Books are covering almost every available space, even the new bookshelves are almost full so I thought it was a great time to ask the very important question – what to do with the books you no longer have room for?
This post was inspired by a letter (I know snail mail is still in use for non-bookish deliveries :D) I recently received from the charity shop, Sue Ryder. It told that for my donations (last year, which mostly consisted of books, DVDs and CDs) raised just over £45 – I was in shock (I knew it was two bags for life full of stuff but to raise £45 was a lot more than I expected).
Actually, donating to the charity shop was the fourth stop on my book clear out – I started by giving away proofs and ARCs to any blogger that wanted them (I’ve kept any that no-one wanted). Then my sister had a rummage through them – our bookish tastes are generally very different – she’s far more likely to be seen reading the classics than me – but she gave four or five of them a go (and now wants to read Pandemonium (she has good taste :D))!
The third stop was my old school library, now due to limited space they only take books that are on the Accelerated Reader Program (which I think is a fab scheme by the way) which left me with an ample amount to take to the charity shop 😀
What do you do with your books when space becomes an issue?
