I wish this was around when I was attending the University of Houston! If you went to college, there is a 95% chance you experienced this before: Having to pay lots of money for a textbook, and at the end of the semester when you go to resell it, they give you back peanuts for it only to turn around and sell it again for a lot more to the next person.

Well now there is a solution – the HoustonBookExchange.com. The site pairs people who want to buy and sell college textbooks for a small fee. “I launched the site because I knew people would get more for their books, and buyers would save money” says Emely Galvez, founder.

Galvez intends to launch similar websites in San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. Great idea Galvez!
