Students of Asian studies need not worry about paying for over-priced textbooks anymore – renting textbooks is an option! Asian textbooks – for example In Praise of Shadows by [Jun'ichiro Tanizaki], and Grey Areas: An Anthology of Contemporary Indian Fiction on Ageing by [Ira Raja] – are often some of the most frequently updated books by Publishing companies. The field of Asian 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 Asian 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 Asian classes, buying a used book can be dangerous and costly.
