Sell your books instantly by going to your local Half Price Books store or by selling them on Half.com. Half Price Books is one of the largest retailers of used books in America.
To sell your used books to Half Price Books, you must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid form of ID. When you take your used books to the store, an employee determines the value based on the book's edition, overall condition and rarity. The store is less likely to offer you a good price if the book shows considerable damage or if it already has several copies on the same book for sale.
If you are in less of a hurry to sell your books, you can try selling them online with Half.com. Half.com allows you to list your books by entering the IBSN number as well as the book's condition and any additional comments.
Another option to consider is donating your used books to a charity such as Goodwill. By donating your books, you may be able to claim a reduction on your federal income taxes when you file for the year.
