Part-time job!

Love this app! I go out 2 or 3 times a week and scan used books at thrift stores, etc and have made enough money for a nice vacation! The app scans the book and then 10-20 different companies show the price they will pay. I pick the highest price, print off the free mailing label and box up the books. 2-3 weeks later I get a nice check in the mail. Now I am getting 5-10 checks a week. Takes a little time and work but a great part-time job working as my own boss and own hours! The app used to have problems but lately it’s working fine.

Why didn’t I know about this sooner!

I inherited a lot of books from my dad (he was an English professor) which have sitting around for years. Now that I’m trying to get rid of them, I really just wanted to do checks to see if any of them had any value before they got dumped. And this bookscouter app seems to be exactly what I need .

The only thing I wished the app could do is pull the “answer” from just imaging the ISBN # with the camera and not need the full barcode as that often doesn’t exist for older books and typing in the codes slows down the process greatly, but otherwise it has worked great and has helped ameliorate my fears that the majority of these books had any street value beyond certain collectors.

Older books

There should be an option for really old books (which is why I use this) and I have to bounce back and forth beween google image and this app. If there was an option to take a photo or type in search of a book other than the apps “scanning” for ISBN option would make this 10 stars!
