"If you find a library that does sales, that's a good way to go. Ours has one twice a year, and the first people in line are the ones that sell books on Amazon and eBay. Having said that, they don't want old, out of date text books, almanacs, - stuff like that. Or you could pick your favorite seller on Amazon and ask if they would take the books for free if they paid the shipping. As you say, I hate to have them tossed out." - arrete

McKay's used bookstore in Nashville actually buys back for cash used books and most little mom and pop used bookstores give trade credit for used books. Outside Mckay's used bookstore they have a "free bin" where you can put books that Mckay's didn't want because they were too beat up or old or about stuff that no one cares about any more like computer books.

We have a little used bookstore here in Town called Grumpy's book peddler and he gives trade credit and the last time I was in there I took a box of books that my wife's sister gave me and I ended up not having to pay anything for the books I picked out in there.

My point being that used bookstores usually give trade credit for used books and it works out to around 2 for 1 in trade credit. It's a great deal!
