Why Didn't I Think of That?

This funny looking egg called "Shelly" is the theme of a really cool web site.  The web site is  It is a textbook web site that rents textbooks!  Why didn't I think of this?  It makes so much sense!  Why buy textbooks when all you are going to do is sell them back at the end of the semester any way!

I remember buying used books because they were cheaper, but I would have jumped on renting my books!  Now, I had the occational books that I wanted to keep and was glad that I did.  But most of my college textbooks went back to the bookstore at the end of the semester.  The other facinating thing they do is they will buy back textbooks, too. 

From what I can see, all shipping is free!  And that is amazing!  They even plant a tree for every book you return that you rent and every book you sell! 

I cannot speak for how fast or how good the customer service is, but I just love the common sense it is!  Check out and see what you think!


  1. I wish I had known about this during my school days instead of wasting so much money on textbooks! It's ridiculous what they ask poor students to pay.

  2. Sid tries to rent as many books as he can! He discovered renting books several months ago...awesome idea!

  3. What a great idea to rent text books! I remember spending hundreds of dollars each semester on my daughters college books. This would have been a wonderful option!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog on my SITS day. I had so much fun reading everyone's comments!
