HandMeBooks.com allows you to buy and sell books free of charge

Costly textbooks have long been a student issue. HandMeBooks.com is a free-of-charge and simple to use website for book exchange. Developed by one of our students, Michael Spencer, the website allows you to buy and sell books across all campuses at the University of Essex.

The process is very easy. You list the books that you want to sell, giving all the details like title, discipline, amazon price and your price! That is true, you can set up the price yourself. After that you just need to wait for someone to contact you. And everything is absolutely free.

Next time you need new books at the beginning of a term, head up to handmebooks.com and save some money.
