I’ve been digging up every single non-fiction book we own and doing online pricing with a bunch of different buyback companies trying to sell them. Every one seems to have its own format for where and how to enter the ISBN numbers so it isn’t as simple as cutting and pasting them over and over again… which is what I was hoping to do. Oh well.
I’ve been trying to figure out at what price point each book is worth it to me to sell. If someone offers $0.46 for a book, is that enough? How about $0.96? Does it depend on the book? Am I ever going to look at any of these books again anyway, even if they were once interesting to me?
And sometimes one site will reject a book but another site will offer $9.00 for it, so I can’t just run them all through one single site and then recheck only ones that had a value at that site on new sites. And there are SO MANY different sites…. and we have a *lot* of books.
I wonder what I think my time is worth doing this. lol
I did score with a few items and I think over the next few days I’ll be able to send out some books I’ll get ~$20-30 total return for… plus I still have the stats text I can get $40 for if I decide to pull it off half.com.
It may be starting to snow soon here… I hear little flakes a fallin’
This feels better than just sitting around on my butt wishing I was doing something proactive to lower our debt. I hate when I feel all blah and stymied and stuck.
