Class in a couple of days, no books!!!

I start class soon and still have no books and have no way of scraping up the $400+ for them. My job cut my hours way back to where what I was making was going to bills then I got laid off. I have no way of paying for them. A family member has offered help but NO word from her. What should I do out of desparation?

  • most colleges have all required text books in their libraries. go there, plan to stay a while, and read, getting all your assignments done. that's what i have to do this term. good luck!

  • You might try a site called bigwords, they compare prices of all textbook places and you can get you books pretty cheap. If you still can't afford it I would do what the OP said and plan on spending some time at the library.

  • You might also qualify for a book loan through your school. I'd contact financial aid and see what they can do.

  • try your local community action council, sometimes they give temporary help w/school
