Regular readers will know that I'm a member of both BookCrossing and BookMooch. But today I'd like to share with you some ways in which charities can benefit from your used books.
BookAid is a charity which sends Christian books abroad. They have collection points all around the UK whereyou can leave books. Check out there website for more details. (Not to be confused with BookAid international which sends books using monetary donations).
If you have non-Christian books then bookbanks or charity shops are a good way to go. Some bookbanks send books to charity shops or good causes, whilst others recycle them for money. Before you donate to charity shops its a good idea too check out if they are in need of books- some advertise that they are desperate for them whilst I've seen others actually advertising that their shelves are full! In the UK Cancer Research shops seem to encourage donations, whilst Oxfam have dedicated bookshops where they send their rarier books to be sold at a good price.
