Half.com, powered by eBay, provides yet another avenue for your books. Sometimes, if other sites don’t have the books you’re looking for or if they are not selling them at the prices you’re looking for, Half is the place to go.
- Used and new books: Books of all kinds are sold reduced at Half. The site divides books by quality categories: Brand New, Like New, Very Good, Good and Acceptable. You can even get book recommendations by signing up and filling out your preferences.
- Textbooks and rentals: Textbooks are searchable by ISBN number and divided by the same quality categories as your books. But what if you’re done with your book and have no more use for it? You can become a seller and sell your textbook on Half as well. Rentals of textbooks are also available from 30 to 125 days. You may write in your book, with discretion to leave the book in useable condition, and then return it at the end of the semester simply by printing a label provided by the site and mailing it to the seller.
