My siblings and I grew up with difficulty in getting what we need. My parents are very hardworking and they taught us to be like that too...so much so that even with the hardship in life, we were all able to finish college....not easy...
When I was in college, borrowing my books instead of buying was practical. Why? because they cost a lot of money and I would like to help my parents by doing that. Either I borrow it from the library or borrow it from a friend or a classmate that has finished that particular subject already both helped me saved money.
Inconvenient, yes? But it still served the purpose♥
But renting would have been helpful too if it was available back then in the Philippines.
I want to introduce you to CampusBookRentals.com, a company that actually rents textbooks.
Let me point out the perks of renting textbooks from them:
♥ save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
♥ free shipping both ways
♥ can highlight in the textbooks
♥ flexible renting periods
♥ rent your textbooks without worrying the devaluation at the end of the semester
And the best thing that I like about CampusBookRentals is that they donate to with each textbook rented. Operation Smile is an awesome organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it.
They also have a new program called RentBack, they will rent your books to another student and you get paid everytime it is being rented. Like it yet?☺
