Have you wondered how textbooks appear at your doorstep? We would like to take the credit for all the hard work, but we cannot! BooksRun relies on several postal services to ship textbooks you’ve bought or rented. We process and prepare an order in our storage facilities, and then we hand it to a delivery company. These postal companies make sure that our textbook services are available to everyone across the country.

However, in recent weeks and months, we have all faced a nationwide problem of constant postal delays, no matter what company one uses (USPS, UPS, FedEx, and so on). It is a systemic failure that was only worsened by the ongoing pandemic crisis. Both customers and businesses who relied on delivery services are affected by this problem.

However, these methods can be extremely time-consuming and might not yield the expected level of memorization and comprehension. We want to share with you another very appealing and not so painstaking method of learning from a textbook. In a nutshell — instead of writing down quotes or whole paragraphs from your textbooks, you should be forming questions!
