I love(d) rescuing books!
Note: I no longer do this, as I am going on sabbatical to write and travel.
I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who donated. I found excellent new homes for thousands and thousands of books - YAY!!
I'm leaving this page up, because I strongly encourage everyone to donate books to these fantastic organizations, as well as Little Free Libraries, which is where most of the books I received went.
Soon Illinois prisons will be accepting books again too!
If you live in Chicago, I'm happy to pick up your unwanted books for free at your convenience! Simply contact me through this site. I resell some, fill little free libraries with many, and donate others to Open Books for Literacy, Illinois prisons, Bernie's Book Bank for at-risk Chicagoland children, Cradles to Crayons, Reach Out & Read, Share Our Spare and Turning the Page. Let me help you de-clutter and get those books back into the hands of other passionate readers!
