What a Deal!
« on: February 05, 2012, 09:57:36 AM »
So I was searching around for an out of print book this morning and got this great deal from Amazon.   The deal was so good I had all I could do to not jump on it immediately.

Sounds like they hired the man who sold the pet rock.

Sounds like me text books back in the college days from the school bookstore.

Yep Allen, sounds like a text book to me too! 

I only sold back the texts that I absolutely hated.  The one that comes to mind was a super expensive (and thin) “linear algebra” book we had at the tail end of 2 years of Calculus.  I’m still clueless what that book was trying to teach.  Maybe an early lesson on economic rip-off.

How about those supplements, :evil: written by the professor? You couldn't pass the class without it.

Those supplements were almost always completely worthless.  Even the book stores wouldn’t take them back at the end of a term!
