I visited a really neat used book store last weekend.

Unfortunately many of the outdated Electronics book were
still going for $20.  

Many of the books there were library cast-aways.  So even
if you give to a library, the books could eventually end up
sitting on a shelf forever, at obscene prices.

Give to your local friends.  Give to fellow hams.  Set up
a library at your club.  Or drop off at one of the swap
meets or vendors at the ham conventions.  There was a
guy at Pacificon selling books at 1/10 the going rate.
"Gets them off the shelf and read by someone.", he said.

Give to readers, not collectors.
