I would like to understand the details of this book donation, so please bear with me. This is not to put down or to diminish the Ce-Da-Na of all donors but just want to make sure whatever books I donate would have impact to the students.I used to have quite a few text books collected through my career, I attempted to re-assess what to do with them upon my retirement couple of years back. I realized that many of these books were obsolete, or about to obsolete, so I decided to chuck them. I may still have some books left but I am not sure if my donation to Myanmar student would make any good. Again, it is neither my intention to go against these donors nor discourage them to continue doing so, it’s just my personal observation at this time. I would like to think I am wrong, and would like to know if anyone could prove me wrong.

My reply :

Most of my posts are old stuff to be archived .

E-books or digital library subscription will have a better ROI than the lengthy and not so efficient process of packing, shipping and getting permits.

KMZ replied :

I agree with you. Sounds good to me. Sounds like a good idea.

I understand the situation, and the purpose of the post is to start/generate some discussions among us on this subject ‘book donation’. I asked Ko WHO on this subject, he told me they usually put those old/obsolete books aside in some cupboards as most of them are of little use.

My point is to raise the understanding and thinking of many of us that the donation of old books is noble and good.
