Calling All Students!

Textbooks aren’t cheap and in most cases, you’ll only need them for a semester before you’ll have to overhaul your studying material and invest in a new collection of books.

It's estimated the average uni student will spend almost £100 per semester on textbooks, that's almost £1000 over a 3-year degree.

So it only makes sense to try and make some money back from the textbooks you no longer need. We’ll take all your old and unwanted textbooks off your hands, reuse and recycle them and pay you good money for them too.

It Pays to Look After Your Books

Now obviously you stand a better chance of selling textbooks for big bucks if they’re in good condition. If your textbooks look like they’ve been savaged by a pack of wild hounds or survived a nuclear blast then the chances are we can’t take them.

Don’t worry about annotations, we understand that from time to time you’ll want to write notes in your textbooks and we’re happy to accept items with underlining, highlighting, or annotations, as long as it’s not excessive and there are no crude words or pictures.

Item condition guidelines

We're unable to accept textbooks with the following defects:
  • Fire or smoke damage
  • Tears to the cover or pages
  • Significant damage or wear to the binding
  • Water damage
  • Badly stained
  • Missing, loose or torn pages

Our Recycling Pledge

You can sell books from hundreds of genres with We Buy Books, but sometimes, we receive books that don’t meet our condition guidelines, and if they don’t meet our criteria, we can’t accept them.

We pledge to recycle your books if we can’t accept them, so you can still feel positive because you’re contributing to a positive cause. And if you don’t want us to recycle your books, we’ll return them to you.
