School scam

I think the folks at the school bookstore majored in new math. How else to explain my buying several books for $30 and selling them back for five bucks and change? Sure, the books were used (though I didn't highlight them at all), and yes, they need to make a profit. But a 600% markup seems a bit extreme, especially for books that are a) only used in the one class and b) depressing as hell. At least I cleared some space off my shelves, which I hope to fill up with some cheaper, happier titles.
