Secondhand: Book Club Discussion Thread #2

We’re reading Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale By Adam Minter available at Indiebound or wherever you get books. This week, the goal was to make some headway into the book and get in up to chapter eight.

Here’s some conversation topics to get us started:

  • Now that you have a better sense of the industry that gets used stuff into the hands of people who want it, are you interested in changing the way you dispose of stuff?

  • Having seen how other countries handle their secondhand stuff, what should yours do differently?

  • What was the last thing you had repaired rather than disposed of?

See you in two weeks for the finale, also, we’ll be doing a new vote soon on other books to read, let me know any recommendations you have!
