For your college courses, what is one item that you as a student probably can’t live without? Textbooks! One downfall many students can identify with is that all of those textbooks can really weigh you down. In fact each of your books can weigh up to 5 pounds. Ridiculous, huh? While you might get a great workout carrying them across campus, I imagine it becomes a tiring process after awhile.
The great news is that a major shift is occurring in the textbook industry. This is the age of eBooks! They are quick, they are easy to use, and they are fast becoming the norm, so if you haven’t jumped on the tech train yet, this is your perfect opportunity to do so.
Savings for students
If you’re looking to save some money on your school supplies this semester, look no further than the deals that CengageBrain.com is offering you. To get five dollars off your purchase of fifty dollars or more of textbooks, eBooks and study tools, use coupon code URBOOKS at CengageBrain.com.
For a limited time (8/29/2014 – 9/5/2014) you can also receive 10% off eBooks when you use coupon code EBOOK10 at CengageBrain.com. This is a great deal because eBooks are already less expensive than textbooks – and a little extra off never hurt anyone.
The perks of eBooks
In the ePublishers Weekly article “30 Benefits of Ebooks” posted on January 28, 2008, by Michael Pastore, readers are given numerous reasons why eBooks have many advantages over physical books. Here are a few of the arguments given.
- Once you order your eBook online, it can be downloaded within minutes. This way you don’t have to wait several days for your book to be shipped, which brings me to my next point…
- You save even more money because you don’t have to worry about shipping or printing costs.
- The text can be re-sized so if you prefer to read size 48 font – do as you wish!
I could go on and on about why you should go for the eBook version of your course textbooks this semester, but I think you’d rather head straight over to CengageBrain.com where you will find the textbooks, eBooks, rentals and study tools you need to survive the semester.
