A day late and a dollar short...that is always me. Of course, we just finished putting the Rev through the completion of his Bachelor's degree and 2 Master's degrees in a 4 year period and now I find out how much money we could have saved by renting his textbooks...I had no idea that such even existed.
CampusBookRentals lets you rent textbooks, for a period of time that you choose, at a fraction of the cost of buying books, I'm talking like a savings of 40-90% off of bookstore prices, with free shipping both ways. And you can highlight in the books just like you would your own (is it wrong that I would totally be hoping a smarty had the book before me and did all of the highlighting for me?). I can't tell you how many books we scoured websites for just trying to find an affordable copy, this would have been awesome.
But, I am still in luck because they have launched a new sister site, RentBack.com, that allows you to rent your books to other students and make money. I know that ya'll hear the wheels turning...and I know that the Rev knows what is about to happen to all of the piles of books that he doesn't need any longer that are cluttering up the office...that's right, I'm about to purge and make some cash!
