Secondhand / Pre-used Books For Sale

My Old Books for Sale

I'm moving house to a small apartment and so, reluctantly, getting rid of a lot of books, old friends if you like, that gave me pleasure when I was a teenager and in my twenties; I'm now in my seventies.


They are a mixture of detective novels, thrillers, westerns, science fiction, classics and pretty well anything else I could get hold of. 

Most are in a used, but readable condition. Some have been read just once, others, multiple times. And most of them, not all, are paperbacks - I didn't have a lot of cash available then

(I still haven't).


I'm really looking for 'good homes' for them.


The prices I've set are about the average I've seen on eBay, some higher, some lower.


Post and packing depends on where you live; to the UK a single paperback of about

250grams costs 

5€ for the packing and postage; to the USA this is 8€. 

For a lot of two paperbacks; UK 6€ and the USA 9·50€


I give an estimated price to the UK and USA on each hardback book individually.

For P&P to other countries, please contact me at markp@markpatrick.net

or DM me on Twitter @MarkPAuthor.
