Make Money by Selling Old Books

I went through my books and DVD's and had some electronics I no longer use. I have made several hundred dollars by selling them on Amazon and eBay or try craigslist!

How much commission were you paying to Amazon? I too was selling books, videos and CD's on Amazon till they starting taking such a high fee. It wasn't worth it when they hiked the fee up, or added an extra fee. I don't exactly remember now but it was outrageous.

There is also a fantastic site I have found called www. which allows you to "swap" old books, CD's, & DVD's for ones that others have posted. It's all completely free, the only things you pay for is the cost of shipping. Any & every book, CD, or DVD that you have lying around you can post on this site and if another member wants one of the items you have posted you simply mail it to them (no more than $3-$5 tops in postage) and for every item you send to someone else, you receive a "credit" that you can use to order other items from other members, again at no cost to you! There are over a million books on every topic you could think of, even text books. A friend of mine saved $700 in college text books last month by using this site! It's fantastic! Again, the web site is
