About Used Books

Used books range in quality from a pristine book owned only once before by a student who treated it with care, to a book that has been owned by several students and is comfortably worn with creased pages and highlighting. A used book might have any of the following characteristics:

  • Notes written in the margins
  • Highlighting from a little to a lot
  • Typical wear and tear
  • Rounded corners
  • Scrapes and scratches
  • Faded cover art
  • Creased pages
