Why didn’t you buy back my textbook?

We only buy back titles that have a value with one of our wholesalers or will be used for the upcoming semester. Books must be in an acceptable condition and not damaged. The main types of damage we see and reject purchasing books for are: water damage (crinkly pages, warped book), stains, torn/ripped covers or pages, broken binding, and excessive writing or highlighting (to the degree that some text is unreadable).

If a book is damaged and/or not priced from one of our wholesalers, we would be glad to take the book from you so it can be donated to Better World Books.
