And now on to today’s question…
Do you ever unhaul your books?
.I do unhaul books. I don’t think it’s right to hoard books I won’t read. Therefore, when my daughter outgrows books, I donate them. Where I live, we have a great place to do so. It’s called The Book Thing. It is a place in Baltimore that allows you take books for free. Teachers use it a lot as do those of limited means in the city. It’s a great place. Here is the link for those of you who may be close to me: http://bookthing.org/

One of my life goals is to have a library like the one the beast gave to Belle in Beauty and the Beast (a girl can dream). It’s therefore very rare for me to get rid of any of my books. Should the day come when I decide to unhaul any of my books, I would donate them to the library, school, or friends. Our gym has a small library in the waiting room and take donations too. I don’t think I could ever bring myself to just throw them out.

Get rid of books? Of course, all the time. I certainly don’t have room for all of them. First, I generally offer them to the other readers in my family. My grandmother, sister, and father are all voracious readers. Kids books that we no longer need (as my kids outgrow them) are offered to my nieces and nephew, and then offered to the local daycare and my kids’ school librarian. Whatever these people don’t want goes to the local thrift store.
Now for something completely horrendous. I take old Reader’s Digest books (because many thrift stores won’t take them anymore) and I use them for crafts. I’ve made some lovely notebook covers and treasure boxes from the pages and notebooks from the covers. It’s awful, I know, but they’re just going to be thrown out.
