Bookworks on Clark St. just south of Wrigley Field buys books, but they're pretty picky about what they'll take.

NaNoWriMo has partnered with Better World Books and will be collecting used books from October 1 through December 15. For details on where/how to donate in Chicago, see http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/node/3614410.
