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


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 '11 at 18:39
