The Book Orphanage

15 Jul 2014
Over the past few years I have accumulated a lot of books. So many in fact that I no longer have room for them all. I recently sorted out my bookshelves and now have a large box of books under my bed that want a proper home. These are a mixture of books that I have read and don't have the room to keep, have several copies of, received in a giveaway long ago or received as an unsolicited book to review. Most of these books sound/are great but I simply don't have room for them or the time to read those that I haven't already. This is the book orphanage.

All of the books in the "orphanage" are free to a good home - you just have to pay the postage for me to send you your requested book(s) (unless we swap books often in which case I will send to you for free. The ones that I was sent by publicist for review purposes I would preferably prefer to send to a blogger who would like to review it but the others I am happy to send to anyone. Most of these books are YA but there are also a few general fiction, fantasy and NA books in there. As an alternative to being mailed - if you are someone I am likely to meet up with in the future (ie. A Londoner as I will be there shortly for two weeks) I will happily give it to you in person.

Also if you think I simply HAVE to read any of the books rather than giving them away let me know in the comments (some I have read, some I haven't).

All the books available are below - a strike through means it is no longer available / is not currently available. I will send books to countries other than the UK but postage can get expensive to other countries (if you are US based, it is probably cheaper for you to just buy the book new) so bear that in mind.

  1. I love this idea! What a great way to give books a home! :)

    If you can't find them good homes with book bloggers, why not donate to a local school? I'm a high school teacher in the US and lots of my English teacher friends have a classroom library for their students to borrow books from. Just a thought. Good luck! :)


If you leave a comment I promise to cherish it forever :) I will also try to always reply.
