Yep, my four books went for about $350, and I'm just at community college.

And two of them were used.

I spent over $200 alone on my Japanese books. It's funny when you try to sell them back at the end of the semester and they give you all of $15 for them.

Quit complaining it's part of the college experience.

Complaining about the price of books is also part of the college experience.

Hentai. It's a completely different world that will rip your eye-sockets and and skull-screw you with its tentacles.

Oh stop your whining...I paid $500 for my first quarter books because the school didn't notify us in time to buy them from used bookstore or online...

I'm pretty sure that your 250 dollars worth is nothing compared to most of our expenses...

thanks for the site, checking it out right now.

Basically it's a huge database that links you to different online bookstores or private sellers.

From that website I bought stuff from Alibris.com and Bookbyte.com

Clickers are lame. I've owned three different ones, I wonder why the can't settle on some standards. They all do essentially the same thing.

i would have spent about $600 on books this semester, and i managed to cut it back to about $350-400 using amazon and ebay. don't buy books from the school bookstore. at least not the really expensive ones. i found my Geology book on amazon brand new for $60 and the school bookstore was asking $120 for it. its a huge ripoff.


oh and be glad you only need 4 books. i needed 8 for one class this semester. i think my total book count for this semester is about 17-18.

luckily most of them aren't "textbooks" so they are more reasonably priced. oh the joy of being a history major. but really, i do love my major. it just requires a TON of reading.

The only reason I buy my books from the university bookstore is because the profits go directly to my school and not to a mega-corporation.

Needless to say the University of Arizona along with two other Arizonan universities just got $145 million dollars in budget cuts, they need all the help they can get. Damn economy.

Apply for financial aid. As long as your parents aren't extremely wealthy you'll probably get something.

The idea is that the government invests in your future and you become a productive member of society.
