This funny looking egg called "Shelly" is the theme of a really cool web site. The web site is Chegg.com. 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 Chegg.com out and see what you think!
