Online Book Sales Help Students

The massive cost of textbook sales for university studies is abhorrent. With all of the improvement in equality of education, through financial aid and private scholarships, a major gauntlet still facing many students is the cost of books each semester. The competitive market of online used books has helped lower the market price of many titles. This discussion has reemerged with vigor on college campuses with the publication of "Rip-Off 101: How the Current Practices of the Textbook Industry Drive Up the Cost of College Textbooks."
