If you want to donate you can. We accept direct bitcoin but what I would much rather see is a donation of a book to someone who wants it. Here is a list of of libraries and hackerspaces that would like a copy of the book. If you want to donate one to one of these organizations then purchase a physical copy and use their address. Then send me the receipt and I'll mark them off the list and give you credit. If you have an organization that would like a donated book then please send me and email and I'll add you to the list.
