Recently I was contacted by Nick to take a look around at a new website, Glyde, were I can buy, sell and organize books, cds, dvds and video games. I trade on a couple of used books websites already so at first I thought I wouldn't be interested but once I got to looking around I decided to give it a try.

What's really unique about Glyde is that I can sell any type of media in one place. Not only did I list some used video games we no longer played but I had quite a few books that I had posted on the sites I trade on that had yet to be requested. Previously I had tried to sell them on craiglist with no luck and for such a small sale the ebay & paypal fees wouldn't be worth the hassle.

I quickly made a sale and all I had to do was wait for my prepaid envelope to arrive and drop the book in the mail. Once the book was delivered to the buyer my account was credited with real cash, not credits!

You can make a withdrawal at anytime but I chose to use my cash to feed my addiction and I ordered a book that I've had my eye on for a while. I purchased the book at $2.25 when the lowest price I found on Amazon was $4.49. It arrived quickly in excellent condition. What a deal.

Nick has graciously offered my Reading With Monie visitors a FREE BOOK. If you sign up for your free Glyde account by May 13th using the code "monie" after you purchase your first book, Nick will rebate the purchase price to your account within 24 hours.

I hope you find something good to read and happy selling!!

This sounds very interesting! I use several trade sites also and sell some used books. I'm definitely checking it out. Thanks for telling us about this.
