CHEAPER COLLEGE TEXTBOOKS

BigWords.com has low-price deals on textbook sales and rentals. You have to be a student (or know one) to get the deals.

We looked up “Materials Science and Engineering, an Introduction,” for example. Amazon was selling it for $115, but BigWords had it for $28. We looked up the “Norton Anthology of English Literature,” which was selling for $30 at BigWords; the lowest price on Amazon was $53. But we bought it at a library sale for $1. Don’t forget to attend your local library sales.

What makes the BigWords site a bit different from other book dealers is that you can keep adding books to your “book bag,” and their search engine will put together the best deal from other sellers. It had the best prices on whatever titles we could think of to look up.
