Tired of schlepping to the Strand to sell your tattered titles? Combine housecleaning with philanthropy via Better World Books. The socially conscious e-commerce site sells donated literature for charity, and through the end of the month it will direct all proceeds to New York and New Jersey libraries affected by the hurricane, including the Coney Island, Gravesend and Red Hook branches of the Brooklyn Public Library. Visit betterworldbooks.com/donate to print out a postage-paid label and mail in your unwanted titles without even leaving the couch (okay, you may have to walk to the post office).
