CampusBookHound Launches Website for Textbook Sales

CampusBookHound helps students save more and spend less on textbooks.


Ellicott City, MD – November 11, 2011

Freedom to set your price on textbooks!CampusBookHound announced the official launch of their new website designed to let college students buy and sell textbooks locally. The website, http://www.CampusBookHound.com, is an online marketplace for textbook sales with the bidding power of online auction websites and the local accessibility of online ad websites. This exciting new website is strategically positioned to become the central place where students go to buy and sell their textbooks each semester.

CampusBookHound is the brainchild of University of Maryland and Rutgers University alumni led by Senior Executive, Vinodhini Guhesan. When asked about the motivating factor behind creating http://www.CampusBookHound.com, Guhesan responded, “With the cost of higher education rising each year and the recent economic downturn, students have been forced to come up with creative ways to save money. We wanted to create a site that caters to college students nationwide.”

Textbook buy-back programs are designed to make money for the bookstores not the students. The average cost for a textbook is between $75-$100 and the buy-back programs often buy the book back for a fraction of the original cost, only to turn around and sell the book to the next student for a profit. These programs are really not designed to help the students retain the value of their book. “CampusBookHound is here to change the textbook market by putting the money where it belongs, in the hands of the students. By allowing students to sell their book for the price that they set, bid on the books that they want for a price that’s better than the bookstore, and pick books up locally, we give students the power to control the textbook market.”

How much will it cost you to list your books at CampusBookHound? Students can list a textbook for just ONE DOLLAR! There are no hidden fees or hidden charges. “We want to put students first! We built a service that helps students get the money they deserve for their books so that they can stretch each dollar a little further. We were once college students too so we know that every dollar counts and we hope that CampusBookHound will be the solution you’re looking for.”

About CampusBookHound:

CampusBookHound (http://www.CampusBookHound.com) was started in 2011 by University of Maryland and Rutgers University alumni in order to give college students a marketplace to buy and sell textbooks locally. We know first-hand how much students spend on textbooks each semester. After you finish the course, you often have to sell the books back to the same bookstore you bought them from for a fraction of the price you paid for them.

We have been in your shoes! We know that college students need to save money wherever they can. We created CampusBookHound so students have an inexpensive option to buy the books they need for their classes each semester and sell them for what they are really worth.

CampusBookHound is a service developed and maintained by SecureStax, Inc. (http://www.SecureStax.com)
