Students of African studies need not worry about paying for over-priced textbooks anymore – renting textbooks is an option! African textbooks – for example Song of Lawino & Song of Ocol (African Writers) by [Okot P'Bitek], and Of Chameleons and Gods (African Writers SeriesRG) by [Jack Mapanje] – are often some of the most frequently updated books by Publishing companies. The field of African 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 African 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 African classes, buying a used book can be dangerous and costly.
