    I usually donate it to my juniors. Here is a choice that would perfectly matches your interests. You can donate or sell those used books so that a new diamond would be able to shine like you and achieve his/her desired objectives just like you did.

    Textbooks for college or any other books you like to have an access is readily possible and will surely help you and the other.

    We generally donate our used books to the local library to put in their used book sales.

    When I was in college and law school, I always tried to sell my books at the end of the semester, but textbooks are very expensive. Almost all the books we donate are fiction, and many of them are paperbacks. It would be more trouble than it is worth to try to sell them.

    By donating them, we get a little tax deduction (for the value of the used books - not much), we get to help the library raise money, and we put the books back in the hands of someone who will read them.

    I call that a win-win-win.

    I used to give all of mine to Oxfam but that was when I was back in the UK, out here in Shanghai I leave them in little free libraries they have in the bars for the expats to swap books.

    The best you can do with your books is either to give to your juniors who are not wealthy enough to buy or you can give it to libraries or donate to orphans.

    I keep many books in my shelves. I love them and try to them when I am free.

    Yes, I have donated some to school and public offices.

    I still own most of my books i have bought. From comic books to college textbooks and novels. Probably someday i will sell them or give them to friends when they ask for them.
