Simple tip for future 1Ls
« on: January 05, 2006, 06:24:33 PM »
For those of you who are interested. I was determined to not carry a crap-load of books every day to class along with a 6 lbs computer, so i decided to buy used books, and then i took them to Fed-Ex Kinkos and had them unbound (they cut the spine off). It cost me about 2 dollars per book, and they did it all in a matter of hours. I did this for my casebooks as well as my E&E supplements. It was the best move i made all semester. Every week, i took only the section that i needed for the week for each class. I had no problems with studying or losing pages or anything like that.

just FYI, hope it's helpful

those wheelies are pretty convenient though.
as a matter of fact, i just used one of them tonight to lug home 2 cases of vitaminwater.

I would never do that to a book.  But I'm a selfprofessed bibliophile.
