About The Better Bookstore

 The Better Bookstore is a textbook store designed to provide students with a simple and cost effective means of purchasing and reselling textbooks. As a small group of former University of San Diego students, we as owners are familiar with the significant costs associated with purchasing textbooks. We have created The Better Bookstore to simplify the hassle of textbook buying while allowing customers to save money. Furthermore, we understand the outrageously low prices offered for the buyback of textbooks, and we can offer students more for their textbooks while still being able to run a successful company. We strive to sell textbooks at low prices, deliver them to students affordably, and buy back textbooks at fair prices. You don't have to go to the bookstore, wait in long lines only to have to pay absurdly high prices for textbooks that you can only resell for 10% of the initial cost. Use The Better Bookstore and allow us to provide you with a unique, high-quality textbook transaction!  We are the premier book buyer in San Diego!
