Going on now: Better World Books collection

Have some books that are lying around your room/office? Donate them to a good cause: Better World Books collects and sells books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than 8 million new and used titles in stock, we’re a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders. Learn more here. Books that can’t be sold are recycled.

What can go in the bins:

  • College Textbooks and Study Guides (clean and legible condition) with copyright dates from the past 10 years
  • Workbooks (with no missing pages)
  • Basically any book used in a college classroom (highlighting or writing in books is fine so long as the text isn’t obscured)
  • Accompanying CDs
  • Hardcover Fiction/Nonfiction
  • Paperbacks (must be in like-new condition with copyright 1980 or newer)
  • Former Library Books
  • Travel Books (with copyright dates from the past 5 years)
