Used textbooks can be found anywhere on the Internet or in your city. You can purchase or rent a used copy of the book that you are looking for. You may even be able to find free books as well.
Go on the Internet and put in the names of the used books that you are looking for in the search engine box. A list of book companies will appear letting you know where the books can be found. Click on several of the links to compare rates. If you are looking for a particular edition by an author, make sure that the book company offers the correct book. There may be a site where you can compare rates from several bookstores at once. Click on the bookstore that has the best rate and make your purchase.
Another place you can find used books for less is at a rental bookstore. Many online bookstores are offering rental books because they know that once a person finishes a book, they will usually store it in there home or throw it away, especially if they cannot sell it. Select how long you want to rent the book and send it back before the due date. The good thing about rentals is that you can rent as many books as you want at one time. Unlike at a library where you can only rent a limited number of books at once. (more...)
