The 5 Emotional Stages of Selling Your Textbooks

Good things can come in five stages. For example, did you know that scientists view sleep as a repeated progression of five stages? Who doesn’t enjoy a good night’s sleep (and then some)? People trying to make a change in lifestyle typically follow a 5-stage process to new habits, even if they don’t do it consciously.

Believe it or not, there are even five stages of selling your textbooks for real money. Here are visual representations of the five stages that every Cash4Books user will recognize!

Stage 1: Overwhelmed by the number of old textbooks you own

“I don’t remember even take that many courses last semester! How do I possibly have this many books still lying around?”

Maybe you want to keep a few for future reading or reference, but you’ll never touch most of your old textbooks ever again. So what can you do about it?

Stage 2: Determined to sell all of the textbooks

“Man, these books cost so much money! I should at least try to get some back. I know! I’ll sell them! But how?”

You could go to a campus store, but you don’t know if you’ll be getting a good deal on your books there. And the lines are a drag. You could try using sites like Craigslist or Amazon, but realistically, you’ll probably only sell one course worth of books at a time. There has to be a better way …
