Welcome student.

How It Works

Our goal is to simplify your college textbook purchasing experience at the lowest possible cost to you. We are able to accomplish this by sourcing a wide variety of new and used textbook retailers. We can sell or rent you books over the counter or through this website. What this also means is that we can buy-back your used books throughout the year at great prices. You should give us a shot first for the best price!

So how does this work?! The following grid explains your available book sources and their differences.

 

  Delivery Return Cost Notes
In-Store

We have some IUPUI and Ivy Tech books on hand, which can be purchased immediately.

Books are available for purchase or rental. Rental books must be retured on the date specified on the rental receipt, and can be returned to the store in person.

Generally more expensive than Bookrenter or Skyo as a result of the cost of storing and maintaining inventory. Always guaranteed to be less expensive than IUPUI textbook store.

We are also able to accomdate pre orders and special orders, if contents are in stock.
