I've been beating myself up for several weeks now because I have old textbooks that I need to destroy and I have such a hard time actually doing it. No one, I mean really no one, wants these old, outdated textbooks, so I need to remove the hard covers and put them in recycling. Sounds easy and would clear room in my office, but can I do it? Nah!
You're all book lovers. How to you handle this kind of thing when there is literally no place to donate books? I'm in the same quandary about ARC copies of books. Can't give them away, can't sell them, must destroy them. They should be very easy to just toss in the recycling, but can I do it? Nah!
I'm getting better about donating books to book sales, and if I could find a nursing home or something that wanted books for their little libraries, I would happily donate to them. That's okay; I know someone will enjoy them like I did. But destroying them? Oh my.
So there they sit on my crowded shelves looking at me soulfully and making me feel guilty. I should, I really should - but as Sheila at Book Journey says, "Gah!!!"
