Everyone has their favourite classic children’s books they just can’t bear to part with - but did you ever imagine yours could make you some serious money?
If you’re looking to have a proper refresh this year, then you might just be tempted to go through your bookshelves and stick to your best eReader instead. After all, bookworms may love seeking out the best books of the year to race through, but it’s all too easy to find run out of space for physical copies. Especially when there are always some much-loved titles you can’t imagine ever getting rid of.
For many of us, these are nostalgic books from our childhoods and it seems it pays to be careful with what you throw away. Many classic children’s books not only hold huge sentimental value but could be worth thousands!
New research from leading UK distance learning provider, Oxbridge, has discovered some of the most valuable books that are likely to be hiding in your collection.
