While the UWM Bookstore strives to provide the most current information available, due to the volatile nature of the used book market, all used book information is subject to change on a continuous basis.  The prices listed here are in no way guaranteed, but reflect the market price at the time the message was sent.

The UWM Bookstore, with representatives from a used book wholesaler, conducts what we call Book Buy. This is how Book Buy works:

  • If an instructor has submitted a book adoption and the UWM Bookstore needs additional stock, you will be paid 40 - 50% of the new price for the book.
  • The UWM Bookstore resells the book at 69% of the new price.
  • Those books not needed by the UWM Bookstore may be bought by the used wholesaler at the national market value. This price can range up to 30% of the new price.
  • Market value is determined by the age, edition, supply and demand of the book. Unfortunately, some books will have no market value.

This is why final exam week is the best time to sell back books because:

Demand is high and prices are the best!

The UWM Bookstore will buy back books daily from students presenting a valid UWM student ID.

  • We purchase books for a used book company. The dollar amount paid is based on national market value of the book.
  • Market value is determined by the age, edition, supply and demand of the book. Unfortunately, some books will have no market value.
  • You must bring your books to the bookstore in order to get a value. We cannot give out price quotes over the phone, because we need to see the condition of the book.
  • We cannot purchase books with missing pages, water-damaged pages, discolored pages, or torn or missing covers. Also, many books now come with CD's or computer disc. Most often these are needed back when you sell your books.
