We accept more books than SIU and John A. Logan!
The Bookworm purchases textbooks that have a current market value. Because we are purchasing books on behalf of a national company which re-sells textbooks to students across the country, we are NOT limited to buying only textbooks that are currently being used at SIU or John A. Logan College.
A computer program identifies and prices books according to their ISBNs. It allows us to determine immediately if your book can be purchased and what amount we can pay. (The BOOKWORM does not establish the prices paid per book.) If you accept the offer, we will pay CASH on the spot.
Textbooks must be in good condition.
Textbooks must be complete with only normal signs of wear. Textbooks published with supplemental material (cds, access codes, etc.) must still contain those supplies.
Textbooks with excessive highlighting, margin notes, cover damage or staining may be accepted but at a discounted rate.
We cannot purchase textbooks with water damage, missing or torn pages or other significant damage. We cannot purchase instructor editions, custom university editions, loose-leaf books, complimentary or international editions.
We do not price match with other competitors. The price we offer for your textbooks is determined by the company and is non-negotiable.
You can bring textbooks in anytime during regular store hours. We cannot offer price quotes by phone.
