Book Gifting

Postby Bai Shen » Sat Dec 22, 2018 1:49 pm

I almost never reread books. And I have a massive collection taking up space in my house. Due to that and my efforts to downsize I'm trying to figure out a good plan to get rid of them.

Both due to the fact that a lot of them were gifts and the pittance I would get for them I don't want to sell them at a used book store.

I'd like to see them given to people who would enjoy them and pass them along but I suck at mailing things and most people I know that do read already have a massive "to read" pile.

Any suggestions on how to best pass these books along?

there are several charity groups that add reading material to care packages for soldiers.

Or check for local charity resale shops.

Our local libraries have annual or biannual book sales of donated books, money going to the library to purchase new books. Our town being what it is, it's a big deal, and if the weather is good the line-up to get in as soon as it opens can extend over a block.
There are also "Little Free Library" book exchange boxes.
