Or do you simply not get rid of books? At all? (This would have described me for most of my life, by the way.)
And–when you DO weed out books from your collection (assuming that you do) …what do you do with them? Throw them away (gasp)? Donate them to a charity or used bookstore? SELL them to a used bookstore? Trade them on Paperback Book Swap or some other exchange program?
I haven't weeded out my library in ages, I hate parting with books and it's honestly the last thing I want to do. Last time I remember doing this, I got rid of about ten cook books. They are the one type I knew I had too many of, and never hardly looked at them. I tender 'ad lib' most recipes, or throw the 'tried and tested' ingredients in as I remember them. Maybe that's why I'm not a good cook?
I never sell any books I part with. Either I pass them on to friends, family or give them away to charity shops. Where I live we quite often have those charity bags given to us, so all you have to do is fill them up and leave them out on the driveway. That's how I get rid of most of mine, when I really have to, that is!
I'm quite interested in a paperback exchange, but really do not know where to start. Can anyone recommend one I can use living in the UK, please? I think that would be a great idea, and would love to start doing that more often.
What do you do with your unwanted books, if, and that's a big IF, you have any?
