Obvious truth as it may be, it always bears repeating—college is costly.
Although tuition is always the first and foremost expense everyone worries about, the price of college books continues on an endless uphill climb. Specifically, college textbook prices have increased by over 1,000% since the 1970s.
Sadly enough, most college books have a short utility timespan. After fulfilling their purpose, their fate will likely be that of a dust collector on a bookshelf or in a forgotten drawer. Unless, of course, you SELL them.
