What to do with those old books?

You know the ones we mean, wet, torn, worn, and perhaps just a little smelly.........

  • Thank it for the hours of enjoyment it has given you.
  • If it is a paperback, it can go directly to the recycling.
  • If is a hardback, remove the hard cover and dispose of it in the garbage.  Put the inside section in the recycling bin.
  • You have given it a chance to live again and perhaps be a part of a new best seller some day, the wrapping for a beautiful present, or some other great adventure!
