you can always sell them once you finished with them anyway, so it won't be a total loss
#12

agreed...plus its hard to find them i usually find!

Well that depends...im doing law and if a new edition has been released since you bought it and trying to sell it then its near enough a lost cause!

My books average £30-45 each...so i feel your pain micoo.
But then this year i have to buy 6 textbooks and ideally at least 4 statute books...
