Selling Textbooks - - What to Do with Your Old College Books
What to Do with Your Old College Books
An average college student has a constant need for new books every semester. This leads to a
large number of college textbooks to be stowed away forgotten and left to collect dust. Year
after year, many books end up going to a waste. To add, most of them even come at unfriendly
prices. It is quite disappointing to think that one just spent a hefty sum of cash on something
that is only good for roughly half a year or so. What is the best thing to do with old college
textbooks? Is there any way to keep them from going to a waste? Should every unused textbook
out there suffer being left in the dark?
In actuality, these books do not have to be hidden away until they are all worn out and musty.
Instead of keeping them in, you can donate them to libraries so that whoever might need your
old college textbooks can find them easily. There will always be someone out there who will
surely put those old books to good use. Or if you want to make some cash out of them, you can
rent or sell them to your friends or to other students. But before you do that, you have to
evaluate the quality of your books. It is important that you check for some damages, and signs
of wear and tear before you put them up for rent or for sale. Aside from their original price, the
current condition of the books also matters. They could be categorized as good-as-new to mint
condition to slightly used to slightly worn to worn, yet still useable.
There are many ways to let others know that you are selling textbooks. You can advertise
around your campus and share the information with your friends, colleagues and schoolmates.
Another college student like you is certain to need them or at least know someone who does.
If you are thinking of putting them up online, there are many websites that cater to buying and
selling used textbooks. One of them would be University Exchange. This website is made by
college students for their fellow college students. You can sell your used textbooks here or look
for the ones that your professors require you to use. The site has an optimized search engine
that makes searching for books easier. You can browse by titles, state, city, university, year
level and course for a more refined search. Apart from that, you can also sell you old school
supplies such as engineering essentials namely compasses, protractors and calculators, or art
materials like graded pencils, palettes and easels.
