v. The act of selling one's text books from the previous semester back to the university. This will ALWAYS result in feelings of abuse, frustration, being ripped off, and barely enough cash to pay for a conciliatory ice cream cone.
"Dude, I spent like $500 on text books for class this spring, and I went to the university book store for a Textbook buy-back, and they only paid me $23 for the whole lot!"

"Wow! That's messed up! You must feel pretty ripped-off, abused, and frustrated. Wanna go get some ice cream?"

"Sure. Next year I'm definitely buying my books online, if the school posts the book list earlier than seven days before class!"
