This week's MoneySaver who wants advice asks...

I've just left a job at a specialist book publisher, where I received a free copy of each book I was involved with. Being specialist titles, they're not of interest to me and are now gathering dust. They are expensive to buy, so I thought I could make a bit of extra cash for Christmas by selling them. I wasn't asked to return them before I left, but despite this, my wife thinks I should check whether my previous employer wants them back first.
