I really don't want to dump these books (because someone has to want them). I don't need credits, so donating sounds like a good idea. I'm in SE Michigan arond Detroit. Anyone have any idea what I can do with them.

I live in the same area. You can look at www.booksalefinder.com to find local libraries that have sales that you donate them to. Just click on Michigan and it will show you all the libraries etc. in the area.

The Salvation Army accepts donations at any of its stores.

Good Will will take them, and I bet there are other charitable organizations that have store fronts nearby too.

St Vincent DePaul has some store here in GA.

a school might like children's hardbacks.

and senior centers often have lending libraries that could use an infusion of books.

Connie, thank you for the website!  I found a great sale in April about an hour or so from my home in Georgia...I've already marked my calendar!
