebbe.

if you would know how many seforim I had you wouldn't be asking. This is not my personal stash of seforim, rather seforim which I had for sale always just I'm moving now and I'm not interested in bringing them along. We are talking about several thousand seforim for sale. Now my own stash is about the same size. I'm a seforim junkie

have you ever heard of seforim stores? Do you think the guys that own the stores learn them all? This is seforim which were collected with the mind set to be sold...

It wasn't implied at the outset that you are selling Seforim that were acquired for resale.

That being said, I knew one, and I'm sure others have heard of, or knew מוכרי ספרים that were תלמידי חכמים that actually knew the merchandise they were selling (not on the level of the Tzemach Tzedek, but at least some superficial knowledge of some, and thorough knowledge of others).

No need to get defensive, I'm not criticizing you, just suggesting some additional learning.

I think you would get better responses by giving some sort of sampling of what you have to interest people.
