    Has anyone had much success selling books on ebay? If so what's been your general approach? What are your favorite types of sources for finding profitable books?

    I once found a luxury limited edition oversized book in Goodwill for $4, and was later forced to sell it online (at Amazon) for over $100 due to being dirt poor at the time. Damn, I wish I still had that book, and it's actual worth is anything from $20 to $500. I tried repurchasing it on Ebay for $20 but missed the auction by a day.

    Books are a pain to sell on Ebay because you have to photograph them, list edition and so forth, and although they sell better than most used clothing, they aren't as easily moved as video games or tarot cards. I wouldn't try to flip books on Ebay. Any books I've sold haven't sold for their full worth unless you have the patience to wait over a year for a buyer.
