Students of Shade studies need not worry about paying for over-priced textbooks anymore – renting textbooks is an option! Shade textbooks – for example Got Shade?: A "Take It Easy" Approach for Today's Gardener by [Carolyn Harstad], and Taylor's Guide to Shade Gardening: More Than 350 Trees, Shrubs, and Flowers That Thrive Under Difficult Conditions, Illustrated with Color Photographs and Detailed Drawings (Taylor's Guides) by [Frances Tenenbaum, Steve Buchanan] – are often some of the most frequently updated books by Publishing companies. The field of Shade is constantly changing, and new editions can come yearly and at a huge cost to students who continually buy new books. So why buy when you can rent cheap textbooks? There are plenty of Shade books to rent – BookRenter has of them all!

Used book sales can be a cheap option as well, but often can be more expensive than textbook rentals. However, there are very few return policies with used books, and especially when taking Shade classes, buying a used book can be dangerous and costly.
