Book Recycling

Book Recycling

Book devotees are often horrified when it’s suggested that they purge their precious book collection in order to make more space in their homes. But the fact of the matter is, it’s just not feasible to keep every single book you read. After all, read just one book a week, and you will have collected a pile of 52 books, and that’s without taking into consideration all the books we buy with good intentions to read, but never get round to it.

So what’s the solution?

You could give away the books, but these days every penny counts and we all need an extra bit of cash from time to time. Instead, you should think about book recycling. This doesn’t mean taking your books to the nearest recycling centre and watching them be turned into pulp, but is about selling your old or unwanted books online.
