Why LoveMyBook?

On average students will spend £720 a year on books and equipment.  Books alone can be up £500 – for example a Vet Science “starter pack” is around £300 for just 6 books! LoveMyBook is here to help you sell your loved books that you no longer need and buy the ones that you do! This can include textbooks, articles and workbooks so there is something for everyone, no matter what you are studying!

How did LoveMyBook come about?

As students, finding the right textbook for each module is so important. The library might not always have it in stock, there is no online version available or, if you are like us, you prefer to always have the book to hand for when you are note-taking or revising. Instead of spending potentially hundreds of pounds on books throughout your degree, LoveMyBook is here to make you life easier and to save you money.

Interesting Fact

‘Bibliosmia’ is the word for those who love the smell of old books.
