I'll bet you have a few old books lying around that you've promised yourself you'll read "someday". Yep, I used to have some of those too...until I sold them for straight cash to Why not take those old dusty books and turn them into greenbacks? Not only can you earn a few easy bucks, but you can de-clutter your desk and bookshelves while contributing to the green movement by recycling your oldies but goodies.

What is is an online used book buying service. According to their website, " is committed to providing a simple, secure, and convenient way for anyone to sell their books to us with confidence and receive instant price quotes, fast payment, and exceptional customer service." One of the great  things about is that it is free to ship your books to them, which means more money in your pocket! Once you've committed to selling your books to, you will print off a pre-paid mailing label and then package up those books and send them off. If you don't have a printer, no problem - simply send them an email through their online Contact form and request that they send you a label. Once has received and processed your books (can take 8-15 days) payment is sent out within 3 days. Remember, books must be in good condition and must contain the original dust jacket and CD, if they came with one originally. Also, while they buy a variety of books (including audio CD books and textbooks), they do say on their website that the majority of books they buy have a publication date of 2009 or newer.

How Do I Make Money?
The way this works is, you create an account and type in the ISBN numbers of the books you want to sell. will tell you which of those books they want to buy and how much they'll give you for them. To get the most money for your books, avoid excessive pen and highlight marks - they say to keep the stray marks under 20% of the book's pages. One exception is that workbooks, lab manuals, study guides, and books with practice tests will not be accepted if they contain writing. You can choose to be paid by paypal or by check. 

Earning Potential
The earning potential with this opportunity depends on the demand and quality of the book(s) you are selling. I've seen offer anywhere from $0.25 to $10.00 or more for books. Why don't you gather up those old books and see how much you can get for them!
