Buying Used Textbooks

Millions Available
We have a huge selection of used textbooks available for purchase directly from and we work with Marketplace sellers, all of whom are approved by Barnes & Noble to offer the largest inventory of used textbooks on the internet. To find used textbooks, just search by title, author, or ISBN to see if we have a used version of the textbook you are looking for.

Low Prices
We offer you low prices, so you can stretch your budget. Some of our used textbooks are listed at 90% off their sticker price.

Standards You Can Trust
We sell only the highest-quality used books. You won't find mildew stains, missing pages, or pervasive underlining! Even lab manuals, study guides, and workbooks are intact and virtually scribble-free.

Return Policy

You can return used books, so don't be afraid to add a used textbook to your cart. Returns are accepted within 14 days of the date you received your order.
