Have you?

www.cheapbooks.com

I'm wondering how reliable this is. I figured since I graduate in another month and a half and I have around 20-30 college books that I know I'm not going to use.....I would just sell them.

Yeah, but I did it on paperbackswap and half.com.

I used half.com and ebay a bit back in the day, but that's it. And you rarely got value for the books - especially if there's a new edition out.

Yeah...I know i'm not going to get much....but if I get anything I'll be happy. I'm not going to use the books and I'd rather not have them just collecting dust in my garage.

sell them even a couple bucks cheaper than other people, and make sure they are on the market weeks before the semester starts.. the people that want deals will search sooner..

i've used ebay, and i believe some friends used amazon perhaps?



what are you majoring in?

I also use half.com for buying and selling books. You're going to have a much larger customer base than the link in OP.

The link in the OP is for a site that lists companies that will buy the books from you. It's not selling them to individual people like Half.com.

Web Design and Multimedia. The books that I'm looking to sell are from all of my general classes. I'm keeping a majority of the design books.

No, but I bought books off half.com when I was still in school.

I used half.com too. As stated above, you don't get the same value for your books that you paid, but you sure do get a hell of a lot more than the bookstore offers.
