College kids everywhere are bracing for astronomical textbook bills this fall semester ? a cost that?s become debilitating – often prohibitive – for many.
Consider this:
In 2007-2008, the average 4-year college student spent $921-$988 on textbooks.*
Skyrocketing prices got so high it prompted the College Textbook Affordability Act – which doesn?t go into effect until July 2010.
But there is an immediate solution for struggling students:
Better World Books offers millions of used textbooks and books online at prices up to 80% below what the college bookstore offers. It gets better:
Better World offers *free shipping* in the U.S. on all textbooks
Green: By buying used textbooks, students are recycling, and therefore keeping books out of landfills and saving trees. Plus Better World offers carbon offsets for each shipment.
Best part: a percentage of all textbook purchases goes to fund global literacy initiatives like Books for Africa?a win-win-win situation.
Better World Books “gets” the textbook problem – it was founded in 2002 by three broke Notre Dame seniors who figured out they could make more money by selling their books online than they could at their college bookstore. They turned it into a business, and today their company is one of the world?s largest sellers of new and used textbooks.
