I started this website because I realized during my first semester in college that the Bookstore rips you off. Posting flyers doesn't reach a lot of people and posting Books on the internet can be a hassle. The cheapest way to buy Books and the best way to sell a Book is student to student. It's a win-win situation. You're able to make more money than if you sold your Book back to the Bookstore and you're able to save more money than if you bought a Book at the Bookstore. What better way to find a buyer or seller than to go to a website with a database of people who are buying/selling Books at your school? That's why I started this website. Why wait?

I used Houston Book Exchange for the first time and had a great experience. I was able to sell three books and for a total of $70 more than I would have by selling my books at the bookstore! I recommend this website to all college students!-Sarah
