If you’ve been around my blog, you know that I used to sell used books on Amazon.com. I had my sources for finding and buying used books to resell. One of my sources were library book sales.
I once visited a small library that was having a sale. That particular day they were only charging $2 for a bag of books. Most libraries end their sales by doing a fixed amount for a bag of books on their last day of the sale.
I normally used my internet-ready cell phone to check the price of used books on Amazon.com before I bought them, but when I could load up a bag for only $2, I didn’t bother. I found books for my personal library, books for my kids, and books I guessed were worth something if I resold them on Amazon.
Anyway, library book sales are a great way to find used books for dirt cheap to fill up your own library, and to resell if you’re trying to make some extra cash. You can visit www.booksalefinder.com to find library sales in your area.
If you do want to resell used books, you might want to consider joining your local library’s “Friends of The Library” program. For a small fee, you can be one of the first people to view the books, usually the night before the sale, and have first crack at finding books that are resale worthy.
