Sell a book? Why? They need to be shared and loved. Reducing their value to dollars and cents is ridiculous.

I've usually given my old books to friends or donated them to libraries. Now I collect ebooks instead of paperback.

I've sold and donated quite a few. I really don't like owning things I don't need (anymore).

No I've never done that.

I have indeed sold a few books online. You can't deny it's a good way to make some money. However, I have donated plenty of books as well. It's completely useless to have books that could be read by others!

I have sold many many books. Once I've read them, they deserve another good home.

That's my worst nightmare, having to sell my books because of abject poverty 😱 But yeah, if the books were written by me, I would love to sell them and sell more of them
