Textbooks are quite expensive these days. I know of half.com, but I don't know of anything else.

  • I suggest you reword this question and make it a Community Wiki. I would ask: What are some sites which offer deals on college textbooks? The Community Wiki (CW) is more appropriate for these types of questions which can not actually be answered objectively. See this about off-topic questions meta.money.stackexchange.com/questions/55/… And this example of a CW: money.stackexchange.com/questions/2674/… Aug 18, 2010 at 4:18
  • @George you're correct, so I've done that.

Have you tried seeing if your college's bookstore offers used textbooks? Half.com still may be cheaper, but used from your bookstore beats new by a lot.

Also, from this website which I just discovered comes a list of places to rent textbooks or buy them at a discount.


Amazon got into this market a few years ago and given their customer service reputation, I'd say it's a good place to check out.

  • I second that. Some times buying used books takes more effort than its worth. Amazon has a great pro/con ratio to make it profitable. Jul 24, 2011 at 18:39
