Classes start next week. So, yesterday I bought my books. I have just one word to say--EXTORTION! Textbook companies/school bookstores should be ashamed of their pricing. I bought 4 used books and my total was $436. I can buy some rare books for less than that. It is just ridiculous. And if I decide to sell them back to the school I will only get about $10-$15 a book (if I am lucky). Sorry, I just needed to rant a little bit. The beginning of every semester makes me just a little more mad. I should be used to it by now!


  1. I totally agree!! I haven't had to buy textbooks for awhile...but when I did it was a total rip off!

  2. I know, right?!! I know when I was in college they were expensive but that is just ridiculous!!

  3. Ugh. That's one of the things I don't miss about school.

    Good luck!
