Read, Recycle, Remuneration

I love to read and I love my books but sometimes enough is too much.

my library

My brother recently graduated from college and had textbooks he knew that he would never use.  He set up a seller account on and immediately began selling his used books.  Not only did he get them out of the house, he recycled and made some cash.  
With some gentle prodding, I decided to try it for myself.  It takes less than 10 minutes to set up the count and start selling.  Amazon does all the hard work, you just have to take the books to the post office.  I sold 2 books priced at $75 each and on Monday I sold 3 more books.  

Consider an seller account  to rid yourself of books (you don't want to be a hoarder!) and make some cash.


  1. What a great idea and one I've never even thought of. I buy used books from sellers at Amazon all of the time. I never considered being one. And I definitely have too many books. Trouble is, I probably am a hoarder.

    Have you been to the islands lately? Mid October and November are some of my favorite months. It has begun to cool off and season hasn't started yet. it's like the old days.

  2. I sell my old textbooks there every semester. I also try and buy them from other sellers. It has saved me lots of money plus I don't feel like I am being wasteful. Congrats on your new pocket money:)
