1. Ooh, I’ll have to check this out. I’ve got a copy of benet’s reader’s encyclopedia that has collected dust for over a decade (closer to two decades) that’s probably worth a few dollars. Plus I’d love to go through a bookshelf and see what else might free up some space.

  2. Love this post! So useful! I have two books from grad school and I’m going to give selling them a try tomorrow. I bought both of them for around $90 and they’ve been sitting in the back of my mind (and closet) bugging me. I want to put money into my business, but I feel like the only way I can justify it is selling stuff. I’ll check out your Poshmark post too:)

    • It was quick. I was able to monitor my progress through my account. I did sell this during the heightened COVID restrictions, so everything was a bit slower. But I would say the fastest part was them processing it! I knew within a week for sure what I was getting via PayPal.

    I have hundreds of books. How many does it take to get to $20? I’m just trying to figure out what I’m looking at as far as return goes. Thank you for the article and in advance for your help!

    • It really depends on the item! I would suggest that you start by typing in maybe 5 ISBNs and see where you are at! It didn’t take very many for me. I was pleasantly surprised!

    Thanks for this post. I bought some books off Ebay and they all came with a receipt that had sellbackyourbooks.com on it. That’s how I came across this article. The Ebay store is called second.sale, 1059666. It sounds like this is the reseller potentially, or partner with this website at least. Pretty cool. Maybe I got your books 😉
