About Akademos, Inc. and TextbookX.com:
Akademos, Inc. operates a discount online bookstore, found on the Internet at
www.TextbookX.com, offering over 930,000 new and used textbooks, general
books, and reference titles. We have every day low prices on new and
used books, up to 90% off retail prices. Our marketplace program is an open
marketplace for students to post their used course materials and general
books for sale. Students typically sell their books for an average
of two times more than bookstore buyback prices on the marketplace.
The company was founded with the goal of enhancing educational opportunities for
students. In line with this fundamental purpose, we launched last year the
TextbookX.com Scholarship Program and we hope to make it a longstanding and
bountiful feature of our website.
