I am wondering how I can list magazines to give away.  Where would I list these?

I had a yearly subscription to Phoenix Home & Garden for about 3-5 years. They are beautiful magazines in good condition and would rather give them to someone then trash them. I've removed my address by either removing the address label or cutting it from the cover.  If there are any teachers out there, you can use them in your classrooms (collages, alphabet books, to illustrate homemade stories, etc.).

The book bazaar is a good place to start or maybe offering them in the Home-school forum.  It's very generous of you and I'm sure someone will appreciate it very much. 

ETA: you can't list them on your shelf but you can do a forum post and list the titles there.

How about the ROAK thread in the Club Members Thoughts forum?

just remember that these cannot be shipped via media mail.

perhaps list them on a freecycle board in your area?  www.freecycle.org

Magazines can be sent printed matter at a discounted rate. Make sure the address is exactly right because if it cannot be delivered, it will be recycled. patti-

Put that you have them to include as freebies for orders from your shelf - and put it right in your signature line.  That way, every time you post, other PBSers will see it.
