Have you ever wondered about where to sell your books?

Too many books in one small house 

I am a massive reader and I have huge piles of books threatening to topple over in my bedroom. My bookshelves are jam-packed and even the loft has boxes of books in it.

I have donated over 100 of my old books in the past year but actually, I would like to recoup some of the money I spent on at least some of them.


Where to sell your books? – the avenues I have explored

I have tried the usual routes.

I have dabbled with listing my books on Amazon and on eBay in the past. But, to be honest, it is massively time-consuming. And, getting rid of one or two at a time and succumbing to their big fees and the faff of listing and maintaining inventory has not felt worth it.

So back to the original question …where to sell your books?

Here are some of the things I have tried.

Car boot sales are not currently open and realistically you aren’t going to get more than 50p a book at a car boot sale and oh it can be a long and fruitless day with such an early start. I love to BUY books from car boots sales, in fact, I have had some HUGE bargains in the past but selling them? No, thank you.

I have even tried hitting up a second-hand book shop and asking for a deal and they really weren’t interested in my eclectic range of books.

Once I listed a big pile of books on Gumtree and got messed about by people that didn’t turn up or who just wanted a few. Aggghhh – all so very frustrating.


What am I looking for?

I need an easy solution, one that gets rid of lots of books at once and is incredibly easy to use, a smooth and simple experience and a good price with no fuss.
