You can always look on eBay to start with. Furthermore, on this site many people are asking to sell these types of book and what the value is. Normally, we suggest selling them on Craig's list. You can also check there.


Otherwise, go to your second hand store like the Salvation Army and see if they have any. Many people will donate them to these types of places. Hopefully, they haven't sent all the books to the recycle center yet.
