How do these people sleep at night?!?!?!

I made a very painful trip to the bookstore on Friday.

English Book- $61.60 Even my teacher said that was ridiculous!
Health care Marketing- $ 65.60 That's the USED book price!!!!
Accounting Book- $177.70!!! *gasp* *choke* Ummm, excuse me????

Seriously, how to the publishers live with themselves?!?!?!?

Ouch!! I just flashed back to my college years and I think I had blocked how much the books cost! your blog is really fun to look at. I added you to my list on my blog, hope you don't mind! By the way, I am TOTALLY jealous you are going to Forks. It will be SO much fun! Since you don't eat mushrooms drink at Coke (or maybe two)for me!

Oh my hell! You have got to be joking! I am sure it would take lots of strong drugs to make them able to sleep at night.

What kills me is that the bookstore is supposed to help US right? You watch though, they'll buy your book back at a ridiculous price and then sell it for $20 more next semester. I'm like, does it really take $20 to receive my book and sell it back?! I think it's sick that they get to make a PROFIT off text books at all, but then to make a profit over and over is damn irritating!

Phew, thanks for letting me get that out!
