In response to widespread student frustration about the inability to return textbooks, the Brown Bookstore recently admitted that their textbook buy-back program is just taking the ones with shiny covers. “Listen, the shiny ones are just prettier,” argued bookstore manager Ted Dorsey, who doesn’t plan on settling for anything less. “You get those bio textbooks with the great colors and sometimes majestic animals, and the chem textbooks with the intricate molecules—wow. But I’m definitely passing on those worn out, highlighted, paperback social science books. Not aesthetic at all.” At press time, the bookstore was only renting out the grimy ones.
