About Us

1Up Books Inc. is a college textbook company based in Columbia, Missouri, started in 2007 by two college brothers, Aaron and Brandon Knoblauch. Unlike campus bookstores, which have expensive physical stores to maintain, our books are available for sale strictly online. Utilizing our many textbook buyback programs throughout the Midwest, as well as our nation-wide shipping suppliers, we are able to provide you with all the books you need for class for significantly less than your local bookstore.  Ultimately, our mission is to one up the competition, your wallet thickness, and most importantly, your satisfaction.
