Although I was unable to find the exact number of books that are thrown away annually, the number of books that are thrown away is bound to be high considering that the United States consumes 2 billion books every year.
Books for Africa, an organization that collects books that would otherwise be thrown away, has shipped over 20 million text and library books to Africa since 1988. Here is a link to their website: http://www.booksforafrica.org/
Better World Books, another organization dedicated to keeping books out of landfills, has diverted 9,000 tons of books from landfills. Here is more information: http://www.alternativebreaks.org/Fundraising_Ideas.asp
