    I agree completely! I never expected textbooks to cost me so much darn money when entering college. It would have been nice if someone informed me of that before finding out the hard way. But thank goodness for the Internet because I landed on this site called that searches all the online textbook retailers and rental sites to find you the best price. There were times where I needed to buy some books on the go, so I looked at Apple’s App Store and surely enough has an app for the iPod Touch and iPhone. Truly amazing. Then at the end of my semester I was able to use them to sell my books back. Doesn’t get any better than that! Highly recommend this for anyone!
