This could make you quite a lot of money since all of us have books that are not being read or used at home. Selling these books can be a good source of extra money. You could even buy cheap books at your local thrift shop and sell them for $5-$50 per piece, depending on the book. You can use 2 apps for this BookScouter and Cash4Books.

That is exactly how Amazon started out, ever heard of the Amazon book club, and if I am not mistaken, it was not really working out for them that well because no one was really buying books, then they had to think of other methods to make money, this is when they started to sell other items other than books, and I guess you know how that turns out, as Amazon is on the fortune list of sites that "make a hell of a lot of money." ROFL. Books may have been somewhat popular back in the day before the internet, when you actually had to read them if you were looking for information, however, I do not see hard copy books being that popular today with all the iPad technology, and eBooks, why need to read hard copies ever again? I even remember back in the day when encyclopedia salesmen trying to pitch their books, and to be honest, I do not think people read as much as they have in the past because our generation is heading into the digital age, not to say that people do not read, as I am sure that hard-copy books and eBooks are still popular in their own ways to a certain degree. I can't remember the last time I read a book.

This is a good way of making money instead of throwing those books away one can make money from them and then use it for charity, it will be profitable that way.Even eBay can be used for selling of old books.

In my own point of view, selling books online would be tough for earnings because we all know that most of the data or information that we need are widely available nowadays at the internet. I really don't know if there would be again a demand for books in our modern times.

I actually know a few who are making money by selling Ebooks and they are able to make good money from it. It's a bit hard for beginners but still a great way to earn.

The main thing that makes it attractive is the demand from the users as most are getting interested in working with Ebooks as they are convenient and easy to carry.

My brother bought books that he likes to read. The books are all filed up now, there is no space for them in our apartment. I believe he started selling some books online. And I see he has been packing books and sending them to the buyers.

Yes that is correct, sometimes I am reading some eBooks whenever I feel to do so because it is really convenient.

These days most are interested in buying E Books so that can cause some issues as most will demand E books so traditional books have a lesser market these days.

I am not sure if you could actually make money by selling print books online. However, I believe there is money to be made with ebooks. You can write and publish your ebooks and make money by selling ebooks or acquire ebooks with resale rights and sell those ebooks.

I am not sure about selling printed books online, however, I think if you can produce a good book, you can make money. I read somewhere that there is Chinese author who has made millions just by writing ebooks. he writes in fantasy genres.

I think that depends if you have interest in writing books and I'm aware of many that are very much interested in reading books and are doing it from many years but not all like to write or publish books.

You don't have to be a writer to make money from books. You can acquire resell rights of the books and sell it to make money. What actually matters is the content of the book and your marketing skills. I order to generate book sales the books must be very valuable. If the book does not have any value, you might not be able to sell.

You are right about it. A lot depends on our marketing skills and that depends if we can make average earnings or profits from our sales.
