personally, i used to just make print outs and posted that shit all over the bathrooms..in front of urinals...inside bathroom stalls..places where everyone looks at when theyre in the bathroom hah

or id go to the classes i previously had and hustle the books to students taking that course

HEHE "how do i do?" so cutee

i agree w/ mike about half.com. also, maybe craigslist or local/college sites.. i'm not sure if it's available for you, but each of my classes has a "class mailing list".. a lot of students email that list, and whoever replies first gets the book. this is the quickest and most profitable way for me

i posted flyers all around campus, especially freshmen dorms & near the library. i figured it'd be a lot easier than going through ebay. Craigslist, Facebook Market, and Uloop also work well since it'll usually be someone who goes to your school and you can just meet up on campus

For my gen ed classes, I buy it cheap online and sell it at the bookstore. I make almost all my money back

You can also try abebooks.com

I hate how when you sell it back to the bookstore, they only offer you a third of the original... )(*)*)(*#@
