Written by Christine

If you’re like most people in Barcelona then you’re probably finding yourself constantly short on space and storage. If you’re cleaning out your apartment and getting rid of some old things, ShBarcelona suggests donating or selling your old items instead of throwing them in the trash.

If you find yourself wanting to clean off your bookshelves to make some space, here are some places in Barcelona that will gladly take your used book donations and put them to good use!

Re-Read Librería Low Cost

Re-Read has several locations in Barcelona (for example in the districts of Eixample, Gracia and Ciutat Vella) and can’t be beat when it comes to prices. Since all of the books are secondhand and previously used, they are then resold for very low prices to be read by a new owner.

Drop off your used books at any of Re-Read’s bookstores and then browse the racks for some new reading material at discounted rates that are hard to match anywhere else. Check out their website for a list of locations to find the one closest to you.
