When I got my K3, I tried to encourage my husband to use my K2.  I think he read one or two books on it and it has sat on the dresser ever since!    In fairness to him, most of his books are about Astronomy and History with lots of photos that are just not very compatible with the kindle screen. 

My nephews are way too young for a kindle yet and I don't know anyone that I could just give it to. 

Should I try to sell it?  where?  here?  on eBay?  What would be a fair price (with the new K3's being so reasonably priced)?  Should I just shove it in a drawer and forget about it?

You could probably sell it for $75 or so.. Refurbs were going for $89 just last week. There are threads somewhere here in NQK about donating old Kindles to military personnel.
    Someone here donated one to one of my best friends just before he shipped off for his 7th tour in the middle east. He was so grateful, said it was a godsend. He is home now, but they've already been told they're going back again at the beginning of next year.

What a great idea! I will look for that thread. Unless your friend has another friend in his unit that would like one?

$75 including shipping would probably be my max for it at this point to pay.

I really like the donating to a soldier, and if you can't find that maybe seeing if your local special needs teacher might know a child that could benefit from it.

A friends DH that just deployed took an ereader this time around, but I can't remember if it was one of their eInk nooks or her older Sony. Either way, I'm sure it will be great to have.

You could also check with donating or selling to your public library.  If they already have a Kindle lending program they would appreciate having another device to lend at a reasonable cost. If they don't, this might be a good way for them to start.
