    Bagging Books Brouhaha: University of Dallas has eBooks 

    On the University of Dallas bookstore site
    I came across something I never would have clicked on:


    The University of Dallas is moving into a technological age by adding eBooks to their stock. The site doesn’t provide a list of their eBook titles just yet but if you stop by and ask about them in the bookstore then you might find out which titles are available.

    If you can’t purchase the paperback or hardcover for the day then turn to the eBook.

    Bity Book Bite: Books Breaking the Scale and Bank 

    Some classes have few books needed for them.

    Others have a lot.

    Expect the unexpected and be prepared to possibly get a book voucher because one class may require five or six books for the entire semester.

    Bity Book Bite: “BYNS” Books You Never Sell 

    Sometimes students buy books and then never need them again after that one semester. However there are books that, unless someone told you, you need again for another class later on.

    If you are a Politics major at The University of Dallas, one of these books may be:

    The Republic Of Plato: Second Edition [Paperback]
    Plato (Author), Allan Bloom (Translator)

    In my freshmen year, I used this book for one class: Philosophy and Ethical Life. Now I am a Senior and am in the class Plato’s Republic and to my surprise I needed this book again.

    For the most part this won’t happen but in those few cases where it does find out quickly. It is a really frustrating moment buying the same book more than once.

    Advice: Find out what major you want early and then discuss your classes with your adviser. Your adviser may know which books you need to hold onto. Asking a graduate student who has that field may help as well especially if they took the same classes you are currently taking.

    Here’s hoping your money is well saved.
