depending on what they are you may want to try craigslist

I've also sold many books on Amazon marketplace and ebay but of course there's a hefty commission with those two

Locally, Ed McKay.

Half.com on the internet. I have never sold but I have bought some books from there a few years ago.

I agree with Toot - Nice Price books is the place in the Chapel Hill / Carrboro area.

As said above, it depends on what kind of books you are selling.
If you are trying to get rid of best-sellers, try local used book stores or Craigs List.

If you are trying to sell a lot of books, that are less well known, try Half.com.
I've sold a lot of books there, including a bunch of 10+ year old collage text books to students who needed alternative study aids.
I liked them as it was very easy. You entered the ISBN, looked at the competition to gauge your own selling price, then entered your own book's condition and selling price. That's it. The descriptions are all pre-entered. And since shipping costs are also pre-determined, you don't have to fight against sellers who can afford to undercut you by charging triple shipping.

Ebay is pretty easy to sell used books also. Just put in the ISBN number and it will display a picture for you (if found). All you have to do is put in the condition.

I collect out of print books from my childhood (70's/early 80's) and half.com was a good resource, as was ebay.

Sad to see that Nice Price Books in Carrboro is closing. The Durham and Raleigh locations will continue.
