What to do with Outdated Books

Books 1

gmletzkojr writes "Recently, I was put on a new project at work, which is in a language I haven't used in years. I checked my personal library for books on this language. The books I have are outdated to the point that currently sell on Amazon for less than $1 each. I'm not interested in making money on these books, but I would like them to go to a good home. What do you /.'ers do with your outdated books? Do libraries or schools want these books?"

Save them until winter, then burn them for heat. If you don't have a fireplace or wood stove, give them to a bum to burn in a barrel for heat. By bum I mean an out of work fellow software engineer (except anyone who worked on Twitter or Facebook, you should be warm in the afterlife when you burn in hell). Pay it forward...
