Off the top of my head, Oxfam has a bookshop up in Bloomsbury.

How about contacting a local church? With Christmas coming they often have bazaars, fetes etc. St.Judes I think used to collect.

Doctor's surgeries, and Dentists waiting rooms appreciate recent, decent magazines (although why their patients can't take books along beats me) - I was in the dentist the other week, reading about foreign affairs, I don't think Hitler will move into Czechoslovakia.

I seem to have got talked into running the book stall at St.George's cathedral Christmas Fair (This year on 27th November) for a while now and would be able to pick up the books from you if you wanted to PM me. After the Fare some one tracks down a charity to take all the unsold books and other items so they dont end up at the tip.
