Editor’s Note: This story is the winner of the My Cash4Books Story Contest. We asked our customers to tell us a little about themselves and their textbook selling experiences in their own words.
As a 47-year old wife, mother, grandmother, substitute teacher, intern and full-time college student, my days are filled to the brim with activities. Thus Far, the feeling of keeping busy I find quite rewarding!
Back in 2010, while employed at Tidewater Community College, I decided to take the leap and sign up for classes. Earning a college degree had been my long time aspiration for nearly 30 years. Once my daughters grew older and became less dependant on “mommy” I knew the time was now, to make my dream a reality.
With the support and encouragement of my husband and family, I eagerly dove into my course of studies, earning an average of 3.0 GPA along the way! Due to holding down full-time employment while attending college, it’s taken me 4 years to complete my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Development. I will graduate this May 2014.
Indeed there has been sacrifices while going to college. Time and finances are my top 2 sacrifices! Allocating time throughout the week to concentrate on my studies and gathering up the funds to finance my college expenses has been challenging. The buyback-textbook programs has been a lifesaver. How convenient and easy on the budget, it’s been to buy and sell used textbooks!
During my first few semesters, I was one of those students who stood in the seemingly endless lines at the campus bookstore to sell back textbooks. I found the long waits in line, aggravating and inconvenient. Then someone told me about selling textbooks online. After research and comparing online sites, I finally discovered Cash4Books. This company made it so easy to sell back textbooks! The website is user friendly; just plug in the ISBN number, get an awesome quote, print off the handy mailing label, ship off book and very shortly a check arrives!
Cash4Books, is my go-to online source for selling my textbooks and I’m am so grateful for their superior service! Cash4books has been an exceptional aid for my college expenses and I recommend this company to all college students!
