In Pursuit of Cheaper Textbooks

Here we are again, starting off a new term on campus, headed to the internet and to bookstores to get our textbooks.

Textbooks are expensive. Too expensive.

We work with students and faculty across the country and where we can, lawmakers to make textbooks more affordable by stopping unfair business practices by publishers that drive up the costs of higher education.

Yesterday Iwent head to head with Bruce Hildebrand, from the Association of American Publishers for a live chat on Textbook Affordability for the Washington Post. INTENSE.

Before you start buying, check out today’s blog from the New York Times on Finding Cheaper Textbooks and our Tips for Saving on Textbooks.

Good luck with your shopping, the new year, and the new semester.
