Where to send your gently used books–if you can bear to part with them, that is

One of my favorite parenting/book blogs is Playing by the Book, a blog devoted to children’s books and the crazy, fun crafty things they inspire the author to do with her children (Bubbles and Spells and Books Full of Magic — oh my!).

Every year, Playing by the Book posts a list of charities around the world dedicated to promoting books, reading, and literacy. The updated list came out this week, just in time for my latest decluttering project. It’s hard to part with books, but should my mother succeed in her mission to convince me to get rid of the bookcase in my upstairs hall, it’ll be nice to know that my books will go to a good home.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
