Come on, you know that these are not the only non-text in that store. You know they have some mess by Steve Harvey and Oprah up in that joint.

I know this for a fact because when I was working at Mercer University's School of Pharmacy I had to use that Scantron. Try grading test for classes that have 90 students and you will be grateful for that scantron.

I hated that job too.

Probably too much overhead to house and constantly update various editions of texts.

I lot of schools have online bookstores that probably ship out of a shared, central location.

Brick and mortar campus stores are now just focused on supplies and school para, and maybe the odd 'flavor of the month' offering (like Zane)

you got me
but even the college bookstore has been gobbled up by amazon and bn.com
that's where all these bookstores feed off of anyway

whatever happened to walking down to the SC and copping whatever book that's on the shelf to tide you through a long crisp aired fall weekend?
curl up in your XL twin bed with a book and a cup of cocoa and get lost in the story.

oh, yall aint do that?

i know this because i tried to be slick and buy my cousin's math book for her off Amazon
nope nope
that $125 book is good or only ONE USE because each book contains a code to access the homework problems online

this was at Stephen F Austin by the way

but yeah, i feel you
and until i ran into this problem last year i'd say the same

oh, that math book was written by the professor who taught the course and was the dept chair so basically dude was making $125 per student he had enrolled in his class on top of his salary

and the book was really some bullshit pamphlet he had his assistants xerox using the schools paper/toner

On more than one occasion we happened to find the teacher's edition with the answer book. After my freshmen year I think I spent less then $200 total on all future textbooks.

but im telling you at SFASU you pay $125 for an access code so you can do your homework problems
one code is only good for ONE STUDENT
so that is the professors hustle
making each student for over $125 just to...

you know what, i smell a law suit
because that's not fucking right
shit, they even had a $200 biololgy/zoology book

That's a result of the majority of college kids not only realizing how ridiculous the prices of books are at the bookstore but finding an alternate solution and either buying them cheaper from Amazon or using one of the rental book dealers. Schools needed to find a new way to ensure their students are giving them as much money as possible even after paying the outrageous tuition bill.
