Even in an age of digital reading, printed books are still in demand and can be donated if you're ready to make room on your bookshelf at home. The rule of thumb for donating books is this: If the book was published less than two or three years ago, donate it to your local library, where it can be resold to raise money for the library's valuable work. If it's an older book, donate it to a Salvation Army or Goodwill store, where it can be resold in the store. Either way you donate them, be sure to get a receipt for tax deduction purposes.
