By the end of the semester, when we start reminding you to sell us your used textbooks for the most cash, you’ve heard it a million times: Keep your textbooks in good condition. It’s obvious why! We don’t buy back books in bad shape because other students can’t use them. And reusing textbooks to save students cash is what Textbooks.com is all about.
But sometimes students ignore that advice all semester and then attempt to sell textbooks that could be described as “good condition” only with the addendum “for being run through an industrial washing machine”.
For your pleasure, our textbook buyback tip list and some of this year’s cardinal offenders:
One scrubby theology book isn’t enough to shake our faith in buyback…
…but two? IT MUST BE A SIGN.
This student clearly preferred splatter-painting over practicing idioms.
“Used”? No way!!! Never would have guessed.
Naked… tsk tsk. Only textbooks dressed decently are eligible for cash back.
Is that doodle guy tossing a Frisbee? Save your skills for the quad, bro.
Please be coffee. Please.
Speaking of, coffee works best when it’s poured into your mouth.
Pull the plug on this one, nurse.
This isn’t exactly what we mean by “pack your buyback shipment securely” but, hey.
Was this textbook chewing on a ballpoint pen?
Polluted cityscape? Aztec-inspired wallpaper? You’ll have to ask the artist.
This is the handwriting of someone progressively losing their grip on reality.
