Sorry that we’re late with blogging today. The US college textbook season is almost upon us and we’re preparing for our busiest time of the year. One of our tech folks informed me a few months ago that at the very peak of the Fall back-to-school season (last week of August), AbeBooks.com experiences 90 book searches per second.
Yesterday, we were recommended for offering cheap textbooks by Gerri Willis, CNN’s personal finance guru, and we always see a flurry of articles about the high price of US college textbooks in August.
I went to college in the UK more years ago than I can remember but was astounded by the list prices of textbooks when I came over here.
