How to Start Selling Your Books

Hoot Book Revival goes to work for you by creating a platform that connects homeschoolers across the nation with each other in order to expedite the buying and selling of used educational materials. Read more about the 3 R's of Hoot Book Revival (Relate, Revive and Relax) below.

Rescue your books from that dusty shelf!

We provide you with a platform to give your used books new life– all while putting some cash back into your pocket. Education books are expensive! So dust off those dusty, unread books and revive them. We know you loved them dearly and are sad to see them go (or you hated them with a passion and couldn’t be happier to see them off your shelf–math, I’m looking at you), but there are people out there who might not know the joy of that book. Go share!


So how do you start selling? 

  • To start selling your books you’ll need to make an account with us. You can do this by either clicking on the “Login + Register” button on the top right of your screen, or click the link below. Once on that screen click the button that says “Create a new Account”. To make an account you’ll need to create a password and have a valid email address.
  • Check the little box that says “Have something to sell? Set Up Your Bookshop!” on the registration page.
    • Did you miss that step when you signed up? No worries, just navigate to your buyer’s dashboard and select the button in the bottom right that says, “Bookstore signup“.
