However you do it, you will hopefully be left with large stacks of books to dispose of. I like to start with BookScouter. Remember, all of these websites pay based on what they think they can sell book for, so books with higher demand will sell for more. If you live near a HPB, this is a great solution for selling your books. You pack up your books, bring them in, and then wait at the store while a bookseller appraises your books. The first is through their trade-in program.

Thriftbooks: Buying Used Books Online
Ever since a university gave me a literature degree certifying that I have read Chaucer in the original Middle English, my taste in books has reverted to very specific, lowbrow stuff. I like murder mysteries, heist books and spy books, preferably from the s through the s. These titles can be hard to find; many of them are out of print, unavailable on Kindle, and their presence in the New York Public Library is hit or miss. But in recent years, my bookshelves have swelled. Westlake and Lawrence Block titles are easier than ever to find online, along with pretty much every other book published in the last century.
Dynamic pricing software cross-referenced every active listing of a used, like-new, hardcover copy of Our Gang across online marketplaces like Amazon and Abebooks, then matched the lowest price. Last March, four months after it was listed, I bought the book for a penny, and Books Squared shipped it to my apartment in Toronto. This handsome volume is sitting proudly on my desk right now. Online, such literary treasures are in ample supply. But deals this good raise an obvious question.
