Buying cheap used textbooks not only helps your wallet, but it also helps save trees. It has been estimated that 4 million trees are cut down a year to print new textbooks. This year, if you have the choice to buy a new or used textbook, make sure to grab the used one!

The ValoreBooks.com Marketplace has over 10,000 booksellers that resell used books to college students across the country.  ValoreBooks.com helps prevent millions of used textbooks find new customers instead of finding landfills across the country! The used textbook industry allows students to Save Green in two ways: Save Cash, and Save Trees.

Here are a few helpful tips that you should know when you are looking to buy cheap textbooks.

  • There are many variations of each textbook, and searching by a textbook ISBN will give you exactly what you need. If you do not have an ISBN, you can search by title and author at our Advanced Book Search.
