    Looking for anyone that recycles books around SE Wisconsin

    Hi gang,



    Been a while since I posted on here! But I am currently selling a lot of books on Amazon. I get them from Goodwill's around me, but I'm looking to increase my volume by potentially buying gay-lords from family owned thrift stores and recycling centers. Then I thought I'd make a post on here to see if there is anyone around SE Wisconsin, and the northern part of Illinois that recycles books.

    Please feel free to message me on here to discuss this into more detail!!!

    Thanks fore checking this out!
    -Tom

    Tom,

    I can't help with your request, but just a question: What kind of books are you selling? I noticed that you don't specify what you are looking for, other than "books". And lots of them, it sounds like.

    Care to expand a little on what you sell? I'm sure some of us scrappers come across caches of books from time to time!

    Thanks,
    Jon.

    Should of went a bit more in to detail! But, nonfiction is best for reselling. Religion in particular is really good. As of right now I have a little over 700 books sitting in a lot of Amazon warehouses and about 100 sitting on a shelving rack that I ship myself. Although that may be a lot to some, I know this one guy that gets books by the semi full and has a whole warehouse of books that he sells.

    You should really consider a buyers thread. You get 1 with a paid membership to the scrap room. Offers to buy on the public forum usually get removed.

    I believe he is looking for ideas of where to buy from and not soliciting to buy from board members per se

    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    I agree with DirectRecycle, but a buyer's thread may be a good idea here. I'm not aware of anybody here who buys books. May be a good niche for you....
