    I've just finished uni and have heaps of books i will never read again and found a website fatbrains.co.uk that buys old books just like these sites that buy dvd's and cd'.

    I wanted to know if anyone has used it before since i'm a bit cautious as to whether its legit or not and what sites people may have used to do this that worked well?

    thanks

    Their buy-from-you price looks quite low - you can probably do better on Amazon, albeit at a slower pace.

    I think they only buy select titles. Have a look at back2cash.co.uk who will buy most non-fiction books

    I used them twice. First time I got £40 for ten books... the second time because of a "system update error" I lost out on £60. Never again.

    Same experience as Eric, but they stung me on my first trade. I traded in 2 books, the best was for £24. They accepted the first book and due to a "system update error" only gave me £4 for the book they originally offered me £24 for!! DO NOT USE!!
