Decided to try out a new meme this week, just to see if Iike it. 🙂 Booking Through Thursday is a weekly blog with a different bookish topic every week. This week’s topic: Weeding.
Do you ever weed out unwanted books from your library? And if so, what do you do with them?
I don’t do this as much as I should. I’m a bit of a pack rat when it comes to books. Just ask my family, they’ll tell you. I have been making more of an effort to clear out books that I just don’t read any more, mostly because I need the shelf space! I have a fairly good stack of books that I’ve already weeded out for the new year, which is helpful.
As far as what I do with them, I usually take them to our local used bookstore. They have a really good trade in system, which gives me store credit for the books they take. Of course, this does nothing for my efforts in clearing my bookshelves, since I usually turn around and buy more books, but it’s fun. If they can’t take the books, then I usually donate them to Goodwill. I have also donated them to our local library in the past.
What about you? Anyone else have suggestions for what to do with their weeded out books? Please leave responses in comments!
