If you’re an avid reader like my girlfriend and I are you likely face the same 2 issues as us:
- What to do with all the books now that we’re done with them (especially if space is at a premium in your home)
- How can we afford to buy more books?
That used to be our issue until we discovered a great site that will buy back your books – including text books – Cash4Books.net. We came across them about 7 years ago and have received around $50 from them over that time. [It would have been much more but in our haste during the house purchase 3 years ago we didn’t have time enough to register, pack, & ship them the huge stack we had amassed at that point, opting instead to donate them en mass to save some time]
They prefer only newer books (within the last 3-6 years, depending on the title) but that shouldn’t be an issue with bibliophiles like ourselves. Registering is easy and selling takes only 3 simple steps:
GET A QUOTE – From the main page of the website, type the ISBNs from your books into the online form (An ISBN is a unique bar code number, usually found on the back cover, that identifies that book much like a VIN for a car). The system will tell you if that book is one that they are interested in and how much they are willing to pay.
- SHIP THE BOOKS – FREE shipping with their prepaid label.
GET CASH – Check or PayPal payment upon receipt of books.
I have my money directly deposited in my PayPal account. That way, every time I get paid I can then use that money that much quicker to pay for more books.
I have another grocery bag filled to the brim with paperbacks and hardcovers which need to be loaded this weekend. I can’t wait to see how much I’m going to get back this time!
