The Students’ Union has launched a brand new Book Market, allowing students to buy and sell second-hand books with ease.
The website, a manifesto pledge from Union President Frida Gustafsson, intends to save students money on course textbooks and help protect the environment.
Frida Gustafsson said: “I know I used to get quite annoyed with how expensive my course books were, and wished there was an easy way to get a hold of a cheaper second hand copy. I’m hoping students will enjoy this website as much as I would have!
“I've been working with some fabulous people in the Students' Union to make it as good as can be, and it’s been amazing to see the progress of the Book Market from my idea and manifesto point to a real, actual website for students to use.
“I so look forward to seeing students starting to use it, and hope you make sure to go find your old course books (if you’re anything like me, they’re probably hiding under your bed) and put them up on the Book Market!”
The launch of the Book Market coincides with World Book Day, and we’ll be celebrating both events in Room 76 until 4pm today (Thursday 1 March).
Buy and sell your books at www.sussexstudent.com/bookmarket.
