It sounds so lame, but when I was in college, buying textbooks online was almost unheard of. I remember talking to my sister about buying off Amazon. She thought it was a great idea. I was skeptical at best. And renting textbooks from a brick-and-mortar store? No one did that. (Geez, I feel like I need to put in my dentures and yell at some kids to get off my lawn.)
If you're in school and you're looking for an affordable alternative, CampusBookRentals.com maybe be just the thing for you. Book rentals are cheaper than buying and reselling (although if you've bought books and want to rent them, CampusBookRentals.com has a program for you, too). You can use the books as you would your own-- highlight, write in them, fall asleep on them in the library. Shipping is free both ways, and the company has been vetted and lauded by outlets like the New York Times. In addition, CampusBookRentals.com has partnered with Operation Smile to provide free surgery for children with facial deformities. If you like supporting businesses who support social causes, you may have found your business for your books!
