spman: sendtodave: I saved lots of money by committing theft!

In 99% of all cases I agree with your sarcasm completely, but the college textbook industry is an incredibly huge racket, and a major contributor to what makes going to school unaffordable for many people. These stupid books are marked up 100% and sometimes more above what they cost to produce, and they insist that schools only use the most recent edition which in many cases just means that the cover is changed, and some of the chapters are shuffled around. In the case of textbooks, I say anything that lets you have some advantage over the publishers that are trying to screw you is fine.

I totally agree.  It is better to steal expensive things.

I love Barnes & Noble. It's like Amazon's showroom.
