With the summer term coming to a close, many students will be finishing up their courses and looking forward to graduation eagerly. If this is the end of your time studying, you may well have a huge stack of textbooks sitting around. While they’ve been your faithful companions throughout the years of your course, they often end up shoved in a box once you leave university, gathering dust and memories. If you’re moving back home, or maybe going abroad for travelling or a graduate scheme, they’re often too bulky to pack and not worth lugging around.
Textbooks are investments when you start your course and throwing them away or burning them when you finish is a huge mistake (no matter how celebratory it may feel at the time!). It can be tempting to take them to the local charity shop or donate them to your university library. While these options are great ways of recycling your books, the end of university is often a time when you want to celebrate those hard years of work, and maybe strike out on a new adventure too. Having a little extra cash at this time is definitely appreciated while you look for your first new job, but many students overlook the cash that’s locked up inside their textbooks.
Why not let your textbooks have a new lease of life and sell them? You could take the time to list every item online, carefully photographing each book, writing detailed descriptions of every dog eared corner and scribbled note that you doodled during a lecture. Or, you can look at a much simpler service like WeBuyBooks.
