College textbooks are way overpriced. There’s no getting around that. Every person who has ever been inside a college classroom knows this.
But there’s a new app aiming to help. Book Cycle is essentially a marketplace for college textbooks much like eBay or Criagslist. You can find the books you need locally, and there’s a feature that tells you if you’re getting a good deal is not.
I have no idea how much the app actually helps, but anything that aims to lower the costs of college is good in my book.
