I guess the value of a book depends on the person wanting it.  I know that I have seen paperback Fun with Dick and Jane Books in used bookstores and on Half.com for about 75 cents.  You can list them on here by using the No ISBN option and describing them yourself.  Never heard of the other book.

You can check abebooks.com and see what online used bookstores are selling the book for.  That's what I usually do--and most of them aren't selling for much.  A search on ebay for completed items sometimes helps as well.
