Smile I'm moving and would like someone to have my book collection...

I'll be moving away from Alanya and I won't be able to carry all of my books with me. They are mostly novels in English and most are brand new. I am open for exchange ideas...

Re: I'm moving and would like someone to have my book collection...

Don't hold out any great hopes.
Although in a different area I didn't get a single reply when I offered english books free and delivered last year.
No charites seem to want them.
Even shops & stalls selling them don't want them
I'm reduced to sneakily leaving a carrier bag full outside shops just to make space

Local school might be grateful, even amongst the teachers themselves.

I had a Turkish friend who spoke perfect English. Asked where she learnt it, started in junior school, "this is a pencil, this is a chair" stuff, watched films in English, the rest from reading English books...........she's a translator now.

Local hotels may take few., some have small libraries for guests. Good luck

Shirley at the Viking restaurant in Oba possibly still has a book exchange area in her restaurant. Could be worth a try.

Thanks for all of the replies. Since I do not have a car, I cannot carry them anywhere so unless someone is willing to pick them up, they will unfortunately most likely have to end up in a garbage container

Or as a last resort, label them & place them by the side bins.

In my experience anything, everything that's worth a bit of money or useful that's left by the side of the rubbish bins is quickly spotted by someone.

Bound to be someone keen to flog/ pass them on.

Good idea. I put stuff occasionally by the bin and it's gone in 60 seconds.
