Looking for a bookstore....

that buys old books. I have some books from the 30's, 40's and up that I am looking to sell. Does anybody know a place that buys books like this? I have been looking up some of the titles and they are not too expensive but I can make a buck. I would rather sell them as a lot then list close to 60 books on Fleabay.

People take these things too seriously!

Nevermind, they only pay .50 to 1.00. These books are worth more than that.

Up A Tree, 1961
Swings & Things, 1965

All the books are hardcovers and most of them have the dust jackets.

javio what edition is the alice in wonderland?
and please pm me your asking price.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.
