Sell Second Hand Books

Sell Second Hand Books

At 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.

Say goodbye to your unwanted books

We believe that our service offers one of the simplest and most convenient places to sell second hand books online, 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. Heck, you could even unearth a hidden gem. You’d be surprised by just how many books you have lying about the house, gathering dust and taking up some much-needed space

Our recycling pledge

You can sell books from hundreds of genres with We Buy Books, such as fiction and non-fiction, school textbooks, university textbooks, and CDs, games and DVDs. But sometimes, we receive books that don’t meet our condition guidelines, and if they don’t meet our criteria, we can’t accept them.

We pledge to recycle your books if we can’t accept them, so you can still feel positive because you’re contributing to a positive cause. And if you don’t want us to recycle your books, we’ll return them (postage not included).

Sell books using our app

If you want a fast, secure way to sell your books, the best thing to do is to download the We Buy Books app. All you need to do is go to your app store, download the app, open it up and use our handy barcode scanner to get an instant cash price. We’re available on Android and Apple.

Make sure your books are in good nick

Now, the usual rules apply here. If you want to sell second hand books, the best items are the ones that have been well loved but well preserved: respected and treated with care. 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 know that this can be tough with well-loved second hand books – especially when they’ve 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.
