Welcome to Xbook. Here you will find a simple way to buy and sell textbooks. For the next little while, exchanging textbooks on Xbook will be reserved for current students at the University of Alberta. Once this testing phase is complete, Xbook will be expanded to include a number of post-secondary institutions across Canada.

Why is Xbook easier to use than other textbook sources? It's smarter. Xbook can access the classes you are currently taking or have already completed through Bear Scat. Sell your textbooks with a couple clicks of your mouse instead of hunting down old course numbers or ISBNs.
