It was all just too much work for me, so I'm introducing bookboxing!
Rules are simple:
- Get a box
- Put all books you want to recycle in the box
- Give the entire box to a friend
- Friend takes out books he wants, puts in books he wants to recycle
- Friend gives the entire box to someone else.
That's it. ;-)
(Optionally, you can introduce book expiry by using some mechanism you can think of so that people can get rid of the book once it's obvious nobody wants it. And yeah, there's nothing stopping people from selling those books. Think of this as the Creative Commons Attribution version of Bookcrossing ;-)
Update: Mikko S mentioned to me at Ropecon that they figured out a way to do book expiry: just put a piece of paper between the pages of every book in the box. When you see a book with three or more pieces of paper sticking out of it, you know that it's ripe for recycling via other means.
