Stores selling used books are a dying breed. But if you have one nearby, you might want to see what your book collection would garner there.
To find out how much your books are worth, head to BookScouter’s website, which lists the going price on more than 40 websites.
Recent college textbooks and popular hardcover books are generally your best bets for making some money. With paperbacks and older books, you might be better off donating them to a local thrift store.
