Just wondering if anyone knew a forum, blog, website, store, etc. that would be giving away books, throwing away books or selling them for only pennies. I need to get books to sell.
I'm not certain if you are looking for used books to re-sell? IME, people often want to declutter books. You could advertise for donations - either on Craigslist or in local newspapers or just posting notices on local bulletin boards (you'll often find notice boards at schools and in grocery stores) . Otherwise:
-It's spring where we live, and that means yard sales - always a good source for very cheap books and magazines.
-Church rummage sales.
-Goodwill or other donation shops
-My local public library branch has a table of "withdrawn" books (no longer on loan) that are sold at low cost - 25 cents for a paperback and $1.00 for a hard cover.
ETA: BTW, since I'm not sure exactly about your intentions, I'll just mention that there are concerns about re-selling used books and whether it is fair to the authors.
thanks for all the suggestions.. hadn't thought of those. really? I didn't think there was anything wrong with reselling, there are tons of buy,sell,trade stores and half-priced books, etc. so I'm assuming it's not illegal like napster? well, if you have more info on that, please let me know. As an author myself, I would never want to discredit anyone's work.
