Summary of project We collected textbooks from medical students who wanted to sell their books. After logging all of the books into a spread sheet we set them up in our student lounge and had interested first years take a number. The numbers corresponded with the time that they could come and choose the books they wanted to buy. We allowed 10 people at a time for ten minute time slots, as to decrease crowding in the lounge. We accepted check or cash. The sale went very smoothly. We plan to hold another book sale at the beginning of the first years second block.
