What is selling books like in Penang?

My secondhand bookstore lover friend tried to sell his precious books in good conditions, but secondhand bookstore owners offered only RM 10 for each. They don’t care too much about the value of the book. But Penang is still a better place to sell books in Malaysia. When you go to other parts of Malaysia such as Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, and Malacca, it’s even harder and the price is even lower than Penang. If you plan to sell books, I recommend you do it in Penang.
