Sell Second Hand Books

HeaderAt We Buy Books, we aren’t just searching for your oldest and most neglected books… we want any type of books! That’s right, we want you to have a really good look around for any books you might want to sell, regardless of their age. If you do, the chances are you’ll get a very good price for them if you decide to sell second hand books, right here, at We Buy Books.

We believe that our service offers one of the simplest and most convenient places to sell second hand books on the internet, offering an immediate value for the second hand books you want to sell. Quick and easy, the process offers as much pleasure as discovering an immersive new book for the very first time. But convenience isn’t the only advantage of sifting through your teetering stacks of books.

Imagine giving someone else that pleasure: introducing them to a book with a story all its own. And you never know what you might discover when you’re organising your book hoard…

You’d be surprised by just how many books you have lying about the house, gathering dust and taking up some much-needed space.

Well, now’s the chance to make some extra money by getting yourself onto the We Buy Books website and seeing what your second hand books are worth. You may even uncover a rarity: a hidden gem that’s worth more than you could have imagined.

Once we’ve given you a valuation that you’re pleased with, simply send your books to us and, once we’ve received them, we’ll send you your money. All you’ll have to do is decide whether to save the cash for a rainy day, or use it to buy more books!


Make sure your second hand books are in decent condition

You’ll receive a much better price for neat and tidy tomes than battered and bruised books, so before you send anything over to us, make sure that you’ve dusted them down and they look the part. After all, they could end up on display in their new owners home!

We realise that this can be difficult with well-loved second hand books – especially when they have been read to death – but do your best! If you aren’t sure about the state of your books, check out our Book Condition Guidelines page for more information. It’s full of information about what constitutes a defect, and the kind of minor wear and tear we do accept.
