I discovered a cool site where you can get paid cash for your used books. This includes all types of books, not just textbooks for college students. (although they do buy back used textbooks too). It’s called Cash4Books.
Basically, you go to the Cash4Books site, input the ISBN from the books (found in the first few pages of your books and/or the back cover), and then see how much they will pay for your books. Then you print out a prepaid mailing label and mail your books to them. (They even pay for all shipping costs!) You will get paid for your books via Paypal or check, your preference. How easy is that? And there are no out of pocket costs to you. Too cool!
And just to see how easy it was (and to see if they would actually buy any of the old books we have!), I tried putting in the ISBN’s from some of the old books we have lying around. I was surprised to see we could get cash for some of our books. (and just in time for the holidays, lol… BTW, I also make holiday money from online paid surveys and by searching the internet, and some of you may be interested in that as well.)
So give it a try, you might be able to get some extra cash for yourself too, AND clean out all the clutter from your bookshelves!
