    I've got loads of books to sell, including a-level textbooks and was just wondering where the best place would be to sell them? amazon.co.uk or ebay? do people actually buy second-hand books online?

    Thanks

    I buy second hand books from amazon all the time (not textbooks usually though). They're usually reasonable quality and much cheaper than the new copies.

    ebay would probably be better. THe auctions last for 9 days so you're more likely to get money quicker - I think amazon auctions last for 60 days. Plus you have to give lots more money to amazon when you sell the book than you do to ebay.

    I've just bought some of my textbooks for uni on e-bay.

    Got 2 textbooks for £11.00 - whereas they're about £21 each in the shops.

    Well, it may be hundreds of peoples burning ambition to achieve an E in gcse english. In fact looking at many 16 year olds I should think they will need as much help as possible getting just that
