Great website for cheap textbooks: www.bigwords.com
It searches all the big sites for the best deal and also lists possible coupons.
I thought I could get away with not buying textbooks this semester, aside from my Latin workbook which cost like $20. But I’ve decided to buy one of the “optional” textbooks that my teacher keeps referring to OVER and OVER. And if I put in a request at the library to purchase it, who knows how long that might take…and with my first exam in a couple weeks it’s better to be on the safe side.
