Do you still have a copy of your high school or college reading list books? Or maybe a textbook from a continuing education class you took last year? Are these books holding up a table or gathering dust in the attic? Many of those books, DVDs and CDs, are worth money. I recently completed coursework in A&P and Pharmacology and decided to sell my texts online.
I sold my three used textbooks to Bookstores.com and was quoted $140.54. I printed out a FedEx label and immediately took the textbooks to a local FedEx for packing and sending: $5.49.. I’ll update when my PayPal account is credited.
Cash4Books – Cash4Books buys mostly used textbooks, but does buy some other used books. From their sample list, I saw Plato’s Republic and The Prince by Machiavelli, for example. Books must have an ISBN number. Scan or input the number, get a quote and Cash4Books will send a box. Upon receipt, they will issue a PayPal credit or send a check.
Half-Price-Books – I’ve sold dozens of books at Half-Price-Books. Most locations buy more than just books, but also take CDs, DVDs, and Blue-Ray, too. Common items are paid less, but cash is cash.
Other online options for selling books include:
- Bookscouter.com – compares prices at various online book buyers
- eCampus – for textbooks
- BookByte – also for textbooks
- Comicbookclassified – comic books only
