a friend of mine is moving far away and he gave me pretty much his entire library. he has a lot of very nice books, as him and his wife have great taste in literature. although i would love to keep a lot of them, there is no way i could, so i was thinking of selling some of them online to make a few extra $$. but when i went to amazon and started looking them up, i found out that a lot of them start at 0.01$ used. this makes absolutely no sense to me. how can anyone make profit? i was planning to sell them for 7-10 depending on the author and popularity, but now i dont know if i even should put my time into that.
has anyone tried selling books online? was it worth your effort?
i was thinking maybe it would be better to just donate them all somewhere and write it off our taxes, since then we could claim their initial value... and there is a LOT of books, so we could probably write off close to 1,000, if not more.
