Come join in on our struggle to avoid crushing debt!

Are you sick and tired of the inhumanely overpriced textbooks?
Do you have stacks of used books at home just waiting to be sold?
Fed up with the way things are and have hope for what some day could be?
You’re in luck!
A group of students have come together to organize what they’re hoping will become Douglas College’s first annual Textbook Market, and they need your help!
During the first week of the semester, our organizers will be raising up makeshift stands outside the bookstore, where you will be free to try to peddle your artisanal used textbook wares to your heart’s content.
We’re hoping to have the support of at least 200-strong by the end of the week.
Sign-up is easy: all you need to do is show up with whatever used textbooks you’ve already invested half your savings account into, bring a chair, an entrepreneurial spirit (and maybe a pitchfork, just in case), and you’re good to go!
The market will be a week-long affair boasting various food trucks, live music, comfortable seating arrangements, and much more.
Let’s work together to bring down the tyrannical power that the bookstore prices hold over us!
Down with the establishment!
Arise the common folk!
Family and friends are welcome.
HIDDEN DISCLAIMER: The Douglas College Textbook Market is in no way for sure not a guise to a movement that will overthrow the bookstore and drive down prices through hostile demands. If you are interested in being a part of such a protest, this is definitely “not” the place to be this January.
Let’s change our world together, one “Textbook Market” at a time—email firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
