history of college textbooks pricing racket

It’s a known fact that for the past decades the price of textbooks has increased at a drastic rate. New editions of textbooks are made every year, rendering the old ones, in most cases, useless, and students have no choice but to purchase them. Thanks to the Internet, students have been able to find a way to cope with the increasing price. A helpful factor is the emergence of websites like BooksRun and bookstores that give students the opportunity to rent textbooks for a given period of time.

It’s not such a big secret that publishers keep making new editions of popular textbook titles every single year, but apparently, some books never go out of fashion as they keep holding the top places in our sales rankings. Most of them are required basics in such courses as Anatomy & Physiology, Sociology, Calculus etc. and serve as an introduction into the world of other specialized subjects.

The most popular categories that we were selling right now proved to be Anatomy and Mathematics. Sociology and Biology were slightly behind, but what they were lacking in quantity they gained in speed of how quickly they were sold.
