BOOKS - URGENT

Question

I have asked this question before, but as I am inundated with books and need to have a clear out, I wondered where the best place, preferably in Babant Wallon might be?
Most of my books are in English, a few French and lots of kids books, BD's etc.
I contacted Pele Mele in Waterloo but they don't take many English books I was informed.

I also only know about Pele Mele. Another suggestion would be to make photoes of all and put them on one of these groups on facebook. I think the best for you is Books For Sale - Brussels (English). I would also be interested to buy depends what titles you have.

I just took bags of books and clothes to the Salvation Army where there is a second-hand shop for clothes, appliances, furniture, books (including English) at Boulevard d'Ypres, left at Place de l'Yser, and left from Bvd de Dixmunde. There is a hostel there for men in difficulty, and the shop provides work and help for them. Also there is an Action Aid book sale at Stonemanor on 21 September. See following details:

I am always on the lookout for English language books - though not the children's. You can contact me via my ad in the small ads under 'donations'. If they are what I would read, I am perfectly happy to come and collect them.

Thanks to all for the suggestions.
I'd possibly prefer to support a charity , but don't want to hang on to them forever.

Also I live close to Wavre and don't wish to travel great distances to dispose of them
Uk is great as each village has one or several charity shops who are only too happy to have them.
