Obvious truth as it may be, it always bears repeating—college is costly.

Although tuition is always the first and foremost expense everyone worries about, the price of college books continues on an endless uphill climb. Specifically, college textbook prices have increased by over 1,000% since the 1970s.

Sadly enough, most college books have a short utility timespan. After fulfilling their purpose, their fate will likely be that of a dust collector on a bookshelf or in a forgotten drawer. Unless, of course, you SELL them.

Some sites match you with individual buyers, and others match you with buyback vendors. Let’s explore those options and learn more about the places that buy books. 

Amazon and Chegg used to buy used textbooks and other books, but neither offers this option any longer. Instead, Chegg sends you to another brand to sell your books, and Amazon only allows you to sell books as an Amazon seller, which takes much more work and incurs many fees.

Is this something you face at the end of each semester?

“I feel really bad just throwing my textbooks away knowing they could help someone, but in most of them there is at least a bit of writing for example I highlighted topics that were in the advanced information for science and sometimes I ticked off practice questions that I did. Is there any place that accepts books like this or do they have to be super new to be sold?”

For those asking “How much do college textbooks cost?” and “Why are textbooks so expensive?” we have the following shocking statistics. According to the data from College Board, college textbooks and materials cost more than $1,200 per year. That’s a lot of cash for books you’ll never use after you finish that class!

That’s not the only alarming statistic. With textbooks costing an average of $105.37 each, it’s no wonder why college students would rather get a lower grade in a class than shovel over hundreds of dollars every school year. The price of textbooks has mimicked the rise in tuition over the past couple of decades. Between 1977 and 2015, textbook costs have risen about 1,041%.

The high cost of college textbooks remains one of the major student problems and a significant expense alongside tuition and accommodation. With prices of some new textbook copies reaching several hundred dollars, not every student is capable of affording them.

Today, we’ve decided to look closer at how the textbook industry works and try to understand why textbook costs are so high and how they influence student life and decisions. And more importantly, we wanted to show how to leverage more affordable options like buying used books or renting textbooks (of course, with the discontinuation of Amazon rent textbooks program, many students will have to adapt and look for other rental alternatives).
