E-books and non-traditional ways of reading have been around for years now. More and more people are buying e-books everyday, and not just for fun. Students have quickly learned that it can be less expensive to buy an electronic copy of a text book or a professor’s book, than to buy it at the University’s book store. There is a great new website to help in finding the best cost of an e-book called Luzme.
When you visit Luzme you can search books by title, author, series, or even ISBN number. Once you have found the book that you are searching for, Luzme shows you (in a nice neat graph) the prices of the the book from multiple online shopping websites. For example, When I type in “Another Roadside Attraction” I learn the following…
We can get our favorite Tom Robbins book anywhere from $10.65 to $11.99. We know what you’re thinking, “That’s not such a big cost difference.” But what if we told you many of the textbooks show up with cost differences from $5 to $10? It’s a great way to help college students save big money every semester when they need multiple books for every class.
Do you know any other ways students save money on books? Let us know in the comments.
