When I close my eyes and think back really hard, I can remember my first semester of college. It was quite a few years ago, but the cloudy memories can come back to me every so often. It was a good time all around. I made new friends, learned a lot of life lessons, and spent a ton of money–mostly on books.
Actually I do not remember using mom and dad’s emergency credit card for anything other than my textbooks. Wow, were those things expensive. I cringed the first time I went to purchase my books. As I continued on my college education, this sick feeling would come to me at the start of each semester because of the copious amounts of money I was throwing to the school’s bookstore.
Of course nowadays, kids have got it easy. Yeah, I said it, easy. The ability to rent textbooks is taking over and it is saving students quite a good chunk of change. How about that?
