Do you think these would sell?

I went through a phase of buying 'tear jerker' books (stories of abuse and neglect etc) and I now have tons of them that I want rid of.

I've tried listing them on ebay but I've only sold a couple...looked on amazon and don't like the look of it on there, hundreds of people trying to sell the same book for 10p etc...

So I thought about selling, say 3 or 4 books as a package, like 3 'tear-jerkers' for £5 or something? do you think this will help get rid of them or am I wasting ebay fees?

If you sell the book on amazon, you don't have to pay listing fees, and you get the postage costs, of nearly £2 I think, per book.

But do books actually sell on there? I've looked for the books I'm selling and there are hundreds of the same, all listed for daft prices like 10p etc...

If there are hundreds on amazon then it's unlikely they will sell fast. (if at all)

In my experience the best way would be to group them into authors if possible. You could try your package idea, who knows! Try to use good key words in the title and group them by weighing and working out the p&p so that it doesn't cost too much eg - 4 books at £3 p&p is better than 5 books at £5 p&p (if one books takes you to the next pricing level) hope this makes sense.

I tried selling mine, with limited success. Maybe try on here, in the For Sale section? or try a swapshop site
