I am getting ready to start my next semester of school. Since I have a newborn and my college offers it, I am taking the majority of my classes online. However, I still have to purchase my textbooks. I looked at the prices today and I shudder at the near thought of it. Most of my books from my bookstore are $50.00 or more - two of them cost $168.00 and $220.00. I am looking at roughly $600.00 in textbooks alone!
However, I did find a textbook site that offers several different options. Textbooks.com offers the options to buy a new, used, or rent the book. I can even purchase an e-book. However, I am a little skeptical and want to be sure I have my books in time for school. Has anyone else used this sort of site before? I know there are local bookstore options but here in Shreveport we really don't have many used textbook stores.
