Usually, when you sell your books or return rentals, you need to send the used books to the venue that provides buyback or rental services.

Experiencing Delivery Delays? Here We Explain Why

Experiencing Delivery Delays? Here We Explain Why 1

Have you wondered how textbooks appear at your doorstep? We would like to take the credit for all the hard work, but we cannot! BooksRun relies on several postal services to ship textbooks you’ve bought or rented. We process and prepare an order in our storage facilities, and then we hand it to a delivery company. These postal companies make sure that our textbook services are available to everyone across the country.

However, in recent weeks and months, we have all faced a nationwide problem of constant postal delays, no matter what company one uses (USPS, UPS, FedEx, and so on). It is a systemic failure that was only worsened by the ongoing pandemic crisis. Both customers and businesses who relied on delivery services are affected by this problem.

BooksRun on How Students Can Make Money with Used Textbooks

a student selling used textbooks to make money

In the last decades, the price of textbooks has increased at a drastic rate, adding up to students’ financial burden. Moreover, new editions of textbooks are issued every year, making the old ones useless. This policy leaves students with no other choice but to purchase these over-priced new editions.

There are, however, several ways that allow students to cope with the increasing prices. First, the online platforms and bookstores that enable students to rent books for a certain period made college textbooks more accessible. Second, students often tend to buy used textbooks or e-books, which are way cheaper than brand new hardcopies from a local college bookstore. Here we will explore how these textbook platforms work and what are the secrets of selling and buying college books online.

BooksRun $1000 scholarship winner

BooksRun $1000 scholarship winner 4

Hi there, it’s Tom! I am glad to announce the winner of our scholarship contest.  It was difficult to choose out of 127 wonderful essays, but we did it.

We congratulate Carol Tally, the student of the Massasoit Community College for winning the $1000 scholarship.  You can read a part of her story below.

Dear BooksRun Scholarship Committee:

Thank you for the opportunity to apply for the BooksRun scholarship.

Returning to college in my mid-fifties started out as an intimidating experience but I realized with resources such as BooksRun, the journey was going to be possible. My college-age children shared their experiences, introduced me to ISBN and navigated around www.booksrun.com with me. This was an amazing introduction and surpassed my experience of standing in a long bookstore line to learn the book just sold out or is selling at a higher than usual mark-up.  Continue reading “BooksRun $1000 scholarship winner”
