What is Textbook Sharing?
Textbook sharing is a revolutionary new way of thinking about your books.
The idea is to stop seeing your books as an inevitable expense, and start seeing them as a literal asset.
It might sound crazy to you, but bookstores have grown rich on this very idea.
Since 1978, college textbook prices have increased 812%*, a greater rate than regular books, tuition, and even inflation. Meanwhile university bookstores and textbook publishers are thriving off struggling college students like you. Economists are calling them the Textbook Cartel.
Until now, your options have been limited to selling them at the bookstore, online, or to a friend.
Either way, you're likely to get back less than half of what you spent.
It's time to turn over a new leaf.
We've developed a platform that helps you find the books you need,
share the books you don't, and save money every step of the way.
Each time someone new pays to use your book you get a portion of the profits.
Instead of handing your books over to the university bookstore or selling them online for less than half their worth, you could make up to 90% of your money back by sharing it with other students.
Whoever shares it after you makes a cut of the profit too, so everyone has an incentive to keep your books ready for resale.
Stop letting bookstore moguls grow fat on your hard-earned dollars. You're smarter than that.
