In fact, college texts have gotten so expensive that students have a tendency to not write in their books as they can get a higher price for them when there is no underling and the dreaded yellow marker.
But for those people who go out and purchase college materials for resale, college text books are a good possibility of profits.
Publishers do not print new editions each year. So, used books are a better value for students. College text sell for big bucks – hundreds of dollar. It is a major expense in attending college.
This means big profits for the publishers. Some of these end up in places where buyers, or book scouts, can find them and sell them.
