    I've just finished GCSE and I have a Heroes book with highlighted and annotated with key quotes. My family say I should just chuck it but I'm wondering if anyone would want it (in terms of selling it), just for the sake of getting a bit of cash towards new textbooks.

    Does anyone think it's worth selling or should I just throw it away?

    Fox Corner - I think this is in the wrong section (sorry). Feel free to move it if necessary

    Well it's your own book right? So you should do want you want to do with it. Albeit, you won't get a lot for it if it's covered with annotations and notes, especially like Amazon as they would want a percentage of the price you sell it for.

    You could put it on Ebay - some people might appreciate the annotations because they're lazy to do with it themselves.

    I never throw my books away just because I like the nostalgic feeling of looking back at it. But, are there any younger people in your family or friends' family that might be studying the novel in the upcoming years? You should find out and maybe sell it onto them?

    Thanks for the reply. I've asked my brother if he will study it but he doesn't. I'll look into maybe putting it on Ebay
