On Campus

I hate buying textbooks

I just finished buying a textbook for one of the courses I’m taking this summer. $103 later, I have a textbook which I will use for twelve weeks and then put on a bookshelf to collect dust.

Really, $103 for a seventh edition that hasn’t actually changed much since the first. Have to love the racket that is getting a degree.
