Oh, good idea to leave them in the laundry room! I was kind of wondering about that before I posted.

The vast majority of campgrounds I have stayed at do have lending libraries. Note that some, if not most, will "weed out" those that are not PG...depending on the type of campground. One's I have worked at are family oriented and we do remove (and donate locally) those that youngin's may be drawn to I've gotten use to my Kindle, and enjoy it. Lots of books available, many free. I also download audio books that we bluetooth to our TV for the longer drives.
I agree about not watching TV. Much better to sit out, by a campfire and enjoy a good book...or your fellow campers.

Local libraries often have book/video-swapping shelves, and if "antiquing", many of those stores have a book section where they allow swapping.

My wife loves to read, and about four years ago, I bought her a Kindle. It solved the problem of her stashing the read books in the bedroom closet (she too did not just want to toss the book away, and we were "lazy" in donating them). She said it was one of the most "Useful" things I ever bought her!

So, best of all worlds; download a few books to the kindle, start a nice cozy campfire, and read away. Save a tree or two.

Indian cave state park in Nebraska has a book swap area a tote at there museum. You could always leave it in the public restroom/shower house and right free on it. I do that with my old Trailer Life magazine.

You can donate your read books to the local Goodwill and buy books at a low cost. This is another possibility.

I like the old style paper white Kindle. I can't read long on the Ipad or any of the newer brilliant screen devices. Check out the paper white screen type readers. I did and have never looked back.

Most of the books on my iPad are manuals for the RV and motorcycle. But I did sign up for the weekly BookBub email and have downloaded a couple of E-books. My library card still gets regular use, though.
