Depends upon book. Paperbacks are about 20p each at our local car booty.
Postage will be about £2 for a paperback methinks.

You can get books new from £3.99 at the local supermarkwt
Not when you can get excellent books in Pilgrims hospice book shop some like new for 50p---£2.00.

Donate them to a good charity.:thumbsup::):gift::santa:
Some hard back books might be £4 or more to send in post,think if it's really heavy and like bigger,like say the size of something like Guiness Book of Records,they really huge books,so if really thick too,thats when it could start costing more.
Depending where you sell at,you may face limits on how much postage the maximum you can charge,I been selling a few kids books and maximum I can charge is £2.75,luckily this been enough,Amazon marketplace as their own set prices too.

Can't really advise what to sell your books for as some may fetch more than others,some you might not even get 1p and postage for,books vary.
Did you write the book:thinking:
As above, postage varys and price you can ask really does tend to depend on the title, and the condition.
try auction sites i bought a few there- if really good and popular
Thanks for the replies.
I've over 100 books, It would be nice to get something for them..

There all in good condition.

None of those are jumping off the page as overly valuable.

Crime thriller paperbacks tend to stick around the 50p-£2 in charity shops, after postage it probably isnt worth selling unless in bulk using a cheap courier.
Might be worth highlighting any first edition hardbacks, if in good nick that'll add a small premium.
