If there's one thing that hasn't changed though, it's how surprising the cost of all those textbooks can be! Campus Book Rentals is trying to help with that though.
I wish it had been around when I was in the market for textbooks! In fact, I recently had one of those "college nightmares"---does anyone else have those dreams where you're back in college but you suddenly realize that you have a class you haven't been attending all semester and now have 3 papers due? ---in this particular dream I hadn't even bought the book I needed for the class :) That's when I wake up and realize that maybe getting lunches ready for my kids isn't so stressful!
In the short video here you'll learn how it works, like you can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices, you'll get free shipping both ways and you can even highlight in the books!
Anyway, if you or anyone you know need textbooks now, or in the fall, check out Campus Book Rentals as well as their new program where you can rent out books that you own.
Such a great idea if you have a book that you'd like to hold on to, but don't necessarily need in your current semester. So good luck graduates, and may you not end up in the one class that requires the professors self-authored book that is twice as expensive as the other ones :)
