Second Reader is the second hand book sale for RSM Students Powered by SR!
Step 1: Collection
You can come to the SR Office (located at T5-54) on one of our pre-determined collection days to hand-in your old study books. We will store them and try to sell them during one of our sales. We will also determine the quality of your book. We accept and offer two qualities. Quality 1 is given to a book that, visually, looks new from the outside and the inside (so it should contain no writing or highlighting). Moreover, it must be the right version as determined by the professor of the subject. Quality 2 is given to a book that shows clear signs of usage on the outside, and/or contains writing/highlighting on the inside. Any book that is not the right version as determined by the professor of the subject, but can still be used, will immediately get a Quality 2 mark. Quality 1 books will sell for two-thirds of the original retail price and Quality 2 books will sell for one-half of the original retail price.
As a second- or third-year student, you can hand in your Trimester 1 or 4 books on the following day:

Step 2: Sale
This year we are launching a brand-new reservation system! This entails that you can fill in our Online Reservation Form (access here!), listing all the books you wish to purchase (The book list in step 1 shows you which books we offer). We will try and get back to you within 24 hours with a confirmation of which books are available in which qualities (We will try to consistently update the website with the supply of our books). You can then confirm your reservation and your books will be kept aside! Afterwards, you can just come to one of our pre-determined sale days to collect and pay for your books.* This will save you all the trouble of coming to one of our sale days not knowing whether our books are in stock!
Alternatively, you can still simply attend one of sale days to see which books are in stock.
We only accept cash as a form of payment, so no bank transfers!
The deadline for handing in the reservation form for is to be determined!
Friday, 07 September 2018 (from 15:30h)
Monday, 10 September 2018 (from 11h to 14h; 10.30h – 14h for IBA1 students!)
Tuesday, 11 September 2018 (from 11h to 14h)
Step 3: Wiring Your Money
After completing our sales you will receive an email informing you which of your books have been sold. We will then wire you the sale price for each book, minus 2 Euros. 1 Euro will go to marketing costs and the remaining Euro will be donated to a charity! We will also inform you which of your books have not been sold, you can then pick these up from the SR office at a later date.
By selling your books through Second Reader you will save yourself the hassle of trying to contact someone who would want to buy your books.
By buying your books through Second Reader you will get the best deal for second-hand books anywhere!
Terms and Conditions
By accepting the terms and conditions, I am aware that if my book(s) do not sell, and I do not pick up the books within 3 months of dropping them off, second reader has the right to dispose of my books as they see fit. The exception to this rule is if I have made a valid effort to get in contact with Second Reader through Facebook or email before the 3 month deadline, and made it clear that I am unable to pick up my book(s) because of exchange or other personal reasons. At which point the 3 months deadline gets extended by another 3 months, to a total of 6 months after the collection date.
*Disclaimer for reservation system
If I choose to accept a reservation, I understand that I will collect and pay for my reservation on one of the days as prescribed in the email communication with SR.
