Old book store website

Introduction story:

Last night while i was talking with my little sister about her exercise: Making a website to sell old/unused book. She is studying business matter. Wow a good idea! Suddenly i came up with a site doing nearly the same thing. It is for Sharing books. Basically it is quite different since i am not making any business here or gain any money from that action.

Let start with the story. When i was at the university, every semater i spent lots of money on books. Event though the true was not 🙁 since i was not so interested in those books at all. And then when it came over, where those books went? They became garbage; a waste of money. And the cycle begins with new comers. So what can we do? Instead of buying the new ones, we can ask for them with lower price or even free ( if you meet a generous guy).

What is the obstacle in that solution? The communication: how do you know where/who to ask for? Therefore, the site i am going to build is a meant to solve that issue. Of course it needs help from many people especially the ones who have old books.

Let summary the process:

  1. Book owner publishes books into the site.
  2. People needing book go in and search for them.
  3. He, then, contacts with book owner for a deal.
  4. Book owner updates the available number of that book or remove them if out of stock.

Simple 🙂
