Where to buy/sell textbooks (Updated for 2014)

Here are some places to do so:

1. Facebook Group for McMaster Used Textbooks [ALL YEARS] - Just post the course names of the textbooks you have as a wall post here:

2. MacInsiders Marketplace... pick the year you're books are for (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc) and post a thread about your book or books for sale: 5

3. Titles Bookstore Used Textbook Directory Site: post yours or search by title/ISBN number:

4. Hole In The Wall - During the school year Titles runs a "Hole In The Wall" location just down the hall from the Titles Bookstore entrance in the student center. You can get cash back for your used textbooks. However, the prices they pay you back are usually lower than what you could get if you sell the books yourself online through the sources mentioned above (remember, Titles needs to resell your used textbook to make a profit back).

Thanks Chad,
Just a quick note to remind people that the September textbook list comes out on August 9 so if you are looking to buy used books it's best to wait and see if there have been any changes to the editions from last year.
