Sell Your Books To Me

Yes, I buy good quality second hand books, often offering far better prices than you’ll get at most book exchanges or second hand bookstores. However, I still need to buy at prices on which I can make a fair profit and that enable me to sell the books at competitive used market related prices to get my investment back as quickly as possible. If you require higher prices for your books, sell them out of hand straight to the public instead of to a dealer like me, with the disadvantage that you’re unlikely to get rid of large bundles of books quickly like that. Dealers serve a wider audience and can buy more books at a time for instant cash in your pocket.

I am very selective and will only purchase books that I have a realistic chance of reselling at a profit. Due to courier costs having to be factored in you’ll typically need to have at least 10 viable books for me to buy, depending on the type of books.


  • Contemporary Afrikaans Fiction
  • Military Non-Fiction (especially Anglo-Boer and Border War)
  • Historical/Political Non-Fiction
  • Africana Non-Fiction
  • Newer English fiction/thrillers


  • Books that are filthy, falling apart, have moisture damage, etc.
  • Old Afrikaans love stories
  • Old English paperbacks
  • Textbooks
  • Outdated books


  • Send me an email at with photos of the books you have to sell (or Whatsapp to 0769449955).
  • I make an offer, you either accept or counter
  • I send a courier to collect the books, or you can send them yourself (I pay all shipping fees, of course). I prefer Pudo due to speed and low cost.
  • Once I receive the goods in good order I’ll pay you. If you show yourself to be reliable and trustworthy, payment can in future be done upfront, but for at least the first deal between us I will only pay for the books once I receive them. I am a 100% reliable buyer and will point you towards public proof of that once we start dealing with each other if required.
