I have a lot...

I have a lot of old books. Where is the best place online to sell them?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have managed to make a onedrive file with most of the titles and pictures of most of the books. What would be the best course now?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

All of the books are not antiques, just older. The library contains many books, maps, etc., about England, international relations, specifically largely about Russia, the Kennedy assassination, civil rights.

Hi, Doris, I have pulled some of the older books and could make a list of just those, or would you prefer to see the entire list I've catalogued to date, the onedrive file?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Would the $34 be in addition to the $43 referenced in the blurb that came up earlier?

I do not participate in the phone call services. The ad for a call was auto-generated by the site, not me.
I will still continue to work with you in writing an answer you can print out at no extra cost.

There are three places I recommend for selling your books.

Since you have a large number of books, I suggest setting up a store on these sites.

Abebooks.com

Amazon Marketplace

Biblio.com

Or you could try eBay in the Buy It Now format which is usually closer to retail than the auction format.

SEE THE SUGGESTIONS HERE...
How to sell books:
http://www.internetbookselling.com/sell-old-books.html

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20%-50% more than retail values.

I hope I have helped you.
