Books are one of the best thrift store items to resell for a few reasons:

  • they’re pretty easy to find
  • you can ship them easily
  • and they’re in demand You can sell books on sites like eBay and Craigslist and at garage sales. But, you should also consider selling them to book-focused sites, like BookScouter.com. Getting books in a set or collection is also a good idea because you can often sell them for a much higher price than what you paid for them at the thrift store. When you are buying books, make sure that you check what condition they’re in and inspect them for any rips, tears or missing pages. Unless it’s a highly collectible book, most people won’t pay for a book that’s in poor condition. Plus, many places that sell books won’t accept books if they have tears, so make sure you check thoroughly. A little wear and tear is okay, though.
