Finding inexpensive books is often a difficult task especially when books are a necessity for school. Often, needing just one book isn’t an issue, but having to purchase multiple books can cause struggles. If purchasing a used book with notes and highlights causes irritation, online texts maybe be a better option. Google often has links to pdfs posted by colleges to textbooks and books that have been out for a couple of years.
