Textbooks Renting Perks For College-Goers

I'm still hoping to go back to college after my kids are settled in school. One thing I know about being in college is how expensive it can be trying to get everything you need for your education.

It is a wonderful thing to be able to rent textbooks for your studies. If you are a college student or have someone in your family or friend circle who is, then you need to know the perks of textbook renting!

CampusBookRentals are offering some exciting perks for textbook rentals!
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-we donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
...and more

CampusBookRentals.com began renting textbooks in August of 2007. Since then, we've served thousands and thousands of customers on more than 5,000 different college campuses in the fabulous USA.

It is even better when a company is a charitable organization!

CampusBookRentals has teamed up with Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it.
The long term Improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We have committed to donating enough money to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope to beat that number, but it's a significant commitment. Like Big!
So for EVERY book rented this year, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile with our sights set on meeting and exceeding our goal of 1,000 lives changed. So add that extra book to your cart, and consider this goal as you go back to school this year.

Watch the video below to learn more about the process and this company!

The Lives of Others

It's always hard to watch these movies but this was a great film and should be watched twice to get the story in all it's movements.

I cried twice. When she was raped....well that is what you would call it. There is no other name for it. And when Weisler found the book and saw his name..his initials and said: It's for me. No need to wrap it.

You should listen to the commentary also. It's mostly apart of history.

When a successful playwright and his actress companion become subjects of the Stasi's secret surveillance program in 1980s East Berlin, their friends, family -- and even those doing the watching -- find their lives forever changed.

Just imagine that people allow a group of people to take over a country like that.  Just sit back and let government...and that's what happens.

1. What's your favorite magazine to read?
2. Do you get it for free or subscribe?


 THIS 

      
1. If you were free to just hop in the car and drive, where would you go?

A beach where I could wear a bathing suit and swim

Or, if you could hop a plane and go anywhere, where?
I'd go visit my mom in the Caribbean, just to spend some time with her.

2. What's your most recently read favorite book?
I read three of them. It was very different and wow!!! The Mating, The Keeping, The Finding

3. What's your favorite Spring Break memory?
I actually don't have one.

4. What do you put in your child's Easter basket? Or, for those w/o kids, what was put in your childhood basket?
I don't make Easter Baskets. We go to a church outing where they search for Easter egg and have lots of kiddy fun.

5. Do you get a summer haircut?

I don't get hair cuts. My hair doesn't grow at that rate to get them.
