Books

Last reviewed: March 2011

The growing popularity of e-readers may mean that people are becoming less attached to their old books and are looking for new homes for them.

To sell used books, check out:

  • Cash4Books.net
  • BlueRocketBooks.com
  • Half.com, an eBay company
  • Craigslist.org
  • BookScouter.com (compares prices at dozens of book-buying sites to find the one that will pay the most for your books)

To donate your books, contact a local library, church, day-care center, senior center, school, homeless shelter, or nonprofit agency, or try the Vietnam Veterans of America, Goodwill, or Salvation Army. Other organizations that accept used books (typically in very good condition) include these:

  • ReadingTree.org
  • BooksForSoldiers.com (lets you send to troops once you've registered as a volunteer)
  • BooksForAfrica.org
  • BooksForAmerica.org
