I like this idea in theory! As a college student, I wish I could sell back my books for the price I purchased them at. My only concern is that this project depends on people willing to donate their books. And further, what if they're outdated? Would you still carry out the project even if there is not a big group of people willing to give away their books? At the end of the day someone fronted the money for the book and not everyone is willing to hand out freebies.
That’s so awesome, Alison! If you have a team of inspired people do the same in your community!! The little elementary school kids loved it and I could see how confident the students became over time. So the more the merrier :)
