Every semester I always cringe when it comes to picking up textbooks because they are always so expensive. But nothing grinds my gears more, than when a professor does this.

This year I'm taking a light load (only two classes), so I didn't think my books would be that much. This semester one of my instructors decided to chose a brand new book to use which means I couldn't rent a used one for a cheaper price. One of my books was only $30, while the brand new one, $150.

I'm all for learning new things, but really, a brand new textbook? I understand new stuff happens and we need to learn about it, but at least bring the price down. How about a studdent discount on textbooks please?!
