Asia students will inevitably study India, and in doing so need to obtain India textbooks. But students of India often spend far too much money every semester purchasing India textbooks. India 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 Wildlife Of India, Finding George Orwell in Burma, or Dreaming Vishnus: A Journey through Central India 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 A Blue Hand: The Tragicomic, Mind-Altering Odyssey of Allen Ginsberg, a Holy Fool, a Lost Muse, a Dharma Bum, and His Prickly Bride in India, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780007778690) from your India class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Bombay, Calcutta, or any other subject within India, renting textbooks is the way to go.
