I remember when I was in college, one of the things I dreaded the most at the start or end of a semester was buying my new books and selling my old ones.  Not only were they painfully expensive, but there was the hassle of standing in the winding lines at the bookstore to purchase books or to see how much money I could get back for my used books.  Now that our society is becoming more tech-savy, I think more and more schools are moving towards e-books rather than the good old-fashioned textbooks.  However, if you are one of the lucky students who still use textbooks or maybe you are a book collector who wants to unload some of your treasures online, then SellYourBook is a wonderful app for you!

SellYourBook is a free app that takes the hassle out of selling used books.  It is fast and easy to use and it will save you time and make you money!  All you need to do is simply scan (or manually type in) the ISBN code on the back of your book with your mobile device.  SellYourBook will pull up several online stores and what amount they will buy-back your book for.  Most of these online stores will also provide you with a pre-paid shipping label that you can print off as well.  All you need to do is select which store you want to sell to, print off the shipping label, throw your books in a box and within a few weeks your money will be in your hot little hand.

I would have loved to have had an app like this when I was a student.  The convenience of selling your used books from the comfort of your home is wonderful.  This app is free and one that I would recommend any college student downloads.  While I am not a college student anymore, I am an avid reader and I am pretty sure I have several books cluttering up my bookshelves that I could sell.  I can’t wait to use this app and make a few extra bucks!
