I have started getting rid of old notes and papers from college and grad school. If I haven't looked at them in over 20 years and I don't even remember the class they came from, it's probably safe to recycle them now. I may keep a few souvenirs, though, like my Bio 1/2 lab notebook. Also my binder from my senior year directed reading. It was in a field that I now work in and it amuses me that I now collaborate with a number of people whose work I was reading then when the world of research was elevated and mysterious. Now I know where the sausages come from.

The librarian speaks: recycle them.

Or find someone who "up cycles" books by making non-book objects out of them. (Purses, boxes with secret compartments, using the pages for collages....

You could try freecycle/craigslist for a couple of weeks -- after that I'd say rip the covers off and recycle. Congrats on the cleaning out :)

It may depend on what it is. I brought home my Physics 7 textbook, my dad laughed, and he went and pulled out his college text. Same damn book. I think possibly the same edition. Both still with price tags from the bookstore stuck to the back, showing a 10x rise in prices from ~$6 to $60.

I'd say check Amazon Marketplace for the ones that might be still relevant, see if any are.
