Factors that may affect whether or not your book is bought back:

  • The book must be requested by an instructor for the upcoming semester.
  • New editions released by the publisher
  • The condition of the book (missing pages, bindings damaged, missing covers, water damage, stains, mold or mildew).
  • The national demand for the book (this would effect whether the wholesaler buys it).
  • Current inventory in stock.
