We only buy back books from JMU students, faculty, or staff. Books must be in resalable condition. (Missing pages, water damage, excessive highlighting, the answers written in, a broken binding, etc. are not acceptable buyback conditions.)

Course Materials Orders:

If an instructor has requested your textbook for next term, then the value increases. Books falling into this category may be worth anywhere from 30% to 50% of the original purchase price. Generally speaking, textbooks will be purchased until we reach our shelf stock limit.

Overstocks and Current Editions Not Being Used on Campus:

If we have reached our limit on a particular title for next term, or if your book has not been requested for next term and is a current edition, we may still purchase it. The CASH back you will receive is based on various criteria including the national demand and the needs of other bookstores.
