Where to Sell Used Books

Selling used books comes up periodically (way too often for a boring question), and Slog just covered it, with advice from a former used book seller.

It starts at Books for Cash, and ends at Re:Books for Cash.

The basics are:

"Ethical used bookstores pay between 25 - 30% of their selling price (which is, in turn, generally half the current retail price) in cash. Trade is generally 50% of sale price."

They cover Elliot Bay Book Company, Third Place, Twice Sold Tales Capitol Hill and Queen Anne, Twice Sold Tales U District, Magus, University Bookstore, and Spine and Crown.
