Textbooks, most of us had to deal with them. WAIT, what am I saying? ALL of us had to deal with them; and we are proud of our overpriced, loosely fact-checked stack of paper.
My family spends 450$ (400 EUR) on textbooks for me alone, every single year; that might sound like a hefty but necessary purchase, but add another child and that price goes up to almost 1 thousand dollars every year. I’m just in high school, college textbooks cost twice as much (with an average of 1,200 $ a year per student).. could a broke college student afford such a expense?
