The prices paid for these titles is based on current market value. You will receive the best price for your books if you wait to sell them during finals week. Books not being used in the upcoming semester are purchased at the current wholesale value.
  • Water or binding damaged books (loose or missing pages) are not accepted and will be disposed of
