    Selling books online 1st Aug 12 at 6:00 PM
    I have boxes of books, ranging from adult's fiction to kids story books. Any idea if I can make any money from them?

    I'd like to make some space and some money!

    Please can anyone help.

    I have six bound volumes of world war 1 (2014/18) which I feel are worth quite a bit.
    Does anyone know who would be interested in purchasing them.

    Thanks

    Selling books on Amazon and making money from it is very difficult. I've sold tons of books and made very little because Amazon take a good chunk of it.

    Look to see if anyone else has a set listed:

    https://www.abebooks.co.uk/

    That might help a bit, although listed prices don't always reflect sale prices. You could try looking at Schpock or facebook sales and inviting offers.

    Books were my main online sales up until 2010, I had thousands in stock and then suddenly overnight the market died on me. I've spent the last few years drip feeding books into the charity shops as I had so many to shift and a number of my local shops already had far too much stock.

    I sold mainly non fiction, historical, military etc.
