HEY!!  Thanks great. Thanks. And that’s cool that your prof told you. I am an English major and so a lot of the books I need, I end up keeping, because they are novels or something. But I may be able to use this site in the future. Thanks.

I used this website last semester and it is great!  I only wish they had it when I was in undergrad.

http://www.textbooksrus.com is a good one too! They sell the international versions of the book – so the only difference is the cover illustration, and that it is usually a paperback instead of a hard cover… but I got one of my books for $50, when it was $113 at the school’s bookstore, and $80 on other websites like amazon.

Yea that’s a good deal, but does anybody else packrat their books? I mean, I don’t think I’ve sold a single one…so I don’t know if I could stomach renting.

Textbook prices are SOOOO inflated. Especially when they put out new editions all the time that hardly change a thing, except the pricetag. I get that some stuff changes, but jeez.

I’ve heard about that site before but never knew anyone that actually used it so I was suspicious. I’ll have to check it out now. Thanks!

I am lucky and at a university were I am able to rent most of my books from the school for $7/credit hour.  This semester all my books were a little over $100.  One other book site that I have found really helpful as of late is google books.  If the book you need is on there you can “search the text” for a specific key word or phrase and it will go to that page of the book, or list some snipits from the places that it is in the book.  It is great for classes where you are looking for that one sentence that you need and you can’t seem to find it.

If you want to buy books. i would advise you to go online and search the prices for these books using services like http://www.thecollegetextbooks.net. It is better than going for standalone stores. As you can save on lot of money using them.
