Used Books = Big Savings
Used textbooks mean great savings for UMaine students, so we make it a point to stock a huge inventory
of used books each semester! Our used textbooks are previously owned books that are in good condition.
We do not intentionally sell damaged or heavily marked books.

We get most of our used books by purchasing them back from UMaine students during Buyback, putting cash
back into their pockets. Textbook Buyback earns students up to 50% of new book prices on many titles
each semester! Used books + Buyback = your most economical option!
