no i know you can't, but was wondering what to do with them after he has finished with them all, and after seeing the books in the library last week i thought maybe they could do with a few, as i mainly see children using it and it is pretty poor

i highly doubt a library would want to receive books, especially if they were in decent condition

awqwww i remember as a kid we never had chips, my dad was a butcher and we had meat and veg every day, we used to so envy the other kids who used to go chip van on a friday, we used to ask if they had any free bits, you know the batter bits (forgot what we used to call them):oops:

I take my books to the local hospital where they have got a little book shop. They sell them to raise money for the hospital and are always very pleased to receive any books.

i know the money used goes to charity, but would rather give the books where they will be read, rather than sold on

What about donating them to the school your boy goes to?
