I ALWAYS donate my books, and I have to be honest, it's because I am too lazy to sell them (or occasionally way to offended by the low prices offered by used book buyers, although I certainly understand why they can't offer me what I want).

Also, I sort of love the idea of making sure that some of my favorite reads make it into the library system. I don't donate them to the Seattle libraries, but rather the Sno-Isle county libraries, which don't have as much funding or prestige.
