We buy recent hardcover novels and pay cash.  Get an instant price quote by visiting We offer three simple steps:


Also, check out our earlier post on selling used fiction.  That post has example price quotes on some fiction novels. If we are not offering a quote on your books, here are some other ideas to sell used novels:

  • Some libraries may buy them. Most libraries have different days through out the year that you can buy and sell books.
  • Call around to some of your local used bookstores.  Many offer trade, and occasionally cash.
  • Try Craigslist or eBay, and sell a whole box at once.  This may especially work if you can group your novels by genre or author.
  • Host a garage sale.  You may be able to ask $0.50 for paperback and $1.00 for hardcovers.

As a last resort, you can always give them away to your local library, or a local charity such as Goodwill.  At least this gives you a tax deduction!

February 19, 2012

Beaverton, OR – February 14, 2012 – With over 35% of Americans regularly playing video games and the average gamer typically owning 10 games, there are hundreds of millions of video games scattered throughout the country. That also means that there are millions of neglected games that are collecting dust on living room shelves. What happens to these games that people no longer play? A newly launched website, gives gamers the option of selling video games online for cash.

They can also print free shipping labels to send their games to the GameRevive warehouse in Beaverton, OR. Once the company receives and inspects the games, payment is issued within one business day. Payment is made in the form of a mailed check or a PayPal electronic deposit.

Unlike many current video game buyback and trade in options, the entire buyback process takes place online. Gamers no longer need to make a trip to a brick-and-mortar store to sell or trade in their games.

“We know that many people have games that they simply don’t need anymore.” said Jim Smith, CEO and President of “We offer a quick and convenient buyback process that can be completed in the comfort of our customers’ homes.

The entire process takes place online, pays out cash, and helps gamers recover some of the initial purchase price of their video games.
