Whatever your reasons We Buy Books is a simple and hassle free way to sell textbooks for some much needed extra cash to put towards freshers week, rent or this semester’s reading material.

Calling all students!

Textbooks aren’t cheap and in most cases you’ll only need them for a limited period of time before you’re required to overhaul your studying material and invest in a new collection of books.

“It’s estimated the average student will spend almost £100 per semester on textbooks, almost £1000 over a 3 year degree.”

So wouldn’t it be great to make some money back from the textbooks you no longer require? That’s where WeBuyBooks comes in handy…
