Pricing books for a yard sale?

Recommended Posts

I have googled. I have searched the forums. I've found great information on pricing for clothes, household items etc. What I'm not finding is information on pricing for books (or what I found seems overpriced to me).


What should I charge for paperbacks?

Does it matter if they are kid paperbacks?

Hard cover books?

Curriculum/ Work books - what if there is some writing in it?

Curriculum / workbooks - with no writing?

Depends on your area. Here romances sell for about 25 cents each, as well as other paperbacks. Hard covers for about 50 cents. If it is special or very desirable, I might put more. Most used books stores sell them for 1/2 to 1/4 of the original cover price, no matter if it is paper or hard cover, as long as it is in good condition.

Our local library's used book sale is $1 for hardbacks, 50 cents for paperbacks.


If you have quite a few books worth over $10, I would suggest Amazon or Half.com.


I'd also try to sell used homeschool curriculum thru your local hs group--you won't get much for it at a yard sale.
