How to Improve Your Child's Reading Comprehension

Reading comprehension is a crucial reading skill that every child needs to develop. It is the process of understanding and interpreting text that has been read.

Earn Cash – Get Paid for Your Old Books!

I’ve just spent most of the day cleaning out the “junk room” so I can have a larger office space and I’m thrilled to have also made $85.77 for my effort!  I divided up all the books that I found into piles of those I wanted to keep and those I just didn’t need anymore, then typed all of the ISBN numbers in at Cash4Books to see what they were worth.  Of the 15 books that I typed in they offered to buy seven of them for a total of $85.77.  They pay for shipping and there are no fees, I even got a free upgrade to FedEx shipping since I have more than five books to send in.  You can request a check or to get paid through PayPal, which is the option I chose.

Another cool thing you can do with Cash4Books if you’ve got some spare time and would like to make a few extra bucks, is that you can use any cell phone with Internet access to look up what they’ll pay for books before you even buy them.  You could look up books you find at garage sales, flea markets and used book stores to see if they’d make you a profit.  They even have an Android app that allows you to simply scan a book’s ISBN to get an immediate quote.  As for me, I’m just happy to have been paid to clean out my new space 😉
