Second-hand book sales

Kraket also sells and purchases second-hand books. This service will not be offered offline! To sell you second-hand books, you can easily go to Just enter the ISBN-13 number of your book to see if it is possible to sell this specific title. After you have filled in your personal information, hand it in at the VU bookstore. As soon as your book is sold you'll receive your money.
