Make Money Selling Your Old Books

Okay, I know that this site is mostly for saving money but hey we can all use a good recommendation for making money. Right? After all, you need to have money to be able to save money! Now this isn't going to make you rich but it will help you get a few extra dollars here and there.

If you are like us you have a ton of books at your house. We could lead the Book-a-holics Annonymous support group! What do you do with all the old books that were good the first time but your never going to read again, or the ones that weren't any good or just aren't your thing?

We have found some great sites that will let you sell you old books. We have been using Half.com for quite some time now, and average between $10-20 a month, like I said you're not going to get rich this way! Using Half.com is easy, you type in the ISBN of the books, dvds, or whatever you are selling. You then put in the condition your item is in and you get to pick how much you want to sell them for. If you are like me and just trying to clear out space, then price the items to go, at rock bottom prices. But if you are trying to make a lot or have an item that is worth a lot mark it at a higher price. That's it your done. You will get an email notifictaion when your item sells, and then you have 3 days to ship out the item. Now comes the shameless plug, feel free to check out my Half.com book shop, I am constantly adding new items.

I just came across a new site that will also buy your books, Cash4Books.net. It's easy enough to use as well. You go to their site, put in the ISBN of the books you want to get rid of and they will let you know if they are currently buying those books they will quote you a price an you decide if you are willing to sell them at that price. They will then send you a printable postage label. If you can not print from your computer than you can request printing labels from them to be mailed to you, you would then have to pay postage but they will reimburse you. I have not as of yet done business with them but I am willing to give it a try to clear out the space!

These are just a couple of places that we use to help clear up space on our bookshelves, and make a couple of dollars in the process. What are the places that you use?

Half.com: buy/sell used books, music, movies,games
