"Since forever, college students have done the trade-in dance at the beginning and end of semesters to exchange unwanted textbooks for cash. Usually that cash goes back to the bookstore for the next round of textbooks (or a bit of end-of-semester partying), but it's a tried-and-true way of getting at least a few cents back on your hard-earned dollars."
Anything to break the monopolistic hold college bookstores have on textbook buy backs and you have my vote! Perhaps something like this, if it gets enough use, will at least get you more for your barely used textbooks. Of course, the best thing would be to have the textbooks you need digitized so you can have them on an iPad or other tablet, or even your laptop. Carrying around heavy textbooks is so 2010 don't you think?
