Here’s a little bit about us.

Sell Used Books is the culmination of a business that started out of an apartment ten years ago, with nothing more than a few extra books and an internet connection. Since then, we've turned our passion for books into a thriving small business with an 10,000 square foot warehouse and a handful of employees.

At, we're dedicated to a simple mission: to be the best place to sell used books online. To achieve that goal, we've developed a few core values that we live by:

  • Make it Faster, Make it Easier - With our free, instant quotes, fast, reliable service and free pre-paid shipping labels, we're always looking for new ways to make selling books as fast and easy for you as possible.
  • Provide Spectacular Customer Service - Just like you, we've all had to deal with less than stellar customer service and know how frustrating it can be. That's why we strive to provide outstanding customer service in all we do.
  • Honesty is the Only Policy - We want to be as transparent as possible, so that you know exactly what you're getting into when you send us your books. That's why we post every single customer review we get, good, bad, or neutral.
  • What's Fair is Fair - We constantly monitor the market and update our offers so that we can give you a fair price for your used books - every time.
  • Have Fun! - We love what we do, and we think it shows. It's our passion that fuels all our other core values and keeps customers coming back to us time and time again.

  • These are the reasons that we're your best bet, whether you're an avid reader running out of shelf space, a packrat with a garage full of old books, or just a student looking to sell textbooks. We're not a multinational conglomerate or a billion-dollar corporation. We're real people who are dedicated to making sure you have the best experience anytime you need to sell books.

    We could have picked a slicker, catchier name, but we chose Sell Used Books because from the beginning, we set out to do one thing, and to do it well. If you want to buy cards and stationary and calendars, you can go to a bookstore, but if you want to sell used books, come to Sell Used Books. If you want sweatshirts and coffee mugs with your college logo, head over to the campus book store. But if you want to sell textbooks, come to Sell Used Books.

    Sell Used Books. It's not just our name. It's who we are.

    It's what we do.
