Textbooks and some fiction - which is better? I've got an account on both (although cocked up and opened a Pro account on Amazon accidentally has already cost me about £30!) and am an expert on eBay, but wonder which is better in terms if fees and selling?

Unless it's a really in demand title, I wouldn't bother, some
Books sell for 1p (plus postage) on Amazon.
People don't bother that much with books anymore and the minimum postage price (£2.80) put a lot of people off buying them.

I'd assume textbooks would sell better but you would need to check on both sites and see if they're actually worth selling.

If you've got a few books to sell you could try musicmagpie. They don't pay a lot per book but they collect from your door. I usually put my books in a bag until I've got quite a few and then sell in bulk

I've used music magpie and webuyanybooks, you can sell a big batch of books and they collect the box by courier. I wouldn't bother with Amazon or eBay unless the textbooks are worth a lot and are recent editions.
