National Novel Writing Month needs your books to help support its free writing programs for adults and kids!  You don’t need to participate in the writing challenge in order to donate, and there are several ways you can get your books to us.  If you’d like to do more, print out one of our fliers and hang it up at work, at your favorite coffee shop, at your library, and anywhere else you can think of!  You can also volunteer, and help me collect and sort books.

  • Bring you books to a drop off location and leave them in one of our labeled boxes.
  • Bring your books to a Pittsburgh region write in.  You’ll be able to tell who we are by the preponderance of laptops and notebooks.
  • If you have a large number of books you want to donate, email to arrange pick up.  I can pick up from anywhere within Pittsburgh city limits and the surrounding areas.

What you can donate:

  • Gently read books.
  • Text books less than 5 years old.
  • Children’s books.
  • Unopened software.
  • Books on CDs.
  • DVDs.
  • Ex-library copies.
  • Travel guides less than 5 years old.

We cannot accept:

  • Water damaged books.
  • Books with missing pages or covers.
  • Books with excessive writing or highlighting (a little is fine).
  • Magazines.
  • Books without ISBNs.
  • Textbooks older than 5 years old.
  • Reader’s Digest Condensed.
  • Encyclopedias.
  • Law books.
  • Custom course materials.
  • Activity books (like coloring books).
  • Books published by magazines.
