i received my textbook from bookrenter. com, the shipping was super fast & free. the book is brand new, it was still wrapped in the packaging. i love love love, but the online access code for the psychlab doesnt work.. wtf?! im just annoyed.. i have to wait till tech support gets back to me. these people are ruining my life, lol. i have work that needs to be done!

luckily if all else fails i can return the book and get my money back

ahhh its that time of the year again, spring semester just started. school is definitely a love hate relationship for me. when i take a semester off i long to go to school, then when a semester begins i dread it. lol i wouldnt mind it as much if it were free, like high school was such a breeze. they provided you with all of your text books, the only fees you ever paid were for classes and things you'd actually use. like.. why do i pay a universal transportation fee so i can ride public transit for free.... when, i dont use the public transit system!!! paying for school irritates me. i also refuse to pay for books at the book store, i swear they're out to rip me off! i spend endless hours before a semester starts searching for the best price for my books, free shipping only. lol i refuse to ever pay for shipping.

this semester in particular i lucked out and only needed to buy one book, considering i am only taking two classes (part-time) i was on a mission to be extra frugal with my budget for textbooks. i found a site, which actually had a really good price. i have never rented a textbook before so this will definitely be a new experience for me, but $56 for the entire semester for a textbook and the cd-rom required for the class.. i couldnt say no. especially considering purchasing one would cost me well near $150.00. i know you can always sell it back at the end of the semester.. but i still feel like i am getting ripped off. especially since the prices can fluctuate so dramatically. i never really care what condition the books are in, from experience i have always bought used books from the web (particularly amazon) and they have always been in great condition. im not the type of person to highlight or write in my books, & im totally annoyed with people that do (no offense), thats why they invented notebooks people!! the rules of high school have definitely stuck with me, lol.

Textbook rental sites like or may be a good option for anyone who is on a limited budget, or doesnt need a $200 textbook for half of a semester (i love that you can rent on a semester/quarter/monthly terms). they also offer free returns, great shipping rates (free standard!). so maybe give it a try next semester? i will do an updated review after the semester ends to let yall know how my first textbook renting experience goes... wish me luck :)

also, good luck to all of the lovely ladies gettin their education on this semester!
