Thank god for Amazon's used books. That place used to save me hundreds every quarter. Especially when you could find the international edition of your $130 textbook for $30 or less.

There are a fair number of folks out there trying to get the costs down. See the OpenStax project to see a number of free textbooks- they have backing from a bunch of big donors to try and create basically the whole set of intro texts, all available free online or for printing costs if you want a dead tree version.

/Only have students buy one $30 book for my course- everything else is online, either on the web or through electronic reserve with the library.
