Buying textooks since 2011


The Bookstands has been proudly providing high prices to students since 2011.  What differentiates us from other bookstores is our ability to student, instructor, exam copy, and binder edition textbooks -- even if they don't have the access code!  To learn more, simply browse through our site.



Our Story

Two guys, Brandon and Jason, started buying textbooks door to door in the Spring of 2011. 

After driving all the way to Denver from near Houston to buy textbooks, they spent most of 5 days in frustration due to two old guys in a creepy panel van staged on a side street buying textbooks.  

That's when the idea hit them:  "We can do this back home, way better, and way less creepy."  

The Bookstands has expanded to 22 employees, manning 5 seasonal stands at Sam Houston State University and 2 seasonal stands at Stephen F Austin State University. 

During the academic year, we directly service university professors, grant programs, and charter schools.  We also provide liquidation and office clean-out services.

For more information about the pricing and services we provide, or you just want to say hello, reach out today.



The Bookstands is committed to providing specialized service whether you have 1 book to sell or 100.   Questions, comments or special requests? We’d love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to reach out today.
