It’s a new year and a new term if you’re at school, college or university… I bet the Christmas break went past far too quickly, right? I’m now in the big wide world of work but my exams are not behind me as I’m still trying to study whilst holding down a full time job. I must admit the former isn’t going very well and my revision barely happens which I find hard because during school and university I would go a little crazy and literally revise from 7am to 11pm with hardly any breaks. Having to adapt to a new way of working is a big challenge for me but it will help my career (the exams are specific to my job) so I really need to try to get them done!
I know a lot of my readers are also studying so when I was contacted by Campus Books (based in the USA) about their company I was keen to share it with you guys. Campus Books offers students the opportunity to rent textbooks which can save you a lot of money as they are very expensive to buy and most people never look at them after graduation. I remember spending hundreds on books every year of university. It also sounds pretty stress free as you place your order online. Other advantages include:
- Save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
- Free shipping both ways
- Can highlight in the textbooks
- Flexible renting periods
- A donation is made to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
An alternative for those who have already bought their textbooks is to rent them out to other students. This is a new initiative introduced by Campus Books and means that you can regain some of the money you spend on your purchases. To find out more about this look at the Rent Book website.
I love that Campus Books are also looking to help those in need through Operation Smile. This is an international charity to help children who are born with a cleft lip. These children often find it difficult to eat, drink and smile are can be bullied because of the way they look. Operation Smile is a volunteer based medical charity that helps thousands of children in over 60 countries by offering free surgery.
Over 1 million customers rent textbooks from Campus Books at over 5,500 college campuses across the nation (US only) and you could join them by visiting the Campus Books website here.
Do you think you would rent a textbook or let other students rent yours?
