  • Closed Accounts Posts: 37 Hino

    Did someone say you can sell your books back to the SU or something.

    Loads of books needed to be got rid of!!!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,195 ✭✭✭✭Michellenman

    You can sell them through the second hand book shop in the SU building. You decide what books you want to sell, set the price yourself and then you're given a ticket (which you need to keep!). The book is put on the shelves there and when it's sold the Bookshop will contact you and give you the money. You don't get any money until the book has been sold. They're selling the book on your behalf, you're not selling it to them and then they sell it on. They just act as a middle man.
