We have purchased many new textbooks for various subjects in the past few years. Some of these books cost as much as $60.00 each. In the past we have experienced a varying degree of damage to the new books as early as the first year of use. Book Soxs are required for all hardcover textbooks. Last year’s “Book Sox” covers may be reused if clean and in good condition. Softcover books may be covered with clear contact paper to make them more durable. Thank you for your cooperation.
