Today I’d like to present my new company. Its name is Newland Second-hand Books. I am a sole trader. I got/ patented the idea of business when I saw thousands of books were sold for scrap when students graduated from college. I decided to open a second-hand bookstore on my university website. I advertised on the bulletin board to attract those who have books to sell and those who want to buy books cheaply.

At first I only deal in text books, then , I expanded to fiction, biographies and more. Last year I reaped a profit of 10,000 yuan, which was a notable sum considering that I was only a second-year student in the university. Currently I have one employee who helps with the delivery. I am thinking of expanding to other second- hand items and employ more people. The current value of my company is Protect environment, Created harmony society.
