How should i go about selling these?

i have 5 or 6 boxes of Mangas' in my closet with at least 50 books in each one and a bookshelf full of books (mangas') also....i have no idea how to go about selling them though and i need the extra money to buy diapers and stuff .i was thinking i could do a yard sale but no one around here really reads these kinds of comics i was also thinking i could price them at $5 or $6 since theve been read through....and usually you buy them at  the store for $10

heres that kinda books im talking about if some of you mamas dont know what mangas are sorry if the pictures big(and the mess on the shelf lol)

  • Craigslist, ebay or used book store?

  • eBay. Stuff like that has value, but only to certain people. EBay is like a giant yard sale. Take a look at completed auctions to see what other people are paying. To make it easier (but less money overall), sell it by series of books. If you want to do a good job (make more money) go to the library & get one of the books about selling on eBay. Make sure that you figure out your shipping costs. It should be pretty cheap with media mail. You do want to take decent photos.

  • I would suggest Craigslist or eBay to get the best prices for something like that. If you use Craigslist, make sure you meet the buyer some place safe (in front of busy well lit grocery store or something like that), don't have them come to your house.

  • I think Ebay or go on to a comic book website, to make sure that you don't have anything worth like $10,000 or something!

  • EBay is probably your best bet. Some of the bidding wars can get crazy.

  • i would say Ebay is your best bet. Just check on what they are valued for so you get your money out of them. Good Luck!!
