    Book Donation Collection

    I have two huge plastic crates of old books and would really like to donate them to anyone/ any charity that would gladly collect them because they are extremely heavy. I know that most of the charities/second hand books shops are persnickety about the titles/locations/times/dates/types of books and there are so many books that I don't have time to photograph them all individually or collectively. I am willing to donate and pay transportation fees.

    You can drop them off at Salvation Army. Just make sure they're not too controversial.

    Textbooks, magazines, or books containing pornography, violence or evil spirit content

    My kids are readers and we had a room full of books. We gave them to friends. I am sure your friends and colleague would take them. It was damn expensive buying them new!
