A Recent Discovery!

I recently came accros a great way to rent and recycle textbooks. Although I have never been a college student, I know that textbooks can be very expensive, and I've always wondered why people will pay so much money for books they won't use in a couple years.

So here's what I found. 

The first method of saving money for textbooks is renting them from a company instead of buying them. This way you don't spend as much money, and you don't have the book longer than you need it. Campus Book Rentals seems like a great option for doing this. I personally haven't used their service, but it looks like a great tool if you're in need of any textbooks. http://www.campusbookrentals.com 

Some perks are:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

But the second possibility for re-using textbooks is the one that really stood out to me. You can actually send your used textbooks to Rentbooks.com and they will rent them out for you, and give you the money you've earned. I think this is a great idea, and if I hadn't sold all our old textbooks on Amazon, I'd definitely give it a try. http://www.rentback.com

Anyhow, I thought you all might be interested in hearing about these options if you're trying to figure out what to do with old textbooks, or needing new ones. Be sure to check out the websites, and let me know what you think. Also here's a quick video that shows how Campus Rentals works. 

And now for the question of the day! 

What do you think is the biggest key to Spiritual and Physical success? 
 Leave a comment and let me know what you think, and stay tuned, because next week I'll be asnwering this question in my post on "What I've Learned Recently"! 

May God bless you all today, and help your life to bring glory to His name! 


  1. Dear Elanee,
    After some consideration, my thought is that the greatest key to spiritual and physical success is to Rejoice in The Lord Always.
    I will be looking forward to your answer though!
