Typing in the ISBN Number on Yahoo will git a list of sites with
that text book and there is a part that pops up at the top with
the prices that you can choose which to buy from. We usually
have about 2 weeks to get the books before classes start. There
has only been one time that the book didn’t arrive before the
class but the instructor told the students they wouldn’t need it
until later in the class.
Another way of doing it very cheap is to have the student try to
check the book out at the college library. (Or do the reading
assignments in the library if checking out is not an option).
Sometimes a public library will have the books as well.
If you are looking for books to purchase not for school I go to
the library and check what they have (writing down the ISBN
number and order the same way on line when I get home if I like
I don’t buy cook books as I can borrow them any time from the
library and if we like the dish I just write out the recipe and
where I got it from.
If you enjoy reading stories but the books cost are to much (I
have seen some for 10 – 15 dollars sorry but not for
entertainment purposes only that is too high) write your own
stories that way you can include what you like and exclude what
you don’t like.
