I keep my old ebook readers. They are filled with books and memories. I have only gotten rid of one, the Literati, because it was awkward and had a strange screen glare.
However, most people don't want sevent Kindles and three Nooks, so here is how to get rid of them
Barnes and Nobel Nook
Barnes and Noble participates in state recycling programs, and these are their instructions on erasing and unregistering your Nook.
"To erase and deregister your NOOK, do this:
You can sell your Kindle back to Amazon. I was not impressed with the prices - $5 for a Kindle one? - but you can get credit toward a new Kindle.
If you go to the Kindle buyback page, you will see the steps and any promotions. Currently, there is a $20 gift card from Amazon toward a new Kindle. Amazon will send a shipping label to you so that there is very little work involved.
Amazon also has a recycling program. They cover the costs of shipping and recycling your Kindle; you print the label and take the Kindle to UPS. You can also call Kindle support at 1-866-321-8851 for help.
