I have long since run out of bookcase room or even room for bookcases. (One is even hidden in my closet.) So I mail out books when I finish them to my friends if I think they might enjoy them and in return they do the same. Anything left over is either brought to a used book store or donated to the library.
As a plus I adopted two cats last year to keep my dog company and they love books. So there are a few piles of books that I can't seem to get rid of around the house that have become cat seats. I change them every so often, different heights and places and that seems to keep them amused. My dog has also found that books equal good quality time, he likes to knock over those piles.
Trust me, it will happen when the turtles eating ice cream storm the beaches of Iowa under the cover of dead sheep powered pigeon spitting canons while those overgrown excuses for telephone poles sit around a square table toasting the invention of self replicating soap.
