NY Times: When Books Break the Bank

NY Times: When Books Break the Bank

"In the past two decades, the price of textbooks has soared. The price of educational books and supplies has risen 238 percent, while the price of consumer goods over all has increased only 51 percent, according to the Consumer Price Index... But more and more, students are fighting back, finding ways to reduce the costs. They are sharing books, using library copies or going online to find cheap used copies."
