Affordable Textbooks

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share some information my classmate provided me recently. I was usually purchasing my $$$$ EXPENSIVE $$$ Textbooks and had hardly any money left over for anything. However, I have seen the light and currently have the option of purchasing or renting my textbooks at a fraction of the price I was paying. I thought other students on a budget could appreciate this information.

Anyways log on to: Green Textbooks: Rent College Textbooks | Cheap Textbook Rentals
and start saving like I did.

    Another thing you can do is visit the campus bookstore, jot down the ISBN#, and compare used prices on sites like Amazon. You can find used textbooks for much cheaper than the bookstore used textbook price. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't -- sometimes it is cheaper to buy the textbook at the bookstore.

    Oh, and the thing about security, I've done this for the past three years, and I have not had a problem even once. Buy at least two weeks in advance, though, as it takes time to ship.
