We are enjoying Calvin’s Spring Break right now, but also preparing for the next semester/year. Since Calvin has been in college the entire time we’ve been married (5+ years), buying textbooks has become “old hat” to us.
Often, used books have limited availability in the college bookstore, or they are still high-priced. Thus, the online search begins. Many sites offer books at a discounted rate, but it can take time to sort through and compare them.
A new site has made textbook buying even easier for us: Dave’s Campus. It searches many different sites, and shows you where you can get the cheapest books. We just received a book that Calvin had ordered, and the whole process worked perfectly! You can find other books, music, or movies through there, also; not just textbooks.
Instead of browsing through various sites, looking for the perfectly-priced book, CD, or DVD, this site works for me! (By the way, I am related to ‘Dave,’ but I am posting this of my own free will, with no affiliation/compensation.)
