Selling books back to college bookstore

It's been a long time since college, and the books were a good deal cheaper back then. (although it didn't feel that way at the time.) I've googled this, and it seems all the sites are for online selling and require an ISBN number. I've also looked up the cost of buying the books from the bookstore with no luck.

Anyway, I have my MC, who's majoring in interior design, sell his books back to the college bookstore. He doesn't have time to do this online. I mention that the books had cost him $1,000, (books and supplies can run $1500) and he'd only got back $90 for them. (also, he couldn't sell back some of the books because the instructors were using another book for the next semester.) Is this feasible?

If I need to change the dollar amounts, I can do that.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!
