where all can i sell my College Text book online at? Besides Bn.com and Half.com and Ebay?
I payed $120.00 for my book and they only want to give me $32.95 for it

I put my books on half.com I have generally gotten good results. Give Google a try, there are tons of places, but I don't think that they will be giving you much more

also, if your school has a newsboard of some sort (ex: my school has the uci.marketplace newsgroup), or you want to plaster the campus with posters, I find the best way to get rid of my books is by selling them to my fellow students. it's more convenient for everyone involved, and i usually just sell it at $10-20 under the used price in the bookstore. i get my most of my money back, they save a few bucks on the book. it's always worked for me, and i've never had probs selling, though i'm usually selling books for the more common classes.

Getting raped on book sellback is a part of the college experience. Enjoy.

All depends. I'm a lazy bum who hates selling the books at a dirt cheap rates back to the bastards that reamed me in the first place.
I'm a sentimental kind of guy and keep most of my books, even the ones I've never opened. To top it off, sometimes they don't even want the books because the professor plans on using a "newer" edition, and they offer to take it off your hands for no money. Don't ever do that, they turn around and sell it next semester for $5 less. Jackasses.

You can try amazon market place. But I don't sell my text in general. I may use them as reference in the future.
