What a great idea, I really like the recycling banks, and now I've got somewhere to put all those trashy books I couldn't possibly admit to reading. I'm not sure however, that they'd want 3.99 novels from Tesco's....

This is a great idea and I fully intend to use it to offload some of my books. I have a serious book "habit" and the flat looks like a bomb's gone off in a library!

Oh, I've just looked at the picture on the news section and the bin is tiny! I'll have to offload them one at a time!

We could be organised and drop off each book as we read it, so the bin isn't over filled.

However it's more likely that I'll keep shoving them into a big bag, until finally I get around to taking them to a charity shop on Walworth Road, or give them to my mother.

One day I'll just buy a kindle instead.
