We often receive requests for information on lower cost alternatives to purchasing expensive textbooks. The Ohio Board of Regents has been working on a solution and shares links to help Ohio college students. Last July, Amazon began a Kindle textbook rental program. Since print copies of textbooks are also popular with students, Amazon has now begun a print textbook rental program as well. You will find links to the Amazon rental programs and other suggestions for handling college costs on the University System of Ohio web site.
