Tip for authors: try Powell’s Books

From humble storefront beginnings in 1971 on a derelict corner of northwest Portland, Oregon, Powell’s Books has grown into one of the world’s great bookstores, with seven locations in the Portland metropolitan area, and one of the book world’s most successful dot-coms, serving customers worldwide.

Powell’s buy’s used books, and entire collections. This could be something to consider for overstocks you have, that you would like to move quickly. NOTE: They buy books they feel they can resell, offering approximately 25% (in cash) of the price they expect to realize for the books, or 30% in store credit (to be redeemed in store or online). Price is based upon desirability, market value, in-print price, condition, and current stock levels. They offer credit only (not cash) for books they buy online.
