The Stages of Buying Textbooks: Told by Social Media Posts
Here are the stages of purchasing textbooks, as told by social media posts.
First, there is the purchase. Students are full of disbelief and use sarcasm to mask their feelings.
This feeling of sadness is followed by anger. Sometimes, this anger is misplaced towards bookstore employees. Sorry?
Student discounts and buying used books rarely goes as planned.
After the semester comes to a close, students seek relief by attempting to sell books back to the bookstore. This rarely goes as planned.
Lastly, students who are unable to sell back their books find some creative uses for them. Discarded textbooks become the most expensive dorm room furniture.
Now, what if I told you that you could purchase your math textbooks digitally for less than $10? No more anger, sadness, or frustration! You may not be able to add to your textbook graveyard/TV stand at the end of the semester, but with the money saved on textbooks you could buy real furniture! There's also no need to stress about selling back textbooks with an affordable, digital copy. Interested on hearing more? Head to our website to learn more about the Worldwide Center of Math!
