I hate to keep posting about college textbooks...

...but this is what happens in the current system:

3 arrested in college book-selling scam

Police said they would either shoplift the books or write bad checks and then return the books to other stores for a cash refund....

...The total loss incurred by the three bookstores and the bank was $15,823.76.

I looked around for stats on textbook shoplifting, but couldn't find any meaningful numbers. I imagine, with the cost of books, that there is a lot of loss that bookstores have to pick up due to poor students swiping books.
