. Plus who are these people selling it for so low like .50 i mean come on if you want to get rid of a book for such a low price give it to the libery for free instead. what can i do to get money for a book thats the question? i want at least $6 for each book is that having too high of an expectation.

Well, you see, $13 is cheap. Very cheap. In order to pull someone away from buying it new, the used price must be much lower. You won't get $6 each except at maybe a garage sale to unsuspecting consumers. Sorry

Amazon and ebay are a cesspool of failure when it comes to selling a lot of more 'popularized' items that also happen not to be in scarce supply. The few of the popularized thing, say like a Mario game or a rare comic book will get more because there's a less amount in a certain quality grade and a higher demand for said item. Hellsing manga is common and there's most places locally that are book shops that'll sell manga for 1/2 price ($4-5) so then online has to compete with that considering shipping so you get hosed.

Try craigslist, say oh 3 for $10 and you could do it.

impossible with the current sellers

just save it and about 10 years it will probably be worth a lot of money

don't even bother trying to make a profit from ebay even if you managed to sell it for a good price their BS final sale fees just take it right back! only use ebay to just get rid of stuff like a yard/garage sale or to only buy stuff

You can't really call it a profit if you can't even recoup what you paid for them.
