I love using my local library to read books for free.
But sometimes I just like owning books. When I splurge on books, I try to get the best deal possible. One of the best places to buy books are at used book sales.
Many non-profit groups (such as libraries) hold these used book sales as fundraisers. The books are donated to them, they sell them, and use the proceeds to support their cause. Most used book sales charge anywhere from 10 cents to $3 per book. Some sales will even have a $1-a-bag deals! It’s a great way to get a lot of books for a little bit of money and feel good about helping people in your community.
And now, finding those sales is even easier!
Check out Book Sale Manager – a new site that allows you to search for non-profit used book sales in your area. The site is free and easy to use – You can search by city, state, or zip code. You can also find non-profit organizations that have used book stores in your area, too.
It’s also free to list a used book sale at Book Sale Manager. So if your library or other non-profit organization is holding a used book sale, you’ll have one more free way to publicize your event.
