Anyone know a good site to get textbook downloads? I need "Food & Culture, 6th" and it's $200+. I'm already thousands in debt from books, I'm ok relieving some of that if it's somewhere online! Any ideas?

$10 a chapter, or $71 for the ebook.

I would just walk into the school bookstore and walk out with it.  There isn't anyone there that will stop you except a bunch of nerds that volunteer.

$108.00 international Ftw. Some colleges frown on this tho, and tell the professors to confiscate them.

Thousands in debt from books  Shocked

No libraries + copy machines in your place?

Libraries only have 1 or 2 of each textbook for a reason. And you won't get one at test time. 10 cents a page can add up.
I knew a few people that would buy the book, go to a shady copy place, and they would copy the book for them and the return the original. I hear they would paying 40-ish or something.

You best bet to do it cheaply is to find a buddy in the class and share a book.

Yes, done that also.

Plus most of the time I managed with just my notes from classes.
Possibilities on this of course vary a lot in different places.
