Online: BookUp.my

Alrights, lets take a break from all of the food, travel, fashion, etc posts and lets get down to business. 
Gosh I sound so serious now. Haha.

Anyways, not sure about you all but have you ever felt like your room is packed with so many of your previous textbook, revision books or books from big bad wolf sale or popular sale? I remember when I was in form 4, my room was still filled with PMR revision books (its so unfair that the recent batch doesn't have to take PMR anymore) and I just didn't have the heart to recycle them as they were all kept in a good condition. When I want to give it away, it seems like everyone had their books already. This goes the same for SPM also.

Got to many books in your house? Want to make a profit of them?
Need some textbooks but too broke to get some?

When I enter College, I was so shocked that textbooks were so bloody expensive. I enrolled into CIMP in Sunway University and I almost fainted when I went to the book store to ask how much were my textbooks. You won't believe it how much they told me. I still remember that FOR ONE BOOK it was priced at RM200. Social Science subjects somehow is always priced the most expensive. I bought a second hand book in the end for RM120. At that time, I thought okay la maybe the books is expensive because I am in a canadian program.

But as I enter University, it is even worst. The prices goes higher. Lol. Seriously, we are students that don't earn a single cent and how are we suppose to afford them? Sometimes after the semester is over, my room would pilled up of unnecessary textbooks again. All of them were taken care properly and sometimes, no ones wants to buy it because the lecturer decided to change the textbook for their subject (Seriously hates it when that happens. haha). Same goes to my other novel books after I read them for dozens of time.

So yeah, I always wished that there was a platform where I could sell my books to other people. Maybe there are other people out there who wants my book without making them broke.

So Bookup.my saw this problem and they started an online platform for people to sell their books and to buy books for a cheaper price. Besides that, this also help people to recycle the books and not let them go to waste.
