Textbook BuyBack Policy

Ichabod Shop will buy back every book we can during BuyBack period each term at the best price possible.
BuyBack occurs during finals week of the semester.
Here's how it works:

  • Books that will be used again for the upcoming term (already requested by the instructor) will be purchased from you at the best possible price.
  • The earlier during the BuyBack period you sell your books, the more likely you are to get the best price. Only the anticipated quantity needed is offered this price.
  • If the quantity needed for a particular book is met, or the book will not be used next term, the wholesale price will be offered, if one exists. The wholesale price is based on national demand and not set by Ichabod Shop.
  • Some books have no resale value and will not be purchased.
  • Damaged books or books in poor condition will not be purchased. This includes any book with missing pages, broken bindings, water damage or excessive writing.
  • Faculty,  determine which books are used for classes. Faculty members are responsible for notifying Ichabod Shop of their book selections in a timely fashion. The Ichabod Shop relies on this information to determine your BuyBack price.
