CampusBookHound – Changing the way students buy and sell textbooks!

November 19, 2011 Leave a comment

We created CampusBookHound to change the way students buy and sell textbooks.

The Problem:
At the end of each semester, students across the nation are faced with the same challenge – “where do I sell my used textbooks?” The University bookstore buys the textbooks for one-third of the purchase price. The online sites take your book away for less than a third of the original price. The student looses most of the value of the book in three months of use. On the buying side, the same textbook shows up at two-thirds of the buy-back price. So the buyers are locked into buying at high prices. The students loose the value of their textbooks in both cases. CampusBookHound is here to change that.

The Solution:

CampusBookHound gives you the freedom to sell books for the price you want and buy them for the best deal possible. Sellers set the price, so you know you will get the most for your books, better than the bookstore’s buy-back prices. Buyers bid on books at prices below the bookstore. Both the seller and the buyer get the best of both worlds. Both the buyer and seller retain most of their value on the textbook.

Now the big question is…

What does it cost to list a textbook on CampusBookHound?
Sellers can list their book for One-Dollar! No hidden fees or surprises! It’s that simple, list your book for a dollar and retain the value of what you paid for in your textbook!

We hope that through this service, we can change the way textbooks are bought and sold across the Universities nationwide. At CampusBookHound, we put students first and help them save more and spend less on textbooks! Visit us at to learn more about how you can be a part of this change.
