Now renting college textbooks

The soaring costs of college textbooks has been making headlines for quite some time now. Last August, for instance, the University of Arkansas predicted that US college students would spend $2.5 million on textbooks in that month alone.

There may come a day when students do all their reading online and will no longer be troubled by the expense of enormous books that come bundled with supplementary CDs. But until that day arrives, here's an interesting alternative: You can rent your textbooks.

Bookrenter.com offers millions of college textbooks for rent. You choose among different rental periods and delivery methods.

Bookrenter.com partners with Bookswim.com, a Netflix-style service for readers.
