We Buy Books provided us with their statistics from August 2022. They show that during these times of economic hardship the people are more often cleaning out and cashing in their books. This could be due to issues with the rising cost of living, or the added costs associated with having children in the home.

We wrapped our books with care and then printed the contents list that We Buy Books creates for you – then popped into the box together with the books, and then secured the package with heavy strong tape to ensure that it would not break.

The money was deposited in our account just a couple of days after the package was collected. It was like seeing our clean bookshelves and not seeing a plethora of books stuffed into them.
