Hey ladies, I'm sure you all are aware of ways to get cheap textbooks, but I just wanted to share a couple.

First of all, craigslist is awesome. Most likely there is somebody in your area selling their textbook. Also, I love half.ebay.com You can search for the ISBN and find the exact book. They have multiple listings which is wonderful.

I've used both and saved hundreds off of the bookstore prices (even their used prices)

Hope this helps somebody

Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my precious siggy

I have tried that and some of them are still quite expensive. I have a website that I go on where they posted a lot of sites and I am going to see if I can find them. Those are great ways to find discounted books. Thanks for sharing!

there is also bookrenter.com you don't buy the book, but rent it for the time period you need and send it back at the end. I've found some that are still crazy expensive on half.com on there for a better deal (and free shipping both ways)

amazon has good prices on used books sometimes, and with some books chegg.com is great (it's a rental too). The biggest thing is to shop around. Same with selling books back. I found that sell back prices can vary just as much as purchasing prices, so it's important to look around.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!
