Biological Sciences students will inevitably study Paleontology, and in doing so need to obtain Paleontology textbooks. But students of Paleontology often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Paleontology textbooks. Paleontology books can be very expensive when you buy new textbooks, while a rented textbook can be half the price or less. For example, a rental copy of either Microfossils, Under a Green Sky: Global Warming, the Mass Extinctions of the Past, and What They Can Tell Us About Our Future, or Polymerid Tribolites from the Cambrian of Northwestern Hunan, China, Two-Volume Set (v. 1) can be 75% less than what you might pay in a college bookstore.

Textbook rentals are easy (and even cheaper than buying used textbooks! And there are a number of ways to find the rentals themselves. If you wanted to rent British Fossils, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780045620012) from your Paleontology class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Paleobiology, Paleozoology, or any other subject within Paleontology, renting textbooks is the way to go.
