What is Textbook Arbitrage?

Textbook arbitrage is buying and immediately reselling textbooks for a profit.

This is what a "book flipper is". They buy a book from one vendor, and then they turn around and sell it to another vendor for a profit.This can be very lucrative and there are lots of tutorials online about how to make hundreds or even thousands every month flipping textbooks.
