Why are college textbooks so expensive?


It’s a very good question posed by the Good website. Why are college textbooks so expensive? The answer is because prices are artificially inflated. This article debates the pros and cons of ebooks but details the fears of publishers that widespread use of etextbooks will lead to large scale book piracy.

I would like to add one thing – never ever pay the list price for a college textbook. There is always a choice and AbeBooks remains a very sound source for affordable college books. Every day thousands of students find traditional paper textbooks at AbeBooks for very cheap prices. Just take a look at what they say on Twitter.

STUDENTS: abebooks.com, type in the ISBN of your textbooks and buy from this site. Just found a $138 textbook on there for 13.99, no joke.
