CampusBookRentals.com is a site that offers textbook rentals to save the cost of buying textbooks from the local campus shop. I rented textbooks a few times in graduate school, and the price difference was really astounding. (Example: the Norton Anthology of American literature is nearly $50 on Amazon and likely a whole bunch more at your campus shop, but just about $20 to rent for the semester.)
One of the neat things about CampusBookRentals.com is that they donate to Operation Smile, an organization that raises funds to provide cleft lip surgeries for children who could otherwise not afford it. I really like supporting companies that give back in some manner, so I was very pleased when CampusBookRentals.com reached out to me with an offer for my readers.
