Once the new semester start, buying new text books has become the standard routine for every college student. Let say a book cost USD 40, four text books should cost around USD 160. That is for a semester. At least USD 320 needs to be spent for a year (two semesters). Believe it or not, most college students do not use the text book anymore after finishing the related subjects. Thus, the text books are going to be wasted inside the store, and become junk. For some smart students with business in mind, they would cut their loss by selling the unused books to juniors at very cheap price.
I know that money is important to every college student, thus why not trying to save your money as much as possible. Text books for education are indeed important but somehow the cost can be cut by renting the appropriate text books instead of buying the new one. Guess what, the renting price is really low compare to the original price of the book but you still get the same contents and information. And at the end of the semester you do not need to worry about finding the ‘victim’ to buy your second hand text books. Save you money and keep you away from headache. I am not sure about other renting service, but Valore Books handle shipping and returning of books for free besides providing cheap college textbooks for college. This is better than borrowing from library since you just need to spend your time at home to rent the related books.
