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 ) 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 ))!
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?
