Sell Textbooks

Sell textbooks online with Zapper

While studying at school, university or professionally, you’re bound to have spent countless hours pouring meticulously over textbooks; or at least some of you may have. Regardless of your academic tendencies, throughout our lives we seem to end up accumulating loads of old textbooks that we no longer use; presumably we’ve downloaded the entirety of the books knowledge into our enormous brains.

Yet, when it comes to what do with the textbook when we’re done with them, we seem to act irrationally. Generally, one of a few possibilities will occur; they’re put in an attic, under the sofa or on a dusty shelf, never to be touched again by any mortal being. Alternatively, maybe they’ve caused you so much grief, that you burn them and dance around the flames. However, whilst these methods maybe ‘common’, are they rational? Zapper suggests you sell your textbooks to us, and make a handy bit of cash whilst doing so!
