I am so excited! My alter-ego and I have been in the book business for a lot of years, buying, selling and generally loving, and at times not-so-loving, textbooks. Now, I get to sound-off whenever I like about college textbooks and the textbook industry, while providing hopefully helpful info. What a treat!




For starters, I’d like mention three of my favorite recent titles:

Campbell’s Biology, 9th Edition By Jane B. Reece, Lisa A. Urry, Michael L. Cain and Steven A. Wasserman (Hardcover – Published Oct 7, 2010) ISBN: 9780321558237

If you’ve ever taken Biology, chances are excellent that you bumped into a biology textbook by Campbell. This is an extremely popular book, probably because it makes the subject so incredibly clear. It has many, many pictures, diagrams and illustrations.

CPT 2012 (Cpt / Current Procedural Terminology (Professional Edition)) by Michelle Abraham, Jay T. Ahlman, Caryn Anderson and Angela J. Boudreau (Published Oct 2011) ISBN: 9781603595681

This spiral-bound annual by the American Medical Association is a classic on medical services and procedures. Some reviews find it extremely easy to read and others more difficult. That’s probably more of a reflection the student reader than the book. The online testing component is a great way to sharpen your ability to pass the tests associated with this text.

Community/Public Health Nursing: Promoting the Health of Populations, 5th Edition [Hardcover] By Mary A. Nies PhD RN FAAN FAAHB (Author), Melanie McEwen PhD RN (Author) Published September 2010. ISBN: 9781437708608

Known for its readability, Community Public Health Nursing maintains an ingenious focus on the nurse’s perspective and practical insight into every day public health scenarios and issues. This excellent nursing textbook gets our highest rating. If this book doesn’t impress upon you the need to frequently wash your hands, nothing will!

In future postings, expect textbook resources, commentary, reviews, rants, raves, news and lots of opinion. Who doesn’t love my opinions? I know I do. You probably do as well.

We’ll be reviewing textbooks, and at the same time trying to help you buy and sell textbooks online at the most favorable prices.

Whether you’re buying new or used or selling back your old textbooks, I’ll be providing you resources to hopefully help get the job done.
