I’ve been an Alibris customer for about a year now. I was looking for a specific book., “The Last Canadian” - one of those books you have to read in elementary school. It’s about one last Canadian man who manages to survive a global plague. I’m a post-apocalyptic fiction geek. It was easily obtained on Alibris, and for a song. OF course, I can’t find the book again anywhere ;-)
Over the Christmas holidays, I decided to take a hard look at my library, and realized that I needed to cull, in order to allow for room for more books :-) I joined the Alibris Seller hub, and enlisted the assistance from the chickadees to read out ISBN numbers, which i then plugged into Alibris to create my inventory. 184 books later, and I’m about 1/2 done. The Alibris Sellers Hub matches what you’ve got to sell with what other folks are looking for, and voila! Already I’ve made one sale! You can set your prices, choose the quality characteristics of your materials and the ISBN number takes care of the rest of the details! I only had a handful of books where the ISBN number couldn’t be found, and Alibris still lets you add to your collection, it’s just a bit more manual.
I think I’m addicted - I check the Hub every morning to see if anything has sold, and I am also adding more and more books to the wishlist, to fill in the soon-to-be empty shelves in the library! If you are falling out of love with Chapters or Amazon, I HIGHLY recommend giving Alibris a read. You never know what you might find!!!
