The slightly worn Narnia books and the old Goosebumps paperbacks that you haven't had the heart to throw away. Round them up and leave them at a local children's ward.

Whether it's on a bus, at the park or in a coffee shop, leave the occasional book behind with an inscription about what you hope the finder will get from it. You can leave your email address too, if you're up for some book discussion.
