Where to sell used books?

Not text books, but used books?

I bought this book ( don't let me buy diet books anymore) The Paleo Diet, Read through it, learned some stuff, don't really need it anymore. It looks good as new, but I can't find the receipt to return it. (I know that's bad to return something you used lol)

Any ideas where to sell?
I have had really good experiences using half.ebay.com.

There is no cost to you (unlike Amazon) to sell. You should be able to find the instructions and policies on the site. If you have any questions about my experience, let me know!

I sell my used books on eBay. About 2-3 times a year, I go through my book collection and get rid of stuff I don't want to hang onto. If you're a big reader and aren't that concerned with making some money back, another option is selling to a used bookstore; a lot of them will give you store credit (up to half of the cover price) to use toward new books.

Another half.com seller. It's very easy.

I absolutely love www.paperbackswap.com, if you have 10+ books you want to get rid of. You need 10+ books to start your free account there and then you are given 2 credits for that initial effort of listing all of those books to join (you just enter each ISBN and you are done!) Any book you want costs you 1 credit and it comes to you courtesy of the sender paying the postage. Your only expense is shipping a book off at media mail rate when someone wants one of the books you posted, and you get a credit for each time you do that. I highly recommend this site if you are interested in getting books as well as getting rid of books. You can keep any book you get; you do not have to relist it when you are finished reading it. I have not purchased a book (hardcover or paperback) in about 2 years since joining this site, and the books I've gotten are in very good condition.

I tried half.com before I knew about Paperback Swap and it worked out well at first. Eventually, I moved all of my unsold items off half.com and put them on PBS.

thanks, I'll look into half.com and pbswap. I don't think I have ten books, I'm willing to trade..lol, I have a hoarding problem.
You'd be surprised. Anything with an ISBN is fair game! LOL. I've listed very thin paperbacks that my son used years ago that were still in very good condition -- they were requested right away. You can also list audio books, books on cassette (yes, I did say cassette )

I don't have the link here with me right now, but google Powell's in Portland, Oregon. You just enter the ISBN and, if they accept the book, they pay shipping. They don't pay a huge amount per book, but they are great to deal with.

Wurly and proud!

I just sold a LOAD of books at Powells.com today. Thanks for mentioning it. I've cleaned off a shelf or four and have some cash (paypal is sort of cash, right?) to show for it.
I'd love to check out Powells.com as an alternative to swapping! Was having probs with website loading, but seems to be fixed now. Thanks for mentioning this.
