Online Resources for New, Used, Rental and Electronic Textbooks

Some students choose to purchase books online. To find your textbook, search by author, title or ISBN. Each book has its own book number or ISBN which can be found on the back of the title page or above the barcode for the book. Use the ISBN to find the right edition for your class.

I would suggest GreenTextbooks.org
Save Money, Save The Planet

GreenTextbooks.org specializes in the recycling of textbooks, DVDs, CDs. Buying used textbooks not only saves you money, but cuts down on greenhouse gases caused by the manufacturing of new textbooks. http://www.GreenTextbooks.org

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ever-present in this day and age, and I am fairly confident when I say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets cheaper, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about every once in a while.

Virtual memory is something that I seem to be unable to ever have enough of. It's as if megabytes and gigabytes have become an inseparable part of my day to day existence. Ever since I bought a Micro SD Card for my NDS flash card, I've been on the constant lookout for large memory at low prices. I feel like I'm going insane.
