Save money on textbooks: save for later
One of my colleagues wrote an awesome article about how to save money on buying textbooks.

Unfortunately, most people have bought their books for the year, and the refund time period is over...but it's definitely something to keep in mind for the summer term and/or next year:
McMaster Combined Honours Cultural Studies & Critical Theory and Anthropology: 2008
McMaster Honours English with a minor in Indigenous Studies: 2010
Carleton University Masters of Arts in Canadian Studies: 2012 (expected)

We are people of this generation, bred in at least modest comfort, housed in universities, looking uncomfortably into the world we inherit. -- Port Huron Statement

Great article! The “blockbuster” for textbooks is pretty neat (although still a bit pricy).

Thanks for the link Danielle!!

I wish I knew about this earlier! But then again, most of my courses this term all have custom courseware.
