    I used to buy books, but found out that very often books review don't reflect the real value of it. So, recently, I get the book from the library, don't have problems with that, and if I like, I buy it. Books I don't like usually give to friends or sell at antique shops specialized for books.

    I save them in my book store. I saw many peoples who waste their book after reading.

    Well! As they say "Knowledge shared is knowledge spread" and thus whenever I have extra books I make it a point That I donate it to a nearby orphanage. I have a young nephew and he is growing fast with every passing year... I have an orphanage for small children near my house...All the books that my nephew has made use of I give them ahead to them...
    PS: The feel good factor that comes along as a bonus feels awesome!

    I'm a bit of a recovering book hoarder. Earlier this year I sent a box of my school books off to be sold second hand, and took another box of books I've read to the charity shop.

    In a couple of my local supermarkets, they have shelves of free books, and you can make a monetary donation to charity in return. I've borrowed a few books from there, and am planning to take my next box load there!

    I used to not selling my old books. I have a separate Cupboard for my old books . I am fond of reading books again and again. Personally, in future i would not wish to sell it.

    The trouble is I do not really like keeping the books after I read them. For some I like to give to someone I think would like it, or swap for a book they have read that I can bend as necessary.
    I am thinking about setting up a section in my teams "technical" library for "bus books" to encourage folks on the team to share books.
    I know some people who leave their books on the bus or in bars in hopes that someone else will find it and enjoy it.
    I have also thought about donating them to a women's shelter.
    What do you do with your books?
    I am same like you i also dont like to take books after reading so i just give them others who don't have and who are not capable to buying new.

    When I was younger, I only borrow books from friends. My daughter, 16, has been buying books since she was in pre-school. Now we can build a library because she really has lots!
