selling books

Not sure whether this should be in childrens books or here but...

Anyone had experience in taking books to a sceond hand book sellers?

When I went to Pentecostal Sunday School, I was given books as prizes. They are of a Christian bent, as you would expect. All except one has a dust jacket and all are in good condition for their age. They are date stamped 1967/1968/1969)/1970 and all the book plates are made out to me. All are 1st Editions.

Despite going to the Lutterworth (1967) and Victory (rest) publishers, I can find nothing on the Authors.

Is it worth taking them to a book sellers/e-bay/Amazon or should I just keep them? I don't read them. On Amazon two sellers have totally different prices, £250 and £1.50 respectively! :shock:

Hi Meer , I've had dealings with these in the past and they carry a great range and are interested in all childrens book. You can send in the form and they'll give you a quote at least. I've bought and sold with them and they were fair :D

Wait until they put DRM on printed books to prevent them from being sold in used condition, too ! ;)

It would not matter, if some one is looking for a book and it comes up they will still buy regardless. :)
