If you love books and need a bit of extra cash, here’s an idea. Visit your library or call them to see if they have books in their basement. Visit your local thrift stores and hit the garage sales. Don’t forget to look in your own house and ask relatives and friends. You may be able to make some fast cash.

Take photos of the books and post them on eBay. Books sell better on eBay when they’re listed in batches and by genre. For example, twelve mystery fiction books or 24 cookbooks for sale. You can put a side note to ask anyone who is interested in a single book to contact you.

Make sure you charge for postage or include it in the price of the books. If there are just books in your package, consult your local post office about sending them via book rate. also buys used books to resell.
