- Donate Them Away (AKA Free Adoption): Find a local library, a child next door or even a thrift shop to take your books. Many libraries have drop-off criteria, so check with your local library.
- Sell Your Books (AKA Adoption with Compensation): Many second-hand bookstores will buy your books. In Reno, Nevada a popular bookstore is Grassroots Books who buys and sells all types of books, music and movies. Contact them for dates and times to bring your books in! Also, Amazon is a huge book seller. We can’t forget them!
- Host a Book Swap (AKA Fun Night In): Do you surround yourself with other book nerds who love books too? Then host a book swap! Everyone brings in books they don’t necessarily care for anymore and swap with friends at someone’s house. For extra bonus, have food, drinks and altogether merriment for a great evening in.
Books are the life-blood of a civilization so don’t just throw your books out. Find them a home! With these suggestions above, you will have no problems finding a place for your old books. The only problem may be letting them go without getting all misty-eyed.
