Save with digital textbooks, eBooks and old-school paper
It’s no secret that textbooks can be a huge financial burden on students. Being smart about how you purchase or rent books can bring the cost down in a big way. We’re going to talk about some ways to save on textbooks by going digital or being savvy when buying real books.
Keep in mind, the digital textbook market is far from all-encompassing and is certainly more attuned to the needs of students studying Dickens and Shakespeare than those hunting down the 9th edition of some obscure quantum physics textbook. We’re going to scale out some of the players in the digital textbook market and see how Amazon, Google and Apple stack up.
If you love paper or have little success finding digital copies of your books, don’t worry. We’ve included some old-school, tried and true tips as well as a few affordable online retail aggregators of second-hand books and textbooks for rent.
