Used Books


A few different book piles here and there, some I have gone through and a lot I haven’t but now the problem I have is the pile of books that I have read. There are a lot of books that I want to keep and a few I don’t want to keep anymore. The thing is I will never throw books away even if I don’t want them anymore, usually in the states I used to trade them in at the bookstore or I give them away to a used book store or someone that can make use of it.

I haven’t found a place such as this in Kuwait, I have looked around a bit but not sure where to look exactly. I want to give the books away but I’m not sure if they would be appropriate in a public library, or how well they would be treated in the English section. I just want to give them away to a place that could make use of them or sell them, some are reference books and some are fiction & non-fiction books. Anyone found a used book store that would take books?

    Looks like the only folks who do are

    They have a store on the first floor of Salhiya complex. But please be sure to call and confirm if they’re buying now. Last time I checked they were short on storage space and had stopped buying temporarily.

    I know LoYAC collected our books for donation to K4K ( Kuwait For Kenya ) project were few Kuwaiti kids actually went to Kenya and helped out. Give a call if interested.

  7. Halahal – Thanks contacted them and drop off a huge amount of books. Yup its at Al Salaam Tower

    instantcravings – Thanks, yeah it seems like it

    Mathai – I gave it to them! Thanks!

    e7mood – I never knew a place like that existed and I don’t think I would find it. I gave my books to Q8books, but I would be curious to see this place, do you have a phone number by any chance

    Akbar – That would be too much, too bad we don’t have an ebay working here. I honestly wanted to give the books to someone that could make use of them instead of them laying around

    Khaled – I didn’t know about that, I will call to see about even though I already gave teh books to Q8books

  8. Books?!? pfffff, I take my information by plugging-in my brain to my PC matrix style :D
