RentBack Books Brings Smiles

Congratulations. You graduated high school, and you're completing last minute plans for college. You've saved for tuition, room and board, and even the little extras for the dorm room. But have you thought about books? I wonder how many people get bowled over from sticker shock when purchasing college textbooks. They aren't cheap! However, now you have a new option to get ready for school without forking over another thousand dollars on books. 

I'm talking about, and their fairly new program Rent Back Books. RentBack is a new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options.

Here's a clip to show you how book rentals work:

Here are some perks:

-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

Operation Smile is a wonderful program that provides crucial surgery to repair cleft lip, cleft palate, or other facial deformities for chilldren around the globe. 

Every time you rent a book from, a donation will be made to help a child get a smile. What could be better than that?

So what are you waiting for? Check out and

#AtoZ: C - Campus Book Rental & College Joke

Having put two kids through college and a third currently away, rising school costs are akin to sticking a vacuum hose into a wallet and sucking money out. As a result, I'm always looking for ways to make and save money. Voila! Here is an idea for the student studying french or event management, like my kid. provides students with the opportunity to save 40-90% off book store prices. They provide free shipping, both ways, allow kids to highlight in books, are flexible about renting periods, and donate to Operation Smile. You can learn more about by clicking the video below. 

Also, check out their rent back program. This new initiative allows students to rent back books they own. A kid could earn two to four times more money than what they'd make through other buyout options.


Finally, here's a college joke in keeping with the spirit of my humor blog:

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day. "In English," he said, "A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative." 

A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."
