Well, I have been doing some research for my little sister who is going off to college next year (I still can't believe she is old enough to go to college...but that's another blog post! LOL).
I found this great site called Campus Book Rentals. Renting Books.
Why didn't I know about this when I was in school?
You can get 40%-90% off book prices with free shipping both ways. You can rent for a semester or a quarter. These deals are great! This Engineering Book is 70% off.... Oh, I love 70% off of anything! haha
As well as getting great deals on books, they donate. We all know how much I love donating and feel everyone should donate to some organization they support. They donate a portion of the profits of every rental to Operation Smile.
Coming from Campus Book Rentals:
"Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. The long term Improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope To beat that number, but it's a significant commitment. "
In my opinion, if you have to get books anyway, why not get books cheaper and through an organization that donates!!!! I always get so happy when I see other companies donating. There are so many people in need out there that if everyone donated just a little bit the world would be a better place (yes, I sound corny, but it is how I feel).
Now, I can't wait to show my sister this website! I feel like I'm really helping her out with this one- since we all know I can't really afford to give her money for books, haha.
Do you know someone in college who could benefit from Campus Book Rentals? Show them the site!
