What to Do With Unwanted Books
I will admit that I am somewhat of a book hoarder. I don't get rid of a lot of books, at least not quickly. I have several books sitting on my bedroom floor that I need to find a home for and still haven't. A couple of them have been sitting in there for about a year... But I do have some reasons for not getting rid of books, one of which is that I generally don't buy books that I haven't read or that I'm not almost certain I will want to keep.
I hate spending money. I always have and I'm sure I probably always will. Even when I'm buying things I need I have a hard time. With books I generally only buy the ones that I've already read and loved (and know I will read again) or ones that I'm almost completely positive I'll like. Occasionally I do buy cheap books that look interesting (that has happened far too often lately).
When I want to get rid of books I'll give them away, donate them to the library, trade them for store credit at a used book store, or sell them myself. I really want to open my own little used book store. Really just a store of random things where I sell books, things I've knitted, costumes, really anything of interest. I try to ask friends if they are interested in them and give them away before anything else.
So what do you do with your unwanted books? Do you have any?
