Nah personally I and the gf have always used amazon marketplace. Price them well and you could have them sold by the end of the week.

Amazon Marketplace is good. If you have a bookstore on campus, they will usually also buy them off you, but they wont pay as well as the Amazon Marketplace, less hassle though.

I sold a load of mine back to the University book shop I originally bought them from. Depends on whether your book shop buys books though.

Alright for some, our university book shop is Waterstones!
I wish they would buy some back as some of mine are £45 books originally!

I'd suggest advertise in your department if still near the unviersity, if not then amazon marketplace is probably best.

I would suggest hanging onto them if you can, and then advertising the books as a job lot in September when the new crop of students arrive

Does your Uni website allow you to advertise items for sale?

I've bought some of mine from Abebooks.co.uk

I'd just try sell em locally though so you don't have to mess about with fees (most sites will take a cut) and postage which'll be a lot.

Put an ad up at your uni and on your local Gumtrwee when the next lot of students are taking the course
