As expected I am not the only one blogging about raising textbook prices, and this graph came from a 2008 post made by the Disruptive Library Technology Jester. It details the basic structure of how a textbook is bought to the moment when a student tries to sell the book back. The article where the graph came from, “The Complex World of The Textbook,” contained valuable information on the subject of textbooks ranging from ebooks to student’s reactions to the rising textbook prices.

The article has updated since it’s first post and is still open for those who want to input their thoughts. The link can be found here.
