  1. I found this post in Google after getting shocked by the prices of some of the textbooks I needto get this semester. Can’t believe there are even more expensive textbooks! This is insane…

    Anyways, I tried using your search tool thingie to find my books for this semster and holy hell! I saved close to $700 by not buying them in my campus store. Never setting foot there again, that’s for sure.
