New York, NY (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
As the Fall semester winds down and the year comes to a close, millions of students will be returning to school in January to start the Spring semester. With an ailing economy and talks about an impending fiscal cliff, they will be once again faced with anything but cheap textbook prices despite federal legislation that was intended to make textbooks more affordable.
Rather, what students on campuses across the country have experienced is the constant releasing of new editions of textbooks. These new editions usually do not have significant changes and can be viewed as a business strategy used to continue to command high textbook prices.
Undeniably in recent years there have more options for college students purchasing textbooks, especially in the electronic sphere however more can still be done. Students find themselves not even being able to take advantage of the relatively new fad of being able to do textbook rentals because of new editions being constantly released.
Although it cannot be denied that the digital age has revolutionized the textbook industry, estimates from OnlineEducation.net predict that by 2014 only 20% of all textbook purchases will be ebooks(http://www.onlineeducation.net/digital-textbooks). Many students still prefer the traditional textbook despite slightly higher costs.
This is where http://www.textBookbud.com believes they will be beneficial to thousands of college students by giving them the ability to efficiently buy cheap textbooks, rent textbooks, or also sell textbooks that they have at the end of the semester, saving money and time.
textBookbud.com is owned by BTW Group LLC a New York based company that is ran by students, and former students who know the burden of the costs associated with textbooks every semester.
